The south of Spain has its own post-production studio, Antípodas Film Lab, the first of its kind in the region. Based in Seville, the state-of-the-art facility is co-founded by a group of post-production experts including José MG Moyano (“Marshland,” “Unit 7”), Juan Ventura Pecellín (“Marshland,” “Juan of the Dead”), José Manuel Rocha (“Tamara and the Ladybug”, “The Plague”), Manuel Terceño (“Swamp”, “Parking”), Amparo Martínez (“The Head”, “Yo, mi mujer y mi mujer muerta”) and Darío García García (“The Plague”, “The Challenge: ETA”).
Although the studio is based in Spain and most of their work is likely to be done on Spanish productions, their ambitions certainly seem to stretch far beyond the Iberian Peninsula. In fact, the Antípodas website is published in English, inviting companies around the world to use the facilities and staff working there and emphasizing connectivity, including an internal 100gbe/40gbe network and a line dedicated fiber.
Antípodas Film Lab facilities include three fully equipped editing rooms, Dolby Vision HDR color grading room, 2K viewing room, VFX room, digital lab services, DIT station and live creation and LTO. Antípodas is also one of five LiveGrain certified post-production facility partners in Spain. The facility’s DI departments consist of several basic lighting systems, combined with 4K HDR calibrated display technology for cinema and video workflows.
Importantly, the studios have been established as a sustainable, carbon-neutral facility, earning the Climate Neutral Now label, a recognition founded by the United Nations and awarded to companies that show leadership in climate change. address climate change and establish practices that can help the world achieve global climate neutrality goals.
At the moment, several projects are already being processed in the facilities, including the next fiction feature by Atípica and Movistar Plus “Modelo 77” by filmmaker Alberto Rodríguez (“Unit 7”, “The Plague”) and a pair of documentaries in “Nacer para ganar” by Jorge Laplace, produced by North Film, and “Volando” by Javier Limón, produced by Casa Limón.
Other projects that have been served at the studio ahead of its official launch include Santi Amodeo’s “Las gentiles” and Violeta Salama’s “Alegría”, each slated to compete at the Seville European Film Festival in November. Post-production services are also underway, including VFX, for Alexis Morante’s “El Universo de Oliver”, produced by Pecado Films, and two La Claqueta productions in Rubin Stein’s “Tin & Tina” and “Secaderos by Rocio Mesa.
