WorleyWorks, LLC. has added a Mistika Precision Color Grading Panel from SGO to furnish its expanding grading department in response to demand for one-stop color and finishing service.

WorleyWorks became the first New York studio to invest in Mistika. Having recently added a second system earlier this year, they have now integrated Mistika and new panels into their workflow. The company’s two Mistika systems play a vital role, where one is used as the predominant client-facing “Hero” suite and the second for back-ups or on set purposes. WorleyWorks has created a niche in the feature film and commercials markets by working with directors such as Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy and Ang Lee, where they produced one of the country’s first High Frame Rate-Stereo 3D-2K 60p workflows.

Jack Reynolds, WorleyWorks’ DI colorist said, “The precision panel is the final piece of the puzzle for us, the real-time performance of Mistika has always been a massive asset when working against tight deadlines, when you combine this with the added tactile control and custom mapping features of the precision panel, you create an environment where creativity and efficiency can coexist. The more efficient our pipeline, the more time we have in the color session to create beautiful images and the happier our clients are on completion.”

Founded seven years ago by Greg and Minah Worley, WorleyWorks provides bespoke services in 2D, HFR, Stereo 3D, and 4K postproduction, including DI color grading and compositing, high-speed lighting, for clientèle that include Paramount, Universal and Viacom.
