Film Post Production
John has worked on several projects for the IMAX Advanced Technologies Group.
He co-developed the pipeline system for the IMAX DMR process which converts 35mm film to a 70mm format. This allows the conversion of feature films for day-and-date release in IMAX theatres. This process is highly automated and the pipeline manages the entire process from initial editorial input to final negative assembly.
John was also a co-designer and developer of the pipeline system for IMAX's live action 2D-3D film conversion. This pipeline seamlessly integrates the work of a large number of visual effects artists with an automated multi-stage conversion process. Due to the unique characteristics of each project this pipeline has been designed to be highly adaptable permitting rapid wholesale customization on a per-project basis.
