yU+co. Turns Downtown Los Angeles into a Mammoth Digital Playground for Grand Park and The Music Center’s N.Y.E.L.A.

In a first-of-its-kind immersive spectacle, dazzling digital imagery will appear to “bounce” between City Hall, the County Hall of Records and The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion as Los Angeles counts down to 2016.

HOLLYWOOD—On New Year’s Eve, three iconic buildings in downtown Los Angeles will provide the canvas for a projection mapping display unlike anything seen before. Part of the 3rd annual Grand Park + Music Center’s N.Y.E.L.A., the breathtaking spectacle of morphing light, color, shape and sound will envelop—and sometimes appear to travel between—the facades of City Hall, the County Hall of Records and The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and celebrate Los Angeles as it joins other cities around the globe in ringing in the New Year.  

Conceived by Garson Yu, creative director of the multi-media digital design studio yU+co., in tandem with The Music Center’s Grand Park team, the projection mapping display will be the first ever to join three towering structures with synchronized animation.  The more than 50,000 people expected to fill Grand Park, The Music Center Plaza and adjoining streets during the event will be fully immersed by the display with a theme of human connectivity and global celebration.

Sony Pictures Creates 4K Restoration of Rita Hayworth Musical “Cover Girl”

CULVER CITY, CALIF.— Sony Pictures Entertainment recently completed an all-new 4K restoration of Cover Girl, director Charles Vidor’s 1944 Technicolor musical that marked one of the first starring roles for Rita Hayworth. The new restoration, completed under the supervision of Grover Crisp, Sony Pictures EVP Asset Management, Film Restoration & Digital Mastering, recently premiered at The Museum of Modern Art in New York’s just-concluded 13th International Festival of film preservation, To Preserve and Project.

Cover Girl, in which Hayworth plays a chorus girl who’s given a chance for stardom, was conceived as a showcase for Columbia Pictures’ fast rising star. With terrific songs from Jerome Kern and Ira Gershwin, including the Oscar-nominated “Long Ago and Far Away”, the film also won an Oscar for the musical score by Carmen Dragon and Morris Stoloff. It is also notable as the first film where co-star Gene Kelly was given an opportunity to choreograph his own dance numbers (working with his longtime partner Stanley Donen).
“While Rita is the star, I really think of this as a Gene Kelly film,” observes Crisp.  “He was on loan from another studio and was given much more freedom to invent on this film that he was accustomed to.   You can see in the dance numbers what could be called the genesis of his later mature work in films like Singin’ in the Rain and An American in Paris.   The Alter Ego number, for example, where he dances with his mirror image, is both a technical and a choreographic success.”

Tattersall Turns Edit Suite into a “Virtual Mix Stage” for Second Installment Of Multi-Award Winning Limited Series Fargo

TORONTO—Tattersall Sound and Picture is currently providing final sound mixing services for the second installment of the critically acclaimed limited series Fargo, and the Toronto studio has come up with a unique way for the show’s Los Angeles-based producers to monitor the work.

Using a blend of proprietary and off the shelf technology, Tattersall engineers have turned one of the Los Angeles editing suites used by the show’s picture editors into a virtual mixing suite. The edit suite is linked to Tattersall’s mix stage and tuned to its acoustic signature so that producers there hear precisely the same sound as the mixers in Toronto.

Remote monitoring of mix sessions is a common practice, but it typically involves the linkage of two mixing facilities via expensive ISDN lines. For Fargo producers, that would mean leaving their production offices and booking time at a third-party sound facility. “We looked for a method of making mix playbacks as painless as possible for the producers to attend,” explains Tattersall Sound Chief Engineer Ed Segeren. “We discussed the idea of building a virtual mix stage with the producers, and they were very enthusiastic about the approach. They recognized the benefit of not being at the mercy of another facility’s schedule or sonics.”
