NIFCO believes that when it’s time to finish your project, you should be able to do so in a technical environment that maintains the creative collaboration that is integral to every aspect of filmmaking – script, production and post.

OUR FACILITIES

 

SGO - MISTIKA

 

Our main picture suite features Mistika. This system is the ultimate tool for colour grading and finishing any project. Using Mistika gives a grading session the ability to try anything creative, in real time while working with any format.

 

The Mistika takes NIFCO’s capabilities to another level... whatever delivery format you want to throw at us, NIFCO can deliver.

 

Colourist Steve Cook is available to consult with you on your project.

DaVINCI RESOLVE

 

Our second picture suite features DaVinci Resolve, a powerful software / hardware combination package that includes the Resolve colour correction software running on LinuxOS and the big DaVinci control panels.

It performs high-quality precise colour correction in real-time up. The Resolve software is by far the most popular grading program today.
