Los Angeles/Hamburg (June 1, 2004)–A major upcoming release from MGM due that debuted at the Cannes Film Festival 2004 was edited solely using one of Hollywood’s most advanced Nuendo cinema post pro systems. Post production veteran John Ross adopted Steinberg’s Nuendo Media Production system as his central tool throughout the post process on this major new cinema film.
Starring Kevin Kline and Ashley Judd, De-Lovely depicts the life of composing legend Cole Porter, and features many of Porter’s unforgettable songs. Industry veteran John Ross and his team were selected to complete the post for this major MGM feature, which turned out to be just the excuse for Ross to let his brand new Nuendo system flex its muscles for the first time on a major project.
When asked how he found integrating Nuendo into his workflow for the first time, Ross commented: “Of all of our experiences [of introducing new technology solutions at our facility] the transition into Nuendo was a lot easier.”
Nuendo was used for all audio editing tasks during he post production process in Delovely. Comparing Nuendo to other editing systems available, Ross commented: “The editing features are, I think, in general far superior in Nuendo. The editing world has been well covered by other systems. And these guys at Steinberg have taken that basis and taken it to another level.”
Ross singles out the exemplary networking functionality in Nuendo in a post production context. “The networking across machines for editing, or interactive editing as I call it, is another layer that hasn’t been achieved by any other system that I’ve seen. This new world of collective editing is extremely powerful.”
