Like their colleagues on set, the Czechs working in our local post-production facilities are the best in their field. Czech post facilities are as modern as those you'll find anywhere and deliver award-winning results. Our post people speak English so they can work directly with you to get the look you want.
Just how good are they? Here's a few of the high-end productions we've worked on in recent years: The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Wanted, Doom, Hellboy, Blade II, AvP: Alien Vs. Predator. Czech post-production teams have worked with such leading international directors as Francis Ford Coppola, Nikita Mikhalkov, Anthony Minghella and Tom Tykwer. Local visual-effects and post-production company Universal Production Partners (UPP) has won numerous awards,including Emmys for The Company and Children Of Dune.
In addition to providing dailies and digital transfer for productions on location, Czech post facilities have high-end editing suites — both digital linear and non-linear. Local 3D and 2D animation is state-of-the-art. Our CGI people can add any visual effects you chose not to capture on film.
The Czech Republic has a long tradition of visual creativity. Czech animators such as Karel Zeman, Jiri Trnka and Jan Svankmajer are known throughout the world. The current generation of animators and special-effects people are building on their traditions today.
Then there's sound post-production. Our sound engineers are accustomed to recording live sound on location — one of our best, Petr Forejt, was nominated for an Oscar® in 2008 for his contribution to Wanted. Local studios offer complete sound processing, from composition to recording to mastering. Prague has many recording facilities, including those at Barrandov Studios, the studios of the Czech Philharmonic, Soundsquare and Cinemasound, to name just a few. And Czech symphony musicians are in constant demand to record film scores like those for Being John Malkovich, The Assassination Of Richard Nixon, and The Lives Of Others.
