Java Post Production will be providing colour correction, mastering, and final deliverables to the upcoming sci-fi feature film thriller The Recall, starring Wesley Snipes and R.J. Mitte (Breaking Bad), and produced by Minds Eye Entertainment.
The Recall was shot for the new Barco Escape, three-screen, panoramic theatrical format, which fully surrounds audiences and offers the ultimate immersive cinema experience. Portions of the film were also shot in Virtual Reality.

The Barco Escape format is characterized by the addition of two screens to the side of the main screen, providing a 270-degree panoramic experience. Of course, that multi-screen format means one of our Java Post colour correction suites is going to need a little modification.
Here you see three Flanders Scientific professional broadcast reference monitors being tested at Java Post for the 270-degree Barco Escape view. Three times the screens, three times the colour correction, three times the fun!
Above, you can see the massive wall-mount bracket that will hold the 3 monitors. This will all soon be installed into one of Java Post's colour correction suites.
Java Post technician Trevor Bennett calibrates the monitors, so that they will all respond as one, with consistent colour temperature and clarity across all 3 screens. There's lots of tweaking involved, but tweaking (not twerking) is something Trevor does extremely well.
