Hear directly from industry peers as they talk about their learning curves and the benefits of applying Dolby Vision® HDR and Dolby Atmos® technologies to their storytelling. Across all genres – comedy, drama, westerns, thrillers – they’ve all found it made a significant difference, and don’t want to go back.
“Was the experience positive? For our customers, it’s a clear yes. For us, it’s a clear yes. It proves we are state-of-the-art when it comes to using new technologies and, secondly, our experience of making the series convinced us it is a fantastic technique. It helped my career as a creative. I can certainly recommend it to others.” Marcus Ammon, producer of TV series Das Boot, Senior vice president of original production, Sky Deutschland
The artistic and business benefits of Dolby Atmos in post – Niko Remus
Post-production (aka post) has evolved dramatically – afrom the days of “we’ll fix it in post” and having to fix everything that went wrong on set, to being a full partner in the creative process. New technology has redefined post’s role in movie making.
Niko Remus, a German post-production supervisor and head of studies for the APostLab workshop, talks to us about how new technology — Dolby Atmos in particular—has started a revolution in film sound, both creatively and commercially.
Case study: "Freaks – You Are One Of Us"
Not all heroes wear capes! Creators of Netflix movie Freaks – You Are One Of Us found Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos gave them extra superpowers in their storytelling “Our combination of being supernatural on one hand, but with a grounded – almost art-house – story, we thought Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos could give us a great ‘canvas’ out of which the hero moments could really pop.”
Sky comedy drama Brassic features Dolby Atmos in Season 2 after success of first season. Having used Dolby Atmos in season 1 of Brassic the production team knew exactly how to use the immersive audio tech in Season 2, from large and noisy fight scenes, to quieter moments such as a child running upstairs. As Tony Greenwood, dubbing mixer on the show explains: “The whole Atmos mix gets louder and is enveloping but still works really well when you fold it down!”
Case study: "Tribes of Europa"
“That felt cinematic, like a big-screen feature film picture for the small screen.” That’s was the producer of hot new Netflix TV drama Tribes of Europa thought after experiencing it in Dolby Vision HDR! Featuring scenes inspired by Blade Runner “…HDR gave us the confidence that we could get that movie’s contrasts and clarity, as well as the depths of the murkiness.”
Case study: "Love and Anarchy"
Dolby Vision proved a surprisingly good weapon in rewriting the rules for Scandi Television with Netflix’s worldwide hit Love and Anarchy. “Rom-com has its own aesthetic. We’re bringing the viewer into a world that is recognisable and relatable…one that has a sheen, like an urban photoshoot for a fashionable lifestyle magazine."
Case study: "Betonrausch"
In this new case study, Rotor Film reveals the difference Dolby Vision made. It gives “extra headroom to really let an image shine or glow. You can make the image look more three-dimensional in subtle ways, and you have more colour space, which makes things possible that weren’t possible before – bright blue skies, fires that really have colour and detail and so on.”
Case study: "Das Boot"
German TV series Das Boot, a Sky Deutschland Originals, successfully used Dolby Atmos 3D sound to enhance its storytelling. Sky and Bavaria Studios talks about it in this new case study: “Of course, the loud moments will stick with you. You’re there being bombed from all sides. But the very quiet moments when you’re on the boat, the whole crew is waiting for the next attack and nothing is being said. You hear the silence differently. It’s equally exciting and the audience reaction [at the premiere] was fantastic.”
