Based in Copenhagen Slowmotion is a full service post production and VFX company. Our small talented team share the same passion for helping others tell their stories through convincing images & technical craftsmanship. Our team is specialised in visual effects, grading and technical workflow for high end feature films, television and corporate videos. We truly believe that the combination of interpretation, dialogue and craftsmanship is the best way to reach the right result for each unique project. In Slowmotion we have no employees - we only have true passionados! From our charismatic studio in urban Copenhagen, we welcome you into our world of scrutinizing eyes & dedicated hearts.
Slowmotion was founded in 2006 as a visual effect company by Ian Bach & Tine Nikali. We met at Gearless [Filmbyen, DK] in 2001. Both of us were trained in VFX by supervisor Peter Hjorth. At Gearless, we did features like It’s All About Love, Dogville, Manderlay, Brothers, etc. Since 2006 Slowmotion produced VFX on films like Melancholia, The Hunt, Love Is All You Need, Someone You Love, Itsi Bitsi and many more. In 2010 we incorporated grading into our business, including corporate videos for e.g. Maersk and DSB, as well as fiction films and commercials.
Our infrastructure is specifically designed to fit our use with a tight Linux pipeline on both servers and clients. The system takes advantage of a global namespace via GlusterFS, and we generally use and develop open source software where applicable. For dailies, online and grading, Davinci Resolve is our main tool. Our grading theatre is built for both film and video grading, and does grading for both in almost the same process. Everything produced by Slowmotion is thoroughly screened in our theatre and all results are technically verified. It is of great importance to us that no errors occur and communication, technique and processes run smoothly.
The most essential thing in a production is that everyone is telling the same story. Every little decision in the process has an impact on the final result. As a small post facility, our specific strength is our ability to dedicate the right method and passion to every unique production. We have no big hierarchy, which gives us the flexibility to quickly adjust to your project’s needs during the production.
We take care of all project components, offering a complete post-production solution. Naturally, we also offer single services: - planning - handling camera raw files - tape backup - dailies - online - grading - visual effects - reps & fixes - graphics - sound design
We deeply value the collaborative process with our clients; the bouncing of creative ideas, appropriate to each specific context, including all technical aspects. The right solution may not be the most expensive one, nor the most obvious one. Dedicating the right amount of energy to the right elements, and approaching all VFX shots with an understanding of each shot’s contribution to the overall story, is crucial to ensure the best possible final result.
The backbone of Slowmotion is two solid individuals, both with a passionate personal engagement in the company. We have a dedicated technical brain and system administrator, as well as a solid team of well qualified freelancers.
