(Madrid, Spain--January 30, 2015) Post produced entirely using SGO's Mistika, suspense thriller Marshland is Spain's film of the year, nominated for seventeen Goya Awards. Best Special Effects nominee for his role as colorist and digital effects supervisor, Juan Ventura Pecellín remarked, “Mistika's impressive capabilities helped us to achieve a 100% realistic look which was nothing less than spectacular.”
Mistika played an integral part throughout the whole filmmaking process of Marshland from pre-production, image-testing, LUTs inspection, ISO, densities through to complete post. Mistika's technology enabled the team to work at resolutions of 4K, up to 7K of complex aerial scenes for pre-visualisation and colour grading, coupled with intense car chase sequences that involved intricate light elements.
The 17 Goya Award nomination categories for Marshland include the Best - Film, Director (Alberto Rodríguez), Special Effects (Pedro Moreno and Juan Ventura), Cinematography (Álex Catalán), Editing (José M.G. Moyano), Art Direction (Pepe Domínguez), Production Supervision (Manuela Ocón), Original Screenplay, Sound, Original Score, Actors (Javier Gutiérrez and Raúl Aréval), Supporting Actors and Actresses (Antonio de la Torre and Mercedes León), New Actress (Nerea Barros), Costume Design and Make up and Hairstyles.
