SGO has announced that Edit Studios has installed a Mistika post production system and Mistika Assist Station at its newly-refurbished post production facility in Tel Aviv. The boutique post house specialises in long-form film and broadcast editing for cinema and television, boasting sixteen large edit suites with their own balconies, including the stylish new Mistika finishing suite. Mistika will anchor the firm’s stunning new Digital Intermediate theatre with 2K real-time resolution and 4K rendering of documentary and feature film projects. Edit Studios selected the Mistika system for its flexibility and ease with which it can be integrated into the facility’s file-based workflow.

Founder of Edit Studios Sasha Franklin states, “Mistika has everything we need in one beautiful box. It is not only the best grading software I have ever encountered, but it is also an impressive finishing suite with a myriad of capabilities. Mistika seems to have taken the best features of various finishing suites and put them all together into one package, without any compromise in quality. It has versatility and allowed us to finish a feature-length documentary shot over several years on many different formats, within just one week, as well as a period drama, filmed using the latest RAW files – this kind of adaptability is essential for us in today’s market.” Sasha adds, “Gone are the days of just being required to only grade a project, as full production skills are now a prerequisite. Unlike other systems, Mistika has a fully integrated compositing and titling toolset that’s inbuilt for most of our SFX needs. For us, Mistika combined with the advent of DCPs, is a dream come true, allowing us to finish many of the projects here at base, whereas in the past, we would have had to send them to labs abroad.”

With over fifteen years of grading experience in both film and broadcast behind him, Edit Studios’ Chief Grader Yoav Raz says, “I am blown away by Mistika’s ability to deal with the toughest of shots on a daily basis. We also need Mistika to be able to work natively in Hebrew, working from right to left, and the team at SGO wrote a special version of the program to enable this within just a few days. Their support has been unbelievable – in over 15 years of working with various other systems, it is the first time I have seen Hebrew working in the way I wanted.”
