Atomos Official Provider for On-board Monitoring and Recording at the Sundance Film Festival 2023
Workflow for thirteen production crews included ATOMOS CONNECT module with cloud connectivity and Adobe Camera-to-Cloud powered by Frame.io
Melbourne, Australia – 3rd February 2023 – Atomos Official Provider for On-board Monitoring and Recording. The Sundance Film Festival, which took place January 19–29 in person and online, was supported by Atomos with on-board monitoring and recording using the Ninja V and ATOMOS CONNECT for the Festival Daily Recap and videos distributed in theatres and across its social media channels.
Capturing special Festival moments that play at screening venues and social channels the next morning is a complex task that required 13 camera crews, each with a producer and camera operator. All the crews used a combination of wired connectivity where available, and Wi-Fi over a bonded cellular network. Atomos equipment was used with Adobe’s Camera-to-Cloud (C2C) workflow, powered by Frame.io, which created efficiencies in the post-production process, allowing for edits to commence earlier than at previous festivals.
“Being entrusted by Sundance to make sure that all the content for the in-house productions for the film festival was captured, distributed and shared is a great honor,” said Trevor Elbourne, CEO of Atomos. “We’re excited that they are adopting a Camera-to-Cloud workflow and we’re confident that they will save time and money as a result.”
Sclera Digital, a cinema equipment rental company based in Los Angeles and an Atomos partner, provided five Peplink bonded dual-band 11ac Wi-Fi systems with two embedded LTE modems.
Canon, also an Atomos partner and the exclusive provider of cameras for the Sundance Film Festival, supported the event with a combination of EOS R6 mirrorless DSLR cameras, EOS C200 digital cinema cameras, and EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR cameras.
“It was a great 11 days in Park City,” added Elbourne. “It was an excellent example of cloud-based, collaborative workflows finding their place in production. It validates our strategy of using online services to augment the capabilities of our products in the field to empower filmmakers with more creative tools.”
