Gradient Effects: So-Cal Studio Delivers Dynamic Visual Artistry For Feature Films And Expands Suite Into 5.1 Surround With Blue Sky Big Blue System –

By Diane Gershuny:

Located in Marina Del Rey, California, Gradient Effects has delivered dynamic visual artistry for feature films and other forms of entertainment since 2006, offering a complementary suite of services for CGI design, pre-production, on-set supervision, digital intermediate and post-production. Founders Thomas Tannenberger (Visual Effects Supervisor) and Olcun Tan (Visual Effects Supervisor/Head of R&D) lead a talented team of artists and developers committed to creating breakthrough visual effects quickly and economically.

Founders Tannenberger and Tan wanted to transform an unfinished room into a complete digital intermediate suite within the Gradient Effects facility. As part of this a complete Blue Sky Big Blue 5.1 monitoring system was installed in the studio. Specifically, this included three SAT 12s and one SUB 15 Universal. An additional four I/ON (in-wall/on-wall) passive studio monitors were installed in the sidewalls, serving as the surround channel monitors.

Having the Blue Sky 5.1 surround setup and technology, gives us a working environment that mimics the experience of the final end user, the consumer in a movie theater. Blue Sky’s bass-managed system allows us to playback mixed projects with full 5.1 fidelity so the directors or other creatives have not only a true theater picture, but true theater sound.”

— Tena Montoya, Director of Business Development for Gradient Effects
