EC3 Location Services combines the creative and technical expertise of two of the industry’s most respected post production houses – EFILM and Company 3 – to provide a remote/location services offering unparalleled anywhere in the industry. My task was to develop their branding. I took inspiration from the actual EFILM and Company 3 logos, from location icons as well as from a filmstrip.

X-Men Dailies Colorist Adrian DeLude discusses on-location with EC3
Throughout the production of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel, ASC was able to bring an exceptional amount of his intended “look” to the dailies, which enabled director Bryan Singer and all the department heads to see a representation of what the final images could look like while shooting was ongoing. Production captured in ARRIRAW with three, 3D rigs comprised of ALEXA Ms and ALEXA XTs for 2D work. Dailies work for X-MEN was all done out of a completely mobile grading theater provided by EC3 – the dailies services unit which combines the resources of Deluxe’s Company 3 and EFILM.
Street Side is set up to handle any camera type and provide beautifully crafted dailies beyond basic LUTs to Best Light color, regardless of camera type, shortly after the director yells cut. If editorial is onset, we have the capability to provide ‘dailies’ directly to their desktop throughout the day. Street Side provides a truly mobile experience with the ability to unplug and roll out in minutes.
