Bits & Pieces Footage.net offering over two million clips Nice Shoes teams with Red Car for remote grading N EW YORK — Nice Shoes, here, has partnered with Red Car Dallas (pictured) to offer remote color grading. Dallas area clients now have the opportunity to get the same experience they would get coming to the New York studio without having to leave the city. The initiative marks Nice Shoes' second remote partnership, following a successful two-year relationship with Engine Room Edit in Boston. The set-up uses a secure HD feed and a display calibrated by Nice Shoes engineers. "Nice Shoes has had clients all over the country for years," notes managing director Kristen Martini, "but travelling to New York isn't always an option, so we're excited to offer the high-quality color grading they've come to expect through an equally high-quality set-up at a partner like Red Car Dallas." "Nice Shoes colorists are a great addition to our offering at Red Car Dallas," says Red Car Dallas managing director Carrie Callaway. "Our clients are extremely busy and they love the option to not have to travel and still get the best color for their projects." Clients who work with Red Car Dallas editors Chris Gipson, Keith James and Patrick Hammond are now able to work with Nice Shoes colorists Chris Ryan, Lez Rudge, Lenny Mastrandrea, Ron Sudul and Gene Gurley. Hammond, in fact, recently completed one of the first sessions by the two studios, working with Sudul for agency Dieste.
