Facilities such as France's Miroslav Pilon Studio, which posts the animated TV series Rabbids Invasion (pictured), work hard to keep sounds very real, with ambience rich in detail, Foley, hard effects, and reality-based sound design. On page 30, read more about Rabbids Invasion and other animated projects, including How to Train Your Drag- on 2, Rick and Morty and Disney's The Pirate Fairy, all of which rely on realistic sound to entertain audiences. 2 EDITOR'S LETTER New additions and initiatives By Marc Loftus 2 POST SCRIPT 4K in full gear By Linda Romanello 4 BITS & PIECES What's new in post pr oduction 12 DIRECTOR'S CHAIR Wally Pfister: Transcendence By Iain Blair 14 OPEN HOUSE Super Star Power Productions 16 PRIMETIME Refuge VFX brings Grimm's creatures to life By Linda Romanello 39 POSTINGS A graphic glimpse of some r ecent work 40 NEW MEDIA Reel FX extends services into apps 42 PRODUCTS The latest in hardware & software 44 PEOPLE Keeping tabs of the industry's movers & shakers 47 REVIEW Atomos' Ninja Blade 48 REVIEW Apple's Mac Pro B U S I N E S S 18 TRAINING These online and in-person offerings help teach technology and the art of storytelling.
