COLUMBIA, Md., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Paradise24P, a Maryland based Commercial and Motion Picture Production Company, is proud to announce the grand opening of their state of the art facility, located strategically in Columbia, MD between the Baltimore and Washington markets. Situated in a relaxed campus setting; Advertising Agencies, Producers and Directors can avoid the often hectic and stressful environment of production facilities located in the gridlock of the city and get those "creative juices flowing" within a tranquil setting, yet they can reach Paradise24P within minutes of each municipality. Of significant note, is Paradise's use of 24P technology, to photograph and edit commercials and motion pictures in this revolutionary digital 24 frame video format. Although 24P was initially unacceptable in Hollywood, now that filmmakers such as George Lucas have utilized 24P in the production of both Star Wars Episodes II and III, the format is beginning to find almost universal acceptance.
The Paradise24P production team (because of their in-house creative staff), are able to offer an entire array of services and equipment involved in producing content for their existing clients. They also often bypass the Agency process to write, produce and direct commercials for clientele away from the traditionally expensive environment of the Agency model, yet they also offer the facility as the perfect boutique for the Agency producer demanding a high quality HD/35mm facility under one roof. Because Paradise24P is a relatively small facility, their production budgets are extremely competitive compared to larger facilities with large staffs and huge overhead. The highlight of the Paradise24P facility is the AVID DS/Nitris HDCAM/24P edit suite. This bleeding edge technology is capable of editing 35mm film, 24P/HDCAM and outputs content in virtually every HD/SD format. The Symphony suite is utilized for 24P/HD Offline and SD Online projects with a short shelf-life. To round-out the facility in Audio Post Production, Barnaby Bristol, heads-up the ProToolsHD Digital Audio suite capable of recording, mixing and layback in any format.
The Principals include Sy Pilz, DGA; who has an impressive list of over 1,500 film and commercial credits to his resume including national clientele such as Miller Brewing Company, GEICO, Citgo, Circuit City, US Airways, and Chevrolet ... to name a few.
