A Hollywood Blockbuster Finished in Vancouver

KATJA DE BOCK | REEL WEST MAGAZINE | SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER, 2013 | Original Article

During the one and a half years of post-production on the science-fiction movie Elysium, Andrea Chlebak would sometimes wake up dreaming of droids in a dystopian futuristic landscape. Not because she was afraid of creatures. She was obsessed with making the droids look completely real. Chlebak is a film colourist and director of creative services at Digital Film Central (Central), a post-production facility in Vancouver’s Cambie Corridor and one of three hubs that finalized Neill Blomkamp’s second big Holywood feature.
The producers, Media Rights Capital and Sony Pictures opened an edit bay near Central. Image Engine, only a few blocks away, was responsible for thousands of visual effects (VFX), with help from other facilities including Method Studios, The Embassy and Moving Picture Company.
