For me, the worst part of making a film is finishing it.

It breaks my heart that the culmination of this creative process is something so dry as formatting and outputting a film to match festival technical specifications.

Particularly on low-budget projects where, more often than not, I will be wearing most of the production and post-production hats, it’s a real pain-in-the-ass to find that once the film is finished, my work isn’t done.

The DCP Master’s affordable service simplified the process for me. They advised me on colour, sound, and hard drives – as well as optimizing and outputting the film to the appropriate specs. My films now look their best from TIFF to Busan to Sundance, and everywhere in between.

And I didn’t have to do a thing.
