The south of Spain has its own post-production studio, AntÃpodas Film Lab, the first of its kind in the region. Based in Seville, the ultramodern facilities are co-founded by a group of post-production experts made up of JosÃ© MG Moyano (âMarshlandâ, âUnit 7â), Juan Ventura PecellÃn (âMarshland,â âJuan of the deadâ), JosÃ© Manuel Rocha (“Tamara and the Ladybug”, “The Plague”), Manuel TerceÃ±o (“Swamp”, “Parking”), Amparo MartÃnez (“The Head”, “Yo, mi mujer y mi mujer muerta”) and DarÃo GarcÃa GarcÃa (âThe Plagueâ, âThe Challenge: ETAâ).
Although the studio is based in Spain and most of their work is likely to be done on Spanish productions, their ambitions certainly seem to go far beyond the Iberian Peninsula. In fact, the AntÃpodas website is published in English, inviting companies around the world to use the facilities and staff working there and emphasizing connectivity, including an internal 100gbe / 40gbe network and a line of dedicated fiber.
AntÃpodas Film Lab facilities have three fully equipped editing rooms, Dolby Vision HDR calibration room, 2K viewing room, VFX room, digital lab services, DIT and creative quality live station and LTO.
