COLLABORATION & STRATEGY
Mizzen guided OFG’s vendor and equipment selection and engineered a system with robust design features to accommodate future expansion. Mizzen’s implementation team made several trips to Ohio to integrate and commission the solutions. In 2015, OFG became one of the nation’s first post-houses with the ability to deliver cinema-grade coloring, audio editing, VFX & animation services at 4k with both cinema and TV aspect ratios.
OFG’s fully-4k, 8k-ready facility consists of color, edit, graphics, and assist bays (with room for expansion), an audio mix room, a live room with a vocal booth, a Dolby-Atmos certified 4k screening theater, and a KVM infrastructure that allows cross-functionality at 4k resolution for each bay. On-site workflows can be tailored to a specific client’s production needs. Partnered with Sohonet, OFG delivers media files at an ultra-high bandwidth connection to locations all over the world.
OFG provides opportunities for students from CCAD and The Ohio State University to work at the studio in collaboration with OFG staffers through paid internships and post-graduate employment. Since opening, OFG has worked on feature films such as My Blind Brother, Aftermath, and The Life and Death of John Gotti.
