Goldcrest offers world-class picture finishing with top creative talent working with industry leading technology and infrastructure. Our team is your creative and technical partner whenever needed throughout the entire process, from pre-production though delivery. Prior to shooting we are there to discuss all aspects of your work flow and test the aesthetic impact of various technical choices, including camera, lenses, unusual lighting setups, HDR, filtration, and more. We also work with cinematographers and directors to build LUTs for use with dailies and in-camera. When it’s time to color grade the final, we work with directors, cinematographers and producers in one of our state-of-the-art Grading Theaters or 4K / HDR suites to find the unique look of each individual film.
Goldcrest works with best-in-class technology to guarantee that the creative side flows easily and is never held back by the technical. We can work with the full range of available of formats from SD to 8K and have our own in-house ARRI scanner for 35 and 16mm film (scans up to 6K). We employ the fastest available DaVinci Resolve Advanced Linux systems working across blazing fast shared storage and enabling extremely efficient multi-user collaboration. Our team has been on the forefront of many new technologies and can help plan workflows from the tried and true to the leading edge or unusual.
Goldcrest possesses an array of talented re-recording mixers, as well as sound designers, who are highly equipped to create the perfect soundtrack for any project. Our four sound theatres are cutting edge, with an emphasis on experience coupled with the ease of mind of having the best technology available. We work closely with directors, producers, and post supervisors to orchestrate the sound design for their film, television, and streaming projects. Located on our main floor are our two largest 7.1 Mix Theaters; Theater Q and Theater A. Theater Q features two Avid S6 consoles, a 2K NEC NC800C Xenon Bulb projector and monitoring is through Meyers Studio Sound Speakers. Studio A boasts a trusty Avid ICON console.

Gender diversity is a shell that hasn’t been cracked enough in Hollywood.
Women have been disproportionately under recognized in the entertainment industry, with few women in director, cinematographer, and other leadership roles. Goldcrest Post had a chance to chat with Michelle Cameron, a producer for the film NANCY, and gain insight on how their team combated this trend.
A few Goldcrest Projects have been honored at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Congratulations to the filmmakers for all of their hard work!
