Hula Post Production Provides Editing Facilities for Thrilling Drama “Captive”

Hula Post recently provided editorial systems, facilities and support to editor Melissa Kent for her work on Captive, Paramount Pictures’ new thrilling drama. Kent spent six months cutting the film at Hula’s Burbank facility, followed by an additional two weeks on Paramount Pictures lot in Hollywood. Hula provided Avid workstations and storage at both sites.

Directed by Jerry Jameson (Last Flight Out) and starring David Oyelowo (Selma) and Kate Mara (House of Cards), Captive centers on Brian Nichols who captured national attention in 2005 when he broke out of a Georgia courthouse after killing a judge and three other people. He subsequently took Ashley Smith, a single mother, hostage and held her for several hours before surrendering to authorities.

The movie tells the story with gripping realism. The first minutes of the film, when Nichols makes his escape, features intense action with almost no dialogue. Much of the balance of the film occurs in Smith’s small apartment where the ratcheting anxiety is heightened by the flowing camerawork of cinematographer Luis David Sansans.

Kent enhances the dramatic tension with an editorial approach that is deliberate, but understated. “My job is to be responsive to the actors, and David Oyelowo and Kate Mara are amazing,” she observes. “Although playing a killer, David brought a deep humanity to Brian Nichols, and Kate was wonderfully subtle and expressive.”

“The film is very dynamic in the way it was shot; the camerawork is completely hand-held and constantly in motion,” Kent adds. “Once Brian takes Ashley hostage in her apartment, the camerawork heightened the frenetic energy of Brian, and contrasted well with the stillness of Ashley.”

Kent notes that the support she received from Hula Post freed her from technology concerns and allowed her to focus on storytelling. “Hula bends over backwards to make the environment very pleasant and conducive to creativity,” she says.

Kent, who reviewed historical records including the 9-1-1 call from the incident as part of her preparation, notes that the real-life events were always on her mind. “It’s an intense story and makes for an exciting, compelling movie,” she says, “and is all the more powerful and tragic because it is true.”


Hula Post Production Teams with Editor Craig Alpert for Universal Pictures and Gold Circle Entertainment’s “Pitch Perfect 2”

Hula Post Production provided editorial systems and support to editor Craig Alpert and his crew for Pitch Perfect 2, the blockbuster new musical comedy from Universal Pictures, currently in theaters. Hula set up Avid workflows in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where the movie was shot, and in Los Angeles where post production was completed.


Alpert says that he was excited to work on the film, the follow-up to the 2012 box-office hit, both because it represented a change of pace from his previous assignments, which include such hit comedies as Pineapple Express, Knocked Up and Borat, and because of the opportunity to work with actress/producer Elizabeth Banks, who makes her feature film debut.

“It’s a different kind of comedy with great musical performances,” Alpert, who previously worked with Hula on Ride Along, The Campaign and Yes Man, notes. “I loved Pitch Perfect and the new film features bigger performances and more songs. It takes everything to the next level.”

In Baton Rouge, Hula Post set up an editorial workflow consisting of three Avid workstations, a software-only assist system and shared storage. Alpert and his crew began cutting as soon as shooting commenced. “I showed Elizabeth what I cut at the end of each week,” he recalls. “That helped her in terms of knowing what more she needed to get. By the time production wrapped, she had already seen 85 percent of the movie.”

Hula Post Keeps “Madam Secretary” in Sync

Hula Post is among the largest renters of editorial systems and related gear in Southern California. Along with more than a dozen returning scripted and non-scripted television series, Hula is servicing three series premiering this fall: CSI: Cyber, Madam Secretary and The Messengers, all for CBS.

Madam Secretary is one of several shows taking advantage of StorageDNA Sync, a media synchronization engine available through Hula. Where other file transfer services require the sending party to upload files to a server and then for those files to be manually “pulled” back down by the recipient; DNA Sync is point-to-point. For example, a production in New York can transfer files at accelerated speeds, directly to hard drives or shared storage at the post production facility in Los Angeles. That, in fact, is precisely the workflow employed by Madam Secretary.

madam-secretary-tea-leoni-ftrMadam Secretary’s production team in Los Angeles wanted to avoid having to wake early in the morning to initiate a download of dailies processed overnight in New York. DNA Sync eliminates that extra step. When the assistant editor in L.A. arrives for work in the morning, dailies from the day before are ready and available for use. It’s one less step that saves some time and allows the team to focus on the creative work, not the tech. Plus, they get to enjoy the benefits of a good night’s sleep.
