Cutting edge one-stop turn-key production

PRODUCTION

Golden Gate 3D’s award-winning production team has built a reputation for creating visionary film, TV, commercial, and digital content with a meticulous commitment to delivering quality on time and on budget. Our cutting edge technologies and methodologies allow us to shoot with a wide variety of highly specialized camera systems at the forefront of immersive (3D, IMAX, VR), ultra high-resolution (Ultra HD, 4K, 8K), and high dynamic range (HDR) image capture. Our strength comes from decades of combined innovation in a wide range of production situations from concept to delivery.

POST-PRODUCTION

Our full spectrum of post-production services range from editorial and color grading to 3D motion graphics and CGI VFX to audio and music mastering. We can also handle your archival and delivery needs, from 4K  conform to 4K DCP. Our mastering theater is equipped with 7.1 reference surround sound and a Sony 4K 3D DCI projector, enabling us to maintain the strictest quality control on our work, in both 2D and 3D, to ensure that your project can satisfy the most demanding viewers. We use a combination of cutting-edge systems to provide a complete 4K 3D solution throughout the entire workflow pipeline.

STEREOSCOPIC 3D

Our ultra high-resolution stereo 3D production and post-production workflow has been developed to create the most captivating, immersive experience for viewers and has resulted in award-winning work. We continually push the limits of resolution and framerates. Our 3D live-action rigs are capable of shooting HFR (High Frame Rate) at up to 6K 60 fps and 4K 120 fps, and our 3D time-lapse rigs can capture 3D at up to 8K resolution. Our post-production facilities can easily handle 4K and 8K 3D end-to-end workflows.

MOTION CONTROL TIME-LAPSE

Our 7K stereo 3D capable multi-axis motion-controlled time-lapse camera systems have helped pioneer what is possible in the world of time-lapse cinematography for large format 3D IMAX and giant screen films, commercial, and television projects throughout the world. We provide time-lapse capture services from robust heavy-duty 3D-beamsplitter motion-control time-lapse systems down to the most advanced lightweight 2D capture systems.

IMAX - GIANT SCREEN

Our pioneering work in large format for IMAX and Giant Screens around the world has met with awards and acclaim. Stereoscopic 3D production for the large screen format presents serious demands and intricate challenges. From the rainforests of Panama to the Old City in Jerusalem, our capabilities and versatility have enabled us to set up efficiently in challenging conditions and film material that meets the resolution demands of the latest IMAX films.

HDR - HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE

We use HDR capture to create stunning, vibrant, eye-popping imagery. The post-production required is extensive but the results are worth it. New HDR display formats are arriving soon which will further enhance the viewing experience of natively captured HDR footage.

VR - VIRTUAL REALITY

Golden Gate 3D has worked closely with VR pioneers to help develop and test new capture systems as well as create defining cinematic VR content experiences.
