topic icon 2K Cinema DCP for Silent Enemy by Black Sun

We have been working with Ecuador’s most prominent metal band Black Sun to bring the 21min film that accompanies their new EP to the Digital Cinema Screen.

In July we completed the authoring for a new Blu-ray for Ecuador’s most prominent metal band Black Sun, and on September 4th, Black sun released their new EP, Silent Enemy. The EP was shipped with a musical short film also named Silent Enemy on Blu-ray developed by director and writer Gustavo Arguello alongside Black Sun, paving the way for experimentation and rediscovery of the “musical film” concept.

The film was supplied as a 4K video master, which we used to convert the film into a 2K DCP file, which is the format required for projection through digital cinema projectors. The master was returned digitally and the screening took place on the 25th November.
