Avengers: Age of Ultron

Refinery facilitated and hosted the data lab during the Johannesburg leg of the shoot for Avengers: Age of Ultron, starring too many A-listers to mention.

We provided a base and pipelines for the very intense multi-camera ARRIRAW workflow. Refinery was the home base for the VFX team. Our Eugen Olsen worked on set along side the N-cam VFX set supervision team. Izaam Patterson was a data wrangler for the VFX supervision team.

We underwent an intensive security audit by Marvel / Disney for the protection of their IP. This audit has enabled us to adopt these processes and protocols for all our productions.

This epic film is now on the big screens, so we can now very proudly say out loud, “We worked on that!”

Shark Killer

Refinery produced the opening title sequence on Shark Killer, shot in South Africa for Canada’s Blue Ice Films.

According to IMDB, “The services of shark killer Ace Hunter have been engaged by his brother Jake, the head of a West Coast crime ring.

“The gig: kill the black-finned shark that swallowed a valuable diamond during a gang transaction. Enlisted to keep an eye on Ace is Jake’s girlfriend, Jasmine.

“But Ace and Jasmine’s relationship deepens with the threats from a rival crime boss: bring the diamond to him or die. Soon, loyalties will shift, and Ace will learn that trusting in blood is for suckers.

“Now, it’s crime boss against crime boss, brother against brother, and man against nature, as Ace strives to rescue Jasmine, save his own life, and track down the great black-finned shark that will be the greatest challenge of his career.”

DIAS SANTANA

Refinery handled the post production on the action cop drama Dias Santana, shot in Cape Town and Luanda with Zen HQ and Giant Sables Media Entertainment.

According to the ZenHQ Facebook page, “The only thing top cop Dias Santana and his brother Matias have in common is avenging the murder of their parents that ripped the Santana family apart thirty years ago. With their own lives on the edge, Dias and Matias learn that blood is thicker than water, and revenge is easier said than done.”
