Insomnia Studios was established in 2015, partially due to the demand for a facility and a network that could compete in the international market of film and TV post production. We have been in partnership with Post City since 2016, and have addressed a wide variety of post-production demands, that cater for the international Market, as well as some local high end productions. Since Cape Town has become a major film location for international features, it was observed, that most of the post-production work would still leave the country, to be serviced by various overseas facilities and professionals. We have brought a group of highly skilled and internationally acclaimed professionals together, to form a team that can compete with international teams and facilities. We focus on the entire spectrum of filmmaking including pre and post production, on set, producing, directing, data management, and workflow management. In the post production department, we have work flow supervisors, facility managers, offline and online editors in our team, as well as colorists, animators, VFX artists, conceptual artists and storyboard artists.
We take great pride in the fact, that production quality, and client satisfaction is our main priority. We aim to deliver all our projects on time, and within budget, aiming to communicate effectively in the stormy landscape, of film post production. We have a very effective online workflow management system, that can track the progress of all aspects of the workflow effectively, and accurately, in order to give credible feedback to the customer in terms of progress, milestones, and many more deliverables, on an ongoing basis.
