With the addition of the digital cinema tools, Final Frame Post is now offering services to cover the complete process of digital intermediate conforming & grading in 4:2:2 or 4:4:4, advanced image correction, dust busting and grain management all the way to the creation of a DCP digital cinema package. 
“Our key goal is to help studios, independent filmmakers, and television producers realize their vision,” comments Will Cox, co-founder of Final Frame.  “Providing DCP services was a logical next step for us, and enables us to provide our customers with a complete solution of editing, DI, digital cinema playback and viewing as well as DC packaging to create the final digital distribution files for delivery to theatres, festivals or screening rooms.  We selected the Dolby DCP platform because of their long history of technical innovations and proven track record of delivering high quality solutions and support.”
“Final Frame’s new DCP service offering using the Dolby SCC2000 and DSS200 is a first for New York City, said Tom Kodros, Manager Production Services, Dolby Laboratories.  “There are clear advantages to our digital cinema technology, and we are confident that Final Frame’s new DCP services, their experienced team and commitment to quality will serve the needs of their clients.”
Final Frame recently provided DCP services for Todd Solondz's latest movie “Life During Wartime,” which took the Venice International Film Festival by storm, winning best screenplay.  “Life During Wartime” also appeared as part of the Special Presentation category at the Toronto International Film Festival.
