SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- NanoTech Entertainment (OTCPINK: NTEK), a pioneer in bringing the 4K experience to consumers, announced today that Film Editor Harmy has joined the 4K Studios team. Harmy, creator of the internet sensation, "Star Wars Despecialized Edition," has a global following of film restoration and re-mastering work.
Alex "LX" Rudis, head of 4K Studios noted, "As someone who grew up part of the 'Star Wars' generation, I'm very excited to have Harmy joining the 4K Studios team. His 'Despecialized Edition Star Wars' has a remarkable aesthetic sense and fantastic attention to detail. When I first viewed his work on 'Star Wars,' I was emotionally transported back to the very first time I saw the film. I feel that Harmys' attention to subtle aspects of color grading and shadow detail will provide similar depths of emotional impact to the 4K restoration and master work that we provide for UltraFlix™. He's a great addition to our team and I'm very much looking forward to working with him."
Harmy is joining the 4K Studios team as they prepare to launch the new "re-mastered by 4K Studios" effort, where films that have been previously released in 4K will be re-mastered using second-generation tools and techniques that differentiate them from other offerings of the same film. Harmy stated "I've always been a big proponent of presenting movies in the best possible quality while maintaining their original artistic integrity. I am very excited to be joining the 4K Studios as part of the UltraFlix team. I'm really proud to be working on film restoration as a part of the team of people who the leaders in bringing the true cinematic experience to our living rooms using cutting-edge 4K streaming technology."
Rudis continued, "While you might find some of the same films that we offer on UltraFlix on other 4K services, the experience will be far superior on UltraFlix. Most providers just deliver to the consumer whatever they receive without putting any effort into ensuring the film has been treated with the best effort, providing the true cinematic experience"
Starting in February, UltraFlix viewers will start to see the "Re-Mastered by 4K Studios" Logo appearing on films that are updated through this program.
