HPA honors Sony Pictures Imageworks

Team will receive the organization's Judge's Award

A team from Sony Pictures Imageworks that developed the stereoscopic 3-D postproduction pipeline used to make "Beowulf" will be among the recipients of the Hollywood Post Alliance's Judge's Award for Creativity and Innovation in Post Production, which will be presented at the third annual HPA Awards, Nov. 6 at the Skirball Cultural Center.

Winners of the 2008 HPA Judges Awards include: Digital Film Tree, for developing a data-centric post network and workflow; CBS Paramount TV, for the use of the Digital Film Tree workflow on "Everybody Hates Chris"; and LaserPacific Media Corp., for accurateIMAGE, a color-calibrated motion-picture process that provides digital cinema quality dailies.

The Judge's Award rewards innovative thinking in the areas of new tools, workflows and ideas that enhance the postproduction process.
