Legend Films, a well-known name in restoration and colourisation of films specifically Hollywood movies, has now set its sights on Bollywood by announcing plans to create a special design and production division in India.
Legend Films now looks forward to work closely with Indian film producers, directors and distributors, and has appointed Manu Savani of Gala Entertainment Corp as their exclusive representative for India.
Dr. Barry B Sandrew, President Legend Films, said, "Legend is now gearing up to provide a fast and efficient service to restore and colourise many Indian films that comprise the Indian film heritage in the same manner as our current service to the Hollywood film industry. With the production and design studio located in India it will help the film producers to get their work done to their best satisfaction."
Executing much of their design and technical work through their already existing studio in India, Legend Films uses its proprietary 48-bit technology allowing for colourisation of films in HD or film resolution and will make it convenient for Indian film producers and distributors to get easy access to their work.
Manu Savani, President, Gala Entertainment Corp, said, "We at Gala Entertainment are very thrilled that we have been appointed by Legend Films as their exclusive representative for India. Colourisation should have come to India few years back but it is never too late. Colourisation will open up new horizons for the films, which have been lying in vaults for decades. This will therefore bring better revenue from DVD, satellite, TV and other ancillary markets."
