Renowned production house announces WD as the “Digital Storage Partner”
WD®, a Western Digital company and digital storage leader, has entered in an association with Red Chillies Entertainments Pvt. Ltd., where the company has provided the production house with some of its key storage products. These products have been used by Red Chillies for the on-spot storage of shoot footage and in its studio for editing, post-production, and storing world-class special effects. WD is the ‘Digital Storage Partner’ for Red Chillies’ upcoming and much-awaited movie, ‘Happy New Year’. WD products will also be featured in the narrative of the movie.
“We are delighted to partner with Red Chillies. Our products provide high capacity, come with dependable safety features and cater to the intense workload requirements of a movie production house. WD ensured that the production team at ‘Happy New Year’ had access to reliable and blazing-fast storage devices to experience stress-free digital storage while making the movie,” said Subroto Das, WD Director – India & South Asia.
He added, “Movies are the heartbeat of the country and as the production house that gave us entertaining movies like Om Shanti Om and VFX-enabled movies such as Krrish 3, we look forward to experiencing the magic of ‘Happy New Year’ on the big screen. Being this movie’s Digital Storage Partner makes the experience even more exciting.”
“Modern movie-making techniques require storage solutions that provide capacity, durability, reliability and speed. While the camera used for shooting a movie is important, the device used to store the movie footage is also important. It is impossible to produce a visually appealing and technologically advanced movie if either of these factors is missing from the storage mix. We have used WD’s range of external and component drives for on-spot secure storage of the movie, and also to complete the post-production work and create breath-taking graphics. The spectacular results of this will be there for all to see once Happy New Year releases.” said Venky Mysore, CEO, Red Chillies Entertainments Pvt. Ltd.
