Reliance MediaWorks bags ‘Best Laboratory of the Year’ Award for ‘Mandrake Mandrake’

MUMBAI: The field of technology for visual enhancement of filmed content is rapidly evolving in India. A company that is constantly innovating itself and working towards an enhanced cinema viewing experience is Reliance MediaWorks – the media and techno-creative solutions provider and a part of the Reliance Group.


Adding to its kitty of numerous awards and accolades is the recently achieved ‘Best Laboratory Award’ in the cinematography category for the film Mandrake! Mandrake!


Produced by the National Film and TV Institute of India, the diploma film is the story of a young man, who transforms a rundown warehouse into an Aladdin’s cave through the fun and frolic of the moving image, where magic, mystery and adventure become possible. Reliance MediaWorks is solely responsible for the processing of this film.


Reliance MediaWorks handled the colour correction, processing and printing of the entire film. Reliance MediaWorks CEO Venkatesh Roddam said, “Awards and recognition always feel good, because it is a validation of the commitment to the industry and hard work at Reliance MediaWorks.”


Added Reliance MediaWorks president, post production services Krishna Shetty, “Among other honours, a national award feels even more special since it is the highest honour instituted by the government of India and thus, yes winning this award for the lab makes me really happy. That we have been winning this award several times over the last few years, is again a reinforcement of the quality, commitment and difference that we at Reliance MediaWorks make to the process of filmmaking through our consistent efforts. Yes it is the 16th award, and the third one in a row now. In the past as well, we have won this award for successive years, once for six years in a row.”


The company that recently completed 400 films has revolutionised the way films are processed in India and has worked with production houses such as Dharma Productions, Yashraj Films, Balaji Motion Pictures, Red Chillies Entertainment, Disney and Sony Pictures amongst others. Its consistent effort has helped reduce the cost of films and increases the speed of overall production.
