We would like to be one of the first to congratulate Assimilate for their success at the Cannes Festival 2012. Although the winning films are yet to be announced, several films on the competition's roster have been created using SCRATCH, Assimilate’s digital workflow and post-production tools. SCRATCH has been used on recent screen successes like The Artist, Thor and Underworld: Awakening as well as the films nominated at Cannes 2012.
Among those nominated are SCRATCH artists from Cosmo Digital, Digital Cube, Onemore Pictures and Cinecolour Argentina. 14 films have been nominated for prizes including the short film Waiting for P.O. Box or Falastein, sandouk al intezar lil burtuqal by Syrian director Bassam Chekhes (snippet clip here) which has been shortlisted for the 2012 Short Film Palme d'or. Waiting for P.O. Box is one of the ten films selected out of 4,500 entries to be submitted for the coveted prize.
