JULES VERNE FLIES WITH FILMLOOK
MONTREAL--The multimillion dollar action adventure series "The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne" is the first high definition video-produced television series to use FILMLOOK for the downconverted version for domestic distribution.
"Jules Verne" is a series of fictional adventures of the legendary author and futurist who journeys around the world with his friend and mentor Philius Fogg. The series is produced in Montreal using hi-def 1080i cameras but downconverted after final postproduction to standard definition NTSC on Digital Beta. FILMLOOK processes the NTSC video version to give film texture and appearance for standard definition domestic release.
