Pascal Dangin & Box Studios

Does/has anybody here worked for Box Studios or ever been to Box Studios? I am curious as to what it's like behind the curtain. What exactly is the wizard up to?

I'm pretty sure I've read every article about Dangin/Box (The New Yorker, Times etc) but basically I wanted to start a thread to discuss the process of projects in the high-end world and hopefully discuss/expound upon retouching techniques.

Man does Box really have this kind of secrecy that no one can/will talk about them?

It's a "black art", magician's code not to be released to the inquisitive public. Unless the curtain is ripped, torn down or whisked away, no one has a clue what's going on behind the scene, other than the studio staff.

who cares? they're good retouchers, doing the same work every other highend agency who employs good retouchers does. I know a few ppl who worked there, trust me, get over it.

They seem to get the lion's share of high-end work here, but it's because they're good.

I work with a woman who trained under Pascal, and she's pretty excellent.

Re: Pascal Dangin & Box Studios

@KR1156 - 'who cares, get over it' - I know I get it, but I'm just saying... if there was ever any light shed as to how they do a lot of their work behind the scenes type stuff then it would be easy to get over. The same goes with any 'high end' retouching studio. There's never much explanation amongst this 'dark art'.

@eraanexact - What does your friend have to say about Pascal and how he does things?

Re: Pascal Dangin & Box Studios

DOnt be like the japanese and jsut copy what everyone else does, but do it cheaper. hahah bottom line is this and there are so many comparisons you could make... He is just a guy, liek anyone else, using the same computers as most of us, with the same software. he just does it better. Same reason that Michael Schumacher would dog you in a race even in a yugo, or that Paula Dean would make a better grilled cheese sandwich than you could or that Michael Jackson could moonwalk better than anybody else. You can look under the hood, but thats not all of it.

Another example if this helps, look at it like this, all any of them are doing is altering the luminance of pixels. You have a set number of them, and you can go from the darkest to absolute brightest and anywhere in between....now hop to it. Thing is he just knows which ones to change a little bit better than others do
