Biography

The cinema is my passion…

I love telling stories on a larger scale! Film mainly has to entertain and should not simply be “art”. I’ve done lots of different things along the way but now concentrate on creative, solid editing and international feature-length projects.

Digital Cinema Mastering – On location in Berlin or via online transfer

Please get in touch for a price estimate. Costs depend on length, specs and services needed.

DCP has been the international digital cinema standard since 2002. This is what cinemas usually show and it needs to be perfect to fulfil the high standards and strict guidelines. Many believe it's easy to create DCPs yourself but the fact is, many cinema servers are old and outdated. Cinema equipment in expensive and not everyone invests in software updates. This is were I come in: I offer professional and high-quality DCP-Mastering and have the experience to guarantee 100% playability worldwide – I will stick to the conservative IOP specs as much as possible (depending on your needs and wishes).

I provide special pricing solutions for independent and student productions as well as short content like ads.
Don't hesitate to get in touch and ask if anything is unclear. Looking forward to mastering your movie!

Basic services include:

  • Conforming to worldwide DCI-interOP specs (2K or 4K, 5.1 or 7.1 Surround)
  • Frame rate conversion to 24p (IOP safe) and resizing to scope or flat
  • Optional DLP XML subtitles (soft) made from subtitle files like SRT/STL/SSA/...
  • Or subtitles burned-in (hardcoded) following universal formatting standards
  • Color and gamma space conversion for DCI P3 standard to match your source master
  • Unencrypted only for best compatibility and instant access
  • DCP-Masters on HDD (CRU optional) in 100% compatible Linux ext2 format
  • DCP will be thoroughly tested and validated to ensure compliance

Show additional Information and Extras

From Beginner to Winner: Become a DCP-Professional (Resolve 15 Workshop):

I teach DCP-creation (Win/Mac) with all aspects of the audio-visual mastering process, including subtitling, transfer (linux cloning) and QC. You can book me for group or individual (online) tutoring in German and English or purchase one of my workshops: Davinci Resolve 15 (even in "lite") added the best free way for DCP encoding (Kakadu J2K) but it's a lot more complicated than that with many potential issues. The crucial work takes place before and after encoding.

Digital cinema has been around since 2002 and gains more importance by the day due to movie making and festival screenings more ubiquitous. My goal is to teach you how to deliver fully DCI-compliant DCPs with 100% playback compatibility guaranteed – while also making sure it looks and sounds as intended! I will get you to a level to offer DCP-mastering yourself and take care of all your cinema/festival delivery needs.

Please get in touch for a price estimate. Costs depend on length, group size and tutoring needed.

    Unfortunately, 5 * is not enough to rate SLFilm. I have worked on many projects with the very human and masterful Sebastian Leitner for over a decade. If you gave me a choice between JJ Abrams or Sebastian Leitner... OK I would still choose JJ, but JJ Abrams would not have anywhere near the kind of good humour that Leitner does and nor would he have that special sense of timing, especially when marrying moving images to moving music. If you want JJ Abrams quality, but at a much more affordable rate than the Hollywood Heavyweight, and less busy since JJ is working on Star Wars IX, then give SLFilm a call NOW! You won't be disappointed- for at least a decade. Google- it's time to add the 6*star rating for such cases!

    Sebastian handled a very short-noticed request quickly and exactly the way I wanted it. He understood the purpose of my video and it was a real pleasure to work with him!

    You know what you need, when your project is in midair and heading down towards desaster? A nice cool bucket of GinTonic. Or Sebastian Leitner. From saturdays "I will never movie anything again" to sundays "i love my job more than anything else". Thank you Sebastian.

    Quick, super professional and helpful in every way. Sebastian saved our project last minute. His understanding of both the technical, as well as the artistic and economical aspects are invaluable.

    Sebastian knows deeply the business to connect the world of music with the world of video/film. His understanding of both: art and technologie is a great combination to realise ideas, to create something new and extraordinary.

    We worked with SLfilm on Noseland and on some music videos for Trio KlaViS. For a couple of years already, working on projects, he still amazes everyone with his superhero speed, great attention to detail and unique flexibility. I think Sebastian's mind works about 5 times faster than anyone elses, and he appears to never sleep. There he is: 1.Innovative and creative ideas bursting out 2. Ease in talking to and sharing ideas 3. Amazing speed 4. Great knowledge 5. The curiosity in everything that exists that he always keeps fresh Always looking forward to seeing more from SLfilm!

    We have worked with Sebastian Leitner since November. He filmed and edited our new show for a DVD, a showreel and youtube clips. His work is excellent, I cannot recommend him highly enough! He does a wonderful job. very quick and professional. He already has a lot of experience working with artists, especially in the "Music and Comedy" field. He has helped us update our image and become more active in the internet, with Web Page, Facebook, youtube etc. I recommend him to anyone who needs a project/show being filmed and edited. He has amazing energy and is always very enthusiastic about his work, which is refreshing! So Go SLfilm, you rock! x Rebecca Carrington, from Carrington-Brown (Music and Comedy Act)
