Cinnafilm Tachyon used on Oscar-Nominated Documentary Finding Vivian Maier

Published: January 30th 2015

We are proud to announce that Cinnafilm Tachyon has been used on Oscar-Nominated Documentary Finding Vivian Maier!

According to the film’s website, finding Vivian Maier is the critically acclaimed documentary about a mysterious nanny, who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that were hidden in storage lockers and, discovered decades later, is now among the 20th century’s greatest photographers. Directed by John Maloof and Charlie Siskel, Maier’s strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never before seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her.

Maier’s massive body of work would come to light when in 2007 her work was discovered at a local thrift auction house on Chicago’s Northwest Side. From there, it would eventually impact the world over and change the life of the man who championed her work and brought it to the public eye, John Maloof.

Cinnafilm is honored that it’s Tachyon software was selected for use on this film. The fantastic work was performed at Digital Film Central in Vancouver, BC.
