Yes, we'll be looking to employ a new EFX firm, probably in the Vancouver area.

We've already discussed shooting it in wide, and *editing* in wide (rather than
4:3 as we did on the B5 series) and then *compositing and creating cgi* in
wide, so that however it gets initially shown, it'll exist from the git-go in a
true wide version.
