colour grading

The colour grade is an essential component of any piece of film. It can influence the tone, emotional impact and storytelling of your film.

Quality, clarity and detail are key to our style and principles of how we colour grade.

Our colourists are experienced and versatile, they are adeptly able to interpret a client brief, and use their experience to add value to achieve the optimum look and feel for the moving image footage.

DaVinci Resolve

We have recently upgraded our Da Vinci Resolve non-linear grading system.

The extremely powerful configuration has the capability to grade several layers of 4K Red footage in real time. We can work with all the major camera formats; Arri, Phantom, Red, C300-500-700, BMCC, 1D, 5D etc. and unlike other facilities we grade directly from the raw files meaning your images don’t lose any quality in transfer and will always have the utmost clarity and detail.

We are fully networked between our suites meaning we can grade in one suite whilst the on-line is being undertaken in another suite feeding through in stages. This makes for a speedier and more efficient way of completing the post-production process as everything can be done in one place, whilst still maintaining the highest of standards.

Power of the Grade

The desired look was fresh, punchy and appetising! One of the key focuses was to separate each ingredient to ensure they looked as good as possible.

Primary Grade – White balancing, exposure balancing, adding saturation and contrast to help bring the shot out from its raw state.

Secondary Grade – Curve grades were applied to help separate the reds, yellows and greens. Also removing any unwanted saturation in the background.

Masks – Drawing masks and colour-selecting each ingredient meant that it was much easier to manipulate the shot. The mayo was desaturated to look cleaner, the lettuce had green replace yellow hues, the cheese pushed more towards yellow to get that “American Slice” and the pickled onions had magenta injected in to separate it from the pulled pork.

Final Pass – With everything where it needed to be, the final tinkerings of the shot to help it along were added. Such as a window around the dripping sauce as this we where the viewer should be looking. Film grain was added and the bun was knocked back to allow focus on the insides.

All of these little details added together help the product look amazing and will add serious production value to your campaign.
