Colour grading may be the last step of a movie production, nevertheless it is one of the most crusial element, as it directly impacts atmosphere and emotions.
Dark Tones vs. Light Tones
Colours have the potential to directly influence the viewer’s mood; a dark or black and white visual will have a very different impact, compare with a bright and full of intense colours image. Generally to produce a scene with mystery atmosphere, dark tones will be used, while bright and multicolours tones will expressed joy and happiness.
Relevant Colour Grading According to Media Publication
Proceeding to Advanced Colour Grading, we consider the final medium, where the movie will be played – For example, TV and Web streaming needs different frequencies and treatments for achieving the relevant colours result.
Contemporary Colour Approach
Based on colour wheel defining primary, secondary and tertiary colours, we develop strong combinations, choosing to follow or take distance with colour trends, to enhance the meaning and purpose of each film we make.
During the production, we shoot in RAW format, as it provides a wide range of possibilities to the colour grading process. RAW files is like “open” files, meaning it gives the power to control anything including colours, during the post-production. Doing so, we have the ability to change colours and tones, giving the final movie the desired atmosphere and feelings.
