The Raven On The Jetty Vlog 25: Colour Grading

In this Vlog, Erik Knudsen and Mark Duggan explain the process of colour grading for The Raven On The Jetty; this is one of the final stages in the post-production process that involves balancing all the colours and exposures of the shots and selecting an overall visual pallet for the film.

By giving a few examples, they discuss the importance of colour grading the images, the kind of issues that influence how the colour grading is done and what effect they hope it will have on the final film. Following an initial grade of the film on a computer monitor, the film is then tested on a variety of monitors and in a cinema before final adjustments are made and the picture is completely locked off and completed. Only the sound dub and the editing of a trailer will follow.
