Catastrophe
Series 3

Avalon Television Channel 4 07.03.17

Provide full post production on the return of Avalon Television’s 6 x 30 min comedy drama series for Channel 4.

Colourist Sonny Sheridan graded the returning series using Digital Visions’ Nucoda. Working closely with Director Ben Taylor, Sheridan continued to create the warm, intimate atmospheres, as well as pushing the boundaries for the desired filmic and glossy appearance.

Many layers were applied to give depth to the shots and within each layer various Nucoda tools including; Balance, HCurvs, Hue and Luminance and Contrast and Saturation, were applied to emphasise a mood or atmosphere to accompany the storyline. HLS was applied to twist tones to create a bold, visual feast making London a character it itself.

Dubbing Mixers Tom Corbett and Jules Woods mixed the audio using Pro Tools HDX version 12, on the new Avid S6 console. The biggest challenge faced in the mix was to maintain a sense of London atmosphere and keep authenticity throughout the series, without distracting the viewer from the dialogue. To achieve this, various altiverb reverbs were applied and sparse atmospheric effects were used to depict London’s lively atmosphere.

Barney Jordan completed the online in Avid DS.

Post produced by Chris Evans.
