Full post production on six-part drama series for BBC One.

Age Before Beauty follows an unconventional family manage life, love, adverse rivalries and their family business beauty salon. Utilising the fantastic photographic quality, senior Farm colourist Aidan Farrell graded the series using Digital Vision’s Nucoda to create and enhance the beautiful locations and enrich the design of the piece. The intention was to generate and retain a ‘real’ feel, in conjunction with heightening the beauty of the locations and characters. Fantasy and dream sequences appear throughout which provided Aidan with the opportunity to create various looks, playing a key part in adding mood, tone and texture. 

Online editor, Clyde Kellett completed the online using Avid DS Nitris.

Nigel Edwards mixed the 5.1 audio using Pro Tools Ultimate on an Avid S6. Great care was taken with the balance of effects and music to make sure the witty dialogue cut through.
