HD picture post-production on Carnival Films’ returning eight-part drama series for Sky One.
The returning series was shot on the Arri Alexa camera. Colourist Aidan Farrell used the ProRes 444 log C rushes to grade the series using Digital Visions Nucoda to accomplish dynamic, powerful colours and textures to fulfill the desired, highly stylised cinematic look. In addition, numerous sapphire plugins were used to distinguish the mood and tone of the series which follows a modern storyline of tales of love, marriage, affairs and death as the new settlers arrive in America.
In order to retain and compliment the true tone and colour of the 17th Century setting, attention to detail of the costumes, hair and make-up and set design was paramount in order to fully immerse the viewer within the atmosphere of the period drama.
Clyde Kellett completed the online and FX using Avid DS Nitris.
