Full post on a 3x60 minute mini-series in which Paul Merton travels to America to explore the age of silent film.

Colin Peters, working with the DOP Mike Fox to achieve the result, used the Digital Vision Nucoda Film Master’s multi-layered FX tools to create a seamless look between pieces to camera, black and white archive footage and comedic constructions. Using the Sapphire plug-in, Peters re-created and enhanced the vintage ‘old movie style’ feel of the 1920’s in reconstruction footage.

Tom Holborow onlined and finished with Avid Symphony. Nick Cox used Pro Tools to mix the audio.
