Full post production on 2 x 60 min nature documentary for ITV. Survival expert and presenter Ray Mears returns to ITV following two of Australia’s most iconic animals, the Saltwater Crocodile and Tasmanian Devil. By studying these animals up close and in the wild, Mears gains a privileged insight into their unique habitats, in Australia’s Northern Territory and Tasmania’s wilderness.

Colourist Perry Gibbs graded the series with the Nucoda Film Master. With the great canvas of Australia’s Tasmania to work with, Gibbs exploited the Nucoda’s several blending modes to increase contrast and saturation, whilst maintaining detail, to allow the beauty of Australia’s wilderness to shine throughout the series.

Thomas Holborrow completed the online using Avid Symphony and Stewart Marshall mixed the audio with Pro Tools 10.
