Full post production on 5 x 60 min culinary series for BBC 2. Chefs Tony Singh and Cyrus Todiwala are on a mission to convince Britain to wake up to the versatility of spices and exotic ingredients, using them not just on special occasions – but every day.

Sonny Sheridan graded the series in the Nucoda Film Master.

Tony and Cyrus have brought an array of spices to Britain, and Sonny’s brief was to emulate this within the grade. Brightness regions were used to emphasise the different palettes in the programme, and HLS to brighten the colour of the spices. Sheridan utilised grads, layers and the Nucoda’s tracking capabilities to bring the warmth and golden colour of the spices to Britain’s shores.

Andrew Godwin mixed the BBC 2 series in Pro Tools 10, whilst Tam Osman completed the online with Avid Symphony
