Provide Picture Post Production on Left Bank Pictures new three-part drama series, The Replacement, for BBC One.

Shot on Alexa, Colourist Sonny Sheridan graded Left Bank Pictures’ new three-part drama, The Replacement, starring Morven Christie and Vicky McClure using Digital Visions’ Nucoda. Working and collaborating closely with Writer and Director Joe Ahearne and DoP Nick Dance, Sheridan graded the raw Alex Files to set an original high contrast, edgy visual identity for the chilling mini-series.

To accompany the psychological thriller storyline, Sheridan pushed every scene to it’s extreme to add an edge to the colourful appearance. Some scenes had a subtler contrast applied whilst others were more heightened reflecting the darker side of working women, motherhood and the issues that arise from making ‘the right choice’. Colour correction tool, Contrast and Saturation was utilised throughout and crucial attention to detail was required to optimise consistency.

To give weight to certain shots, Sheridan applied a vignette to draw the attention to certain characters.

Editor Owen Hulme completed online using Avid DS Nitris.
