Unspeakable

Story Films Channel 4 08.11.17

Picture post-production on 1 x 60 minute one-off drama for Channel 4.

Unspeakable, stars Indira Varma as a mother who receives a disturbing text message from an unknown sender alleging an inappropriate relationship between her new boyfriend and her 11-year-old daughter.  Over a weekend her doubts and suspicions begin to grow, until she's no longer sure of the man she’s living with and what’s he’s capable of.

Colourist, Sonny Sheridan graded the one-off drama using Digital Visions Nucoda to apply layers and vignettes giving the scenes weight and depth, reflecting the mother’s increasing paranoia and fear. Sheridan subtly applied HLS de-sat blacks to cool the grade, amplifying the feeling of despair. 

Clyde Kellett completed the online for the one-off as well as the intricate FX work on various phones and tablets to dissociate the content on the screen from one particular social media platform using Avid DS.

Post produced by Nick Baker.
