Part 4: Color Grading Commercial #1
In this Insight we are going to take a look at the grade on commercial one out of 10. It’s the most basic on the technique front but it’s a great example of the thought process behind a look supporting the narrative.
In the video below I show my real-time approach to grading the commercial.
These are a great chance to experiment with how the behind the curtain series progresses and grows.
The footage is good enough to give it a nice look, it has a couple of minor issues that I fix and it’s also not too long so I can do it all in real time.
A breakdown of the ideas and processes I cover in the video below :
- The thoughts behind a “movie night” look in an average everyday kitchen
- Establishing the brightness levels
- Establishing the color temperature
- Starting The Match
- Watching and Observing!
- Refining the look based on all the footage
