Building Looks And Finishing A Music Video Shot On The Panasonic GH5

Happy New Year and welcome back to my grading suite!

My favourite thing to talk about here on Mixing Light is real-world jobs that I’ve graded and I have an extra special Insight for you.

We’ll be looking at how I graded this music video for the wonderful Daniel Broadley

YouTube video

This video was shot on the GH5 as a one-take so it gives me a great opportunity to show one of the most common questions I come across:

How do I deal with compressed formats such as the GH5, S1H, A7s etc?

I actually LOVE grading Panasonic footage. Especially from the s1h as it records in 10 bit. In a future Insight you’ll learn how I graded a live concert film shot across 9 cameras that included 3 Alexa’s and 6 GH5s!

In this Insight, we are going to take a look at:

  • Building a “Show Look”
  • Colour Pipeline And Grade Management in Baselight
  • Boost Contrast
  • Boost Colour
  • Texture Highlight
  • Texture Equaliser
  • Quickly Adding Dissolves Between Grades

Comments Please!

I’m always extra excited to read comments on these Insights as I can make sure to cover any questions in the next part.

-Dan
