Colorist Look Inspiration – Food Commercials

Apologies for posting two inspiration posts in a row. I am away on a holiday at the moment and thanks to dodgy hotel wifi I can’t post my video insight this week.

I spend a lot of my year working on food commercials.

In a way a food commercial is quite an easy thing to grade as it generally has to look like real life but a luxury and dreamy version of real life but it is normally quite hard technically.

As before I’ll start by sharing my essential techniques and then some commercials that I have worked on and some that I admire.
