Close Encounters Of The Grading Kind
In this Insight, we are going to look at creating a Retro Sci-Fi grade which is steeped in nostalgia.
After almost 5 months I am now back at home and starting to return to normal life!
I still don’t have my desk, computer or even chair back but I’m still celebrating.
This insight is recorded at my kitchen table as I thought it would be great to jump back into my creative grading video insights as a celebration.
I recently had to do a very fun grade for a flashback section in a brand film for a football club.
The lighting is perfect for a throwback to the classics I grew up on like ET and Close Encounters Of The Third Kind
Beam Me Up, Scotty
Here is some example of where we’re going to take the grade :
As you can see it’s a pretty cheesy but fun grade.
In the original grade, I used tools like:
- Resolve FX Tilt Shift
- Resolve FX Glow
- Resolve FX Grain
- All the regular grading tools
As not everyone has access to these tools I’ll show you how to build this grade in the non-studio version of DaVinci Resolve.
If you have any requests for more looks please let me know as I had a lot of fun creating this insight.
