Managing the elements and components on a feature film is pretty much a full time job. Dan shares his tips for using markers to stay on top of his project

Feature Grading: Using Markers To Keep Your Sanity Part 1

My Second Feature Of The Year

I’m currently grading a feature documentary which is about 98 minutes long and I can honestly say using markers has changed my life.

I’m doing the full grade AND online edit in Resolve 12.5. I would have loved to do it in 14 but when you mix beta software and feature films it’s is a quick way to get fired from a project.

The film is a mix of every format imaginable.

We range from UHD re-scans of music videos shot by David Fincher that need to be graded to match the original to home movies shot on Hi8.

The edit has also been changed about 18 times. I wish I was joking!!!

The project has taken over my life and on a couple of occasions I even had nightmares about what had to be done the following day.
