Day 19: 24 Insights In 24 Days – 2020 New Year Marathon!

Show Me Your Looks

Building A Sci-Fi Feature Film Look

I had a request from a Mixing Light member to bring back the Grading Challenges so here we are and we are looking at building a look for a Modern Sci-Fi film.

I love dishing out a brief and seeing how every single one of us will come up with something totally different.

If you’ve never taken part in one before please do this time!

It’s essentially me role-playing as the client and setting a brief for the grade and also giving feedback on your attempts in the comments section

I also wrap up things by doing a video Insight with the same footage and comparing my looks to yours.

In this Challenge, I’ll also be sharing my version of the look in Baselight to give you an example of look development in Baselight with particular focus on how powerful Base Grade is.

I’ll be using Base Grade to build my Modern Sci-Fi look

The goal of setting a brief is to give you a focused area to work on.

The hard part about grading is there are so many options and creative choices that you need to narrow it down to something specific to really challenge yourself.

There is no winner and no loser on challenges like this it’s all about refining your client skills and practising your grading skills.

Onto the challenge!
