From Commercials To A Feature

I’m beginning a very rare process of Feature Grading, as a commercial colorist they don’t come around too often!

This feature is only 73mins long so Robbie andPat would probably have it finished in a day or two!

Short form colorists myself can struggle transitioning into longer projects as we are so used to obsessing over every little detail in a 30second spot.

Preparation Is Key

My day job is still going to be grading commercials so I need to grade the feature in the evenings and weekends.

This requires being very organized and on top of what needs to be done and when.

I also need to try and maximize the directors attended time as possible.

Let’s jump over to the video below and dive into step one.

Hopefully, I can keep sharing updates as we progress through the grade!
