Look Inspiration – Adding Narrative To A Flashback
Welcome back to Mixing Light for 2016!
Just a note to kick things off. I’ve just moved house and need to do a little tweaking with my audio setup so apologies if my machine is a little loud in this one!
I love grading this footage but unless I have any more particular look requests I think this will be my last insight using it.
To challenge myself further I thought how can I use grading to add to this scene?
My initial thought was to add a flashback feel using both diffusion and motion effects.
After starting this I was inspired to try and add a feeling of a nighttime battle that was interrupted with bright orange as bombs went off and the battlefield was set alight.
It may be a slightly cheesy look but I quite enjoyed making it!

Last but not least download my node graphs below (accessible to active, logged-in members of the Insights Library). I have exported various stages of the grade from start to finish so you can try them all out.
Now that you have everything check out my video below and get grading!
