Shot Matching – Introduction To Shot Matching

February 9, 2016

Shot Matching is one of the hardest areas of being a colorist. Dan shares his approach to going head to head with mismatched shots.


Shot Matching – Introduction To Shot Matching

It’s time to enter the gladiators arena that is matching shots.

Where colorists do battle with mismatched camera settings, lighting and even make up issues.

Shot matching is the hardest area of color grading and in all honesty where I spend most of my time.

With that in mind welcome to my first insight in a series about this battle.

This insight is an introduction to how I approach matching.

I’ve taken a few totally opposite shots and show how shots don’t have to match exactly to work.

It’s more about the feeling and natural flow between the footage rather than what the scopes tell you.

I’m going to shoot lots of footage on my BMD pocket camera for some examples of how real world matching works.

Enjoy!
