Color Correction Demo 2009
Shot By: Blare Media
This Color Correction Demo shows the immense flexibility, creative looks, and general fixes that can be achieved through a professional DI/Color Correction work-flow. All of the footage in this piece was shot on a RED Digital Cinema, RED One camera at 4K and 3K resolutions. They were then Color Corrected and rendered down to 1080P HD before being encoded for the web. The RED One camera has the ability to shoot at extreme resolutions in a digital RAW (unexposed or non-destructive) format. Basically the digital equivalent to 35mm film. This gives a Colorist, like myself tremendous leeway and creative control over the final look of a piece. Most of the footage in this demo I processed in Log color space instead of a Linear color space. This allows for a softer, less clipped and harsh roll-off, gradation of the highlights regardless of whether your final output will be in linear space. All of the Color Correction process in this demo can be achieved and applied to any medium (DV, DVCPRO, BetaSP, HDV, P2, etc..) but 35mm film, Uncompressed HD, and now the RED cameras have the most color leeway for extreme corrections and styles without adverse effects of grain and artifacts from compression.
All of the footage above was shot by BLARE Media and on their RED One camera system. They are one of the few production houses in the San Joaquin valley that own a RED camera and can offer this high quality medium.
