What is Colour Grading?
Colour grading is what makes videos shine. When we shoot, we often use multiple cameras, locations and lighting - so when it gets to the edit, the look of the video can be wildly inconsistent.
What colour grading does is not only bring everything together to look consitent and visually pleasing, but also give it a whole exciting push into the high-end.
Colour graders make the sky pop, the grass shine, the clothing of the athletes dazzle. Using specialist tools, we can subtly draw the audience to any spot in the frame.
As I work remotely, you will just need to upload high-res footage (up to 200GB) directly to my WeTransfer account. I'll create a stress free workflow that works for you - keeping your project on time and on budget.
My USP is flexibility so don't hesitate to drop me a line to discuss projects of any size. I'll give you an immediate quote and a breakdown of the workflow, from planning the colour grade to uploading the finished product.
Commercial grading projects include TVCs and Social Ads for clients such as Audible, Hertz, Asahi, TikTok, Nytol, Abarth, Visit Britain, Coros, Durex, Octopus Energy, M&S, Joules, ESPA, Nike and Barclaycard.
I work with creative agencies covering grades for YouTube Content Creators, ITV This Morning HUB, Amazon Prime VOD and Documentaries featured on Sky Arts.
