Basic Grading & FX

In order to get the cold, hazy, winter look I envisioned, this is the basic process these shots go through.

  • Above we have our original plate that was shot on Red Epic.
  • The FG elements are then roto’d, which allows us to create a black and white matte.
  • The matte is used to place objects behind it such as a smoke plume.
  • Additional snow particles and muzzle flashes are added.
  • The final grade is applied to the entire comp.
  • Lastly, the shot is rendered out, which is essentially exporting it into one complete file.

Then, repeat for the next 100 shots….

Behind the Scenes: Summer Unit

Alas, the summer unit has begun filming! A much different experience than the cold rainy days of the War Unit. Can’t wait to get back out there next month to wrap the entire show.

Check back for some post production posts coming soon!
