We are proud to show you Red Sky Pictures newest demo reel showcasing our Film, TV and Commercial color correction services. We grade in the professional software Davinci Resolve utilizing high-end computer systems and hardware, which gives us unparalleled control to make the necessary color adjustments for creative and technical purposes.
Bringing your project to us for a dedicated color correction pass is a necessary step to finishing your film, commercial, or documentary. No camera has the proper controls, and no production has the time or budget necessary to get the look 100% in camera. Additionally, most of the time editors are working off of low res or “proxy” files that are nowhere near the resolution and quality necessary for your finished project. During color correction at Red Sky Pictures, we conform your project back to the original, highest quality version of the media before beginning any work. We can start from scratch building new looks to your creative taste, or work from the starting point the production team carefully crafted on set.
In today’s lesson we’ll be importing and setting up the metadata pass on Red One Footage. I’ll explain a few things I talked about in the video in more detail and hopefully answer any questions you have. If you want to know more, feel free to leave a comment and we’ll address it. Read below to get a little more in-depth explanations of various parts of the tutorial. Continue reading →
Red Sky Pictures recently provided DIT services for Eyewax TV’s production for Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival. With three Epic cameras, and six DSLRs, Red Sky had to provide an efficient workflow to manage terabytes worth of media throughout the day, as well as a way for pre-color-corrected files to be handed off for same-day editing. The workflow allowed a final product to be turned around just a few days after the wrap of the three-day, 36-hour music festival.
EDC is one of the largest electronic music festivals in the country, and showcases many of the world’s best DJ’s along-side awesome art displays and fun carnival rides. The experience really is like stepping into another world, but still fun nonetheless. Red Sky is excited to build even faster workflows for data management for these productions in the future.
Color Correction is one of the most important, yet oftentimes overlooked and under-budgeted aspect of filmmaking in the non-studio market. With today’s digital cameras, professional grade color correction will make a world of difference with any type of production. The quality of today’s high-end cameras – such as the Red Epic, Red One, or Arri Alexa to name a few – is astonishing and according to some, even surpasses film. These cameras are able to acquire so much data that the images don’t look good to our eyes right out of the camera because they look too “flat” and “desaturated.” This allows an extreme amount of creative freedom in post-production but also requires a lot of time to achieve the right looks. I’ll show some visual examples below first, then explain how the color grading process can help your specific project. Continue reading →
