I was assigned as a DIT for the new TV commercials for Bubbleroom.se shot in Stockholm with South African supermodel Charlbi Dean Kriek. Assigned as the DIT and later on Colorist and with the use of the RED Epic I pretty much decided which workflow we were going to use. Last time I did something similar with for Match Fashion with the same set up in New York so this time I really wanted as a colorist to use the ACES (Academy Color Encoding Specification) system. Primary I color graded for TV with Rec709 specification and it looked great. Then later to have it screened on a 4K Christie DLP, I did the debayering in Redcine-X Pro with Open EXR and instead of DaVinci YRGB I utilized the DaVinci ACES color science in DaVinci Resolve. Using ACES, it’s wonderful to having the entire gamut instead of narrow gamut like Rec709 or sRGB making it virtually impossible to either limit or clip colors and having such possibilities while grading in DaVinci. Usually using the LMD 24″ grading monitor from Sony, with some good contact at Sony I was able to try the 42″ LMD monitor, rather then the OLED screen and grading in 42″ is one hell of a difference!
And here you can find the commercial in it’s prime!
Here’s some pictures from the set.
The TVC was directed by Andreas Troedsson at AFOS. Shot by Andrés Rignell. DIT & Color Grading by my self.
