Dissatisfied with the Grade
Posted 13 July 2006 - 02:58 AM
I just finished my first TVC shoot on super 16mm, it was a three day shoot with 4-5 TVC cut from the footage. I was of course wraped to get the opurtunity to shoot it. Whilst some of it looks great other parts don't look that great - I'm sure I'm just looking at it through from an overly self critical perspective but was just wondering if anyone had some advice on it.
I was uable to attend the final grade and essentially it looks the same as the one light with a bit of the saturation pulled out of it. Personally I feel like the final grade is really safe overall. But there are a couple of shots where the light was dropping quite quickle outside and I had to keep dropping the light inside to keep up with it. This was of course all happening at a pretty radip rate near the end of the day, essentially the interior looks lit, I personally think that with a bit of tweaking, like bringing the mids down etc the shots would be fine.
Whats the protocol on this, it goes out to tape tomorrow and I'm not sure if I should say anything to the producer?

pretty hard to say, did you have a contract with the production company/ producer that mentions somethign about your rights ?
out of the blue i would say that the producer has the finaly word, but it really depends on the agreements you guys had.

The Grade was done at Digital Pictures, in Melbourne, Australia.

my producer n director flew down there and did the grade there cause it was cheaper than cutting edge brisbane. i was quite happy with the look. but thats always a 50:50 chance i guess, whenever i can i try to attend the grading.
