Hi, I just finnished directing the photography, compositing, and colour grading my latest TV ad for a non-profit ogranisation and I wanted to hear your opinion. It's about a political prisoner in Cuba in a prison cell replica. CGI was used in creating the prison bars, and compositing was for adding the cuban palm trees in the window. Since I did the colour grading this video too, so I attached an original screenshot of the video so you can see the difference.

Here's the link to the released commercial:

Thanks, but I signed an NDA with the organisation so the tech specs are kind-of confidential B) , but what I can tell you is that it was recorded on a VDSLR at 24p and at f1.4 to get the depth-of-field. Colour grading was done with an in-house digital colour grading system from Escobar Studios, a post-production company founded by me in 2006.

As you can see, colour grading had a HUGE impact on this video.
