Working on a programme with such a demanding production schedule
means ITV Studios is always keen to find ways to improve efficiency
while maintaining production values. That's why the UK’s biggest
production company chose a unique renderless, collaborative workflow -
with Baselight ONE, Slate and Baselight for Avid - to create, adjust and share sophisticated colour grades between colourist and editorial.
If you know what any of the above means, you're a better person that I am! It's all a bit Greek to me. But nevertheless, I urge you to watch the video below for a smashing behind-the-scenes look at some technical aspects to Coronation Street that we never usually see. It's from FilmLight and you can read all about their involvement with Coronation Street here.
In the video below, ITV Studios’ post production
manager David Williams, lead colourist Stephen Edwards and editor Phill
Lees, tell us more about their real-time collaboration and how the
exchange of full grading metadata - produced by Baselight – has enhanced
speed, creativity and productivity.
