Video Village and Live Grading

By using Blackmagic Design equipment, Scopebox software, and a calibrated laptop capable of displaying 100% of the 709 colour space I can directly view your camera’s feed via its SDI or HDMI port.

This ensures I can prevent any problems with the image from negatively impacting your production, all before you press the record button.

In addition I can monitor up to 4 camera feeds directly and view them all in a multi-view configuration in addition to outputting to 3 separate broadcast monitors. This allows me to supply video village and live grading facilities side by side.


Data Management

After the initial offload I can then make sure that all recorded footage is automatically backed up and archived to multiple external drives, LTO tapes, or RAID arrays.

These drives can be formatted for use on Windows (NTFS) or Mac (HFS+), which makes compatibility issues a thing of the past.

When backing up your data I also make sure to utilise checksum verification techniques and spot checks to ensure that your data is a perfect 1:1 replica of the original.


On-Set Proxies and Dailies

After the original footage has been safely backed up I can then export it out as dailies for viewing by the director and other members of your production team.

By utilising Light Iron’s Live Play 3 iPad app I can then wirelessly deliver the dailies out to multiple iPads. This enables the director and DoP to review the raw footage within minutes of shooting.

On top of that Forscene, frame.io, and dropbox integration can be included as a part of the on-set services which gives you a variety of cloud video hosting platforms to choose from. All of which allow for remote reviewing and editing.

Testimonials

  • “It’s been a pleasure to work with Richard over the past few months on the feature ‘Acid Daemons’.

    I’ve found him to be extremely knowledgeable and he was particularly good at explaining complex workflows to a layman like myself!

    I look forward to working with Richard again in the future.”Rachel Robertson, Production Manager - 'Acid Daemons'

  • “I can’t recommend Richard highly enough. His knowledge of his craft is exemplary, second only to his commitment and his eye for detail.

    As well as being a master of the dark technical arts, Richard is a creative in his own right.

    So it’s not just about the nuts and bolts of a project with him, it’s about the director’s vision and how best to realise it.”John McCourt, April Just Gone Productions'
