Your simplified route from production to post

Your simplified route from production to
post

TIME is invested into crafting a great story

MONEY is spent hiring cast, crew, and equipment

ERRORS can cause you to waste both


By providing on-set services I can offer immediate review, editing and grading capabilities.

And with live multi-cam support costly errors can be spotted before you even hit record.

This reduces the downtime between production and post from days to minutes. Saving you both time and money.

  • DATA WRANGLING

    Footage is offloaded, backed up, and archived across any combination of HDD, RAID, or LTO tape storage devices allowing for instant review.

  • COLOUR GRADING

    Custom looks can be created on location or done remotely as part of a comprehensive grading process.

  • ON-SET DAILIES

    After offloading the custom looks can be applied and dailies / proxies generated for uploading to the cloud or streamed to iPads for review.

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.

Backups and Archival

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.

Live Colour Grading

When lighting solutions prove too impractical colour grading can be performed on location to create custom visual looks.

This gives your project a unique look that can then be sent to the colourist in post-production for final tweaks.

This allows the DoP and creative team a lot more control over the visual look of your finished film.

On-Set Proxies and Dailies
