Our Senior Colourist Nick Dalby graded Sampha’s ‘Blood On Me’ with Somesuch and Director Alex Lill.
He says it is still one of his most creatively challenging yet rewarding pieces to date. From putting a mini in a tree and making it fall, to pulling leaves through Sampha’s body. All of which needed to look believable. It was all shot on 35mm film in Essex and had a real distinct look and feel in the grade. There were also multiple vfx passes that had to be composited using Baselight. Achieving the final look was massively helped using the film grade tool to balance all the shots and D Key to really isolate specific areas to add some of the key colours throughout.
