We work with a node-based colouring process in DaVinci Resolve Studio. Usually the work is devided into balancing, grading, matching and secondary grading (colour adjustments with masks).

BEFORE & AFTER COLOUR GRADING:

A FEW MORE COLOUR GRADING EXAMPLES FROM THE SECOND HALF OF 2023:

We’ll be discussing which look you are looking for: the clean video look, something desaturated, maybe a film look or even something special like a cross process, bleach bypass or alike?

Even when shot with different cameras, the colours will be matched across the footage and adjusted to your needs. We're looking forward to having an initial chat with you. In the meanwhile check out some examples:
