At the Broadcast Production and Post Forum I was chairman of the Meet the Colourist panel. I met with a couple of the panellists prior to the event and we had a great chat. One thing we had a good laugh at was the use of a blue wash as the look of night. I know it’s a really common method for creating a night look but I have always disliked it and apparently I’m not alone. I’m not sure if you have ever been awake at night and looked around but I’ll assume you have and if so, like me, you would have probably noticed that everything didn’t look blue.
An Interview with Zeb Chadfield This was originally posted here by Chris from ScreenLight Running a growing production or post company is hard. As business starts to pick up, challenges like hiring the right people, deciding on the right pace of expansion, and keeping the pipeline full of the right jobs start to occupy more and more time. This week, I spoke with Zeb Chadfield about the approach he is taking to expanding The Finish Line, his London-based post production company that specializes in picture finishing, online editing and colour grading for broadcast television.
I know it’s a really weird connection but I clearly remember the first time I saw these hooks from Black Magic Tackle. I grew up in a small town in New Zealand and fishing is pretty much the only thing I did as a kid. I would walk off down the train tracks from my house to the port with my little dog Suzie and we would sit down on the jetty at Port Taranaki and fish all day.
