COLORGRADING

“Based on experience we know, that individual colors create specific moods.” ~ J. W. von Goethe 1749-1832. So, contemporarily speaking: Colorgrading is an essential element to creating unique moods for impressive motion pictures and cohesive imagery, that allows different scenes to blend and flow together naturally. It’s our highest priority to help you produce captivating imagery to communicate your ideas to the world. If your pictures are choppy or don’t convey the right mood, you will lose any chance of communicating and feeling! And you will lose the attention of your audience, as well as whatever effort you have invested. If the look and grading do not match, your communication is doomed. Visuals that match are essential for the benefit of your film.

ESSENTIALS
YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT OUR
SPECIAL COLORGRADING SKILLS

COLOR

Colorgrading is an art and a science
ART & COLOR

In order to create appropriate cohesive imagery, the context and light of a scene is essential for the colorist. Any given light can and must be interpreted artistically and technically, based on the differences in any given moving information. As you know, identical colors can appear differently in different contexts, therefore the combination of colors and sequential effects are necessary to create the intended look and feel. Many years of experience in color appearance and color science are necessary to become a Senior Colorist and our team of colorists has that necessary experience to treat your work with care.

WORKFLOW

Security for specialized and unique final products
WORKFLOW

The right workflow – BLG, AAF, Preconformed - for your project. Colormanaged grading pipeline for preview and render purposes matching any display technologies. Remote streaming via Ipad or client view browser to attend your grading session from where ever you are. This live connection allows scanwerk's Looksgrade service to work internationally.  You can see your film during the entire post-production process, live, while the magic happens right in front of your eyes.

LOOK DEVELOPMENT

Ensure a specialized and unique final product
LOOK DEVELOPMENT

Your film needs to get the right look, and there are endless possibilities to pick from. The sheer number of pictures on the internet creates high competition. Still images, films, and visual elements in general flood the consumers' screens. The goal has to be a coherent visual communication, making your campaign recognizable in a blink of an eye. Our team of Senior Colorists will provide many different visions to offer you the best possible choices for your film, or stick to your lookbooks or references. Once the key visuals are set by all responsible creators, the real art of matching the shots begins.

TOOLS

Baselight Autodesk Sony Clipster Avid
TOOLS

Your projects need fast, reliable, secure and well connected hardware and software systems. The professional choice for digital creative tools which allow for efficient color programming, is Baselight. Colorgrading today means to compose pictures with many FX functionalities, as well as the necessity to build cross platform (Avid, Flame, Nuke) and multi-format workflows (DCI, HDR, SDR). Baselight offers an incredibly flexible database and the highest quality grading boards to perform with speed. Wide-ranging configurability, combined with the built-in tablet for fast masking and paint tasks, give the artist the freedom and flexibility for creation. The right tools are vital.

SWEETENING

Sweetening Retouching FX-grading
SWEETENING

From gentle finishing touches to heavy retouching tasks, pictures often need a sweetening pass after grading. This process is highly dependent on the colors and the lighting of an image. That's why the best place to do this, is in a colorgrading environment. Classic beauty work, relighting, retexturing, cleanup - we boost image quality and feeling beyond conventional grading services, making your images really stand out.

POST ENVIRONMENT

See everything calibrated in the correct formats
POST ENVIRONMENT

In order to see „reality on screen“, you need a professional environment, suites with class A monitoring. It is important to double check your film with different calibrated display technologies, such as LED, OLED, Quantum DOT, TFT, LCD for Digital Cinema, TV, and IPTV. Nowadays, many formats and deliverables are needed, and we provide them all: SD, HD, HDR, Stereo, VR, AR, 2k, 4k, 8k, 25p, and 120p. We finish your project, in the appropriate specs for your output format and devices!
