Today Alison graded the venue hire video we’re making for the Natural History Museum. We shot the film over a series of shooting days, when different kinds of events were taking place. We then edited it all down into a 2 minute film. One of the final stages when the film is signed off is to get a picture grade done on the footage.


What is a Picture Grade?

A picture grade is where you use specialist software like Da Vinci to even out footage shot at different times, or with different lighting, to make it more even. You can also use it to accentuate the footage, such as to make dark areas really dark. It’s also possible to fix footage.

We worked at Coda Post Production, where the image is projected on to a large screen. It’s great to see your footage up there.
