Case study: grade

Editors can use the grade to alter the colour of a shot, evening the light to provide continuity, or giving it a different feel and creating dramatic effect. Nial Brown explains more.

Grading is a post production tool which alters the colouration of shots. Nial Brown shows us how he used grading tools in an Andy Murray promo.

He was able to colour correct for different lighting, add a dramatic sky and even paint out a helicopter.

"We have a technique to paint over offending objects." – Nial Brown
