FilmLight announced that it will partner with Dolby Labs, RED, Panasonic and The Foundry at IBC to demonstrate collaborative workflows from set to screen.
At the Dolby booth, visitors will be able to participate in a unique demonstration of Dolby’s high dynamic range (Dolby Vision). Colorist Shane Ruggieri will use Baselight to showcase the extended color spectrum and contrast only available with HDR. Baselight customer Deluxe is already using the technology to master episodic and long-form content in its Hollywood facility.
Panasonic will demonstrate a complete production workflow built around the third generation of its Super-35mm 4K VariCam 35 camera, ideal for high-end filmmaking, commercials and episodic production and post, as well as live 4K events. This includes FLIP, FilmLight’s on-set color corrector, Daylight, the new system for dailies production, and a Baselight finishing system with Slate compact control surface for final grading.
FilmLight and RED will collaborate in a live presentation on the IBC Big Screen on Saturday morning. Laura Jans-Fazio, colorist at Hollywood-based post facility Encore, will showcase her work on Netflix’s acclaimed series House of Cards, Season 2. The presentation will provide a unique opportunity to see an expert colorist grading live in 4K with Baselight.
Product specialists from FilmLight and The Foundry will be running demonstrations of Baselight for NUKE, the new grading plugin for the compositing and effects platform every day at the FilmLight booth.
“Color grading can no longer be seen in isolation, as a separate hero process in the post house,” said Wolfgang Lempp, co-founder of FilmLight. “It has to be regarded as part of a tightly integrated, collaborative workflow from set to screen.”
