Brief Post-production on a 3 x 60-minute series in which Chris Tarrant looks at how trains shaped modern Britain.
How it was done Rapid Pictures managed the end-to-end process for the series, combining new material shot on a Sony FS7, Go Pros and a 4K drone with archive material.
The biggest challenge for colourist Matthew Eversfield was balancing restoration work with the 4K footage in the HD workflow.
This was overcome using the Boris FX plug-ins Dust and Scratches, and the Sapphire plug-in Grain Remove.
For the audio, Steve Crook sourced sound effects from an in-house library to bring mute archive footage to life. Sync was dealt with via iZotope RX5 Advance. The online editor was Doris Sajko.
