Post Clear Cut Pictures

Brief Picture and audio post for the series, which is made up of clips of people in dangerous situations.
How it was done The clips used a variety of frame rates, resolutions and standards that required conversion via Alchemist, so that senior colourist Graeme Hayes could complete a smooth, even finish using Da Vinci Resolve.
To maintain realism in spite of the poor-quality audio or mute material, the tracklay needed to be congruent with the quality of the source material, so each audio clip was treated separately with EQ, and sometimes distortion, to give a more realistic sound.
Dubbing mixer Adam Wood had to build up a lot of the sounds from scratch, using as much of the original material as possible to give it a raw and exciting feel.
