Brief Picture and audio post-production of the 6 x 45-minute university drama for BBC Three.
How it was done Colourist Sonny Sheridan graded the series using Digital Vision’s Nucoda to establish a dynamic and stylised cinematic tone.
To reflect the unravelling storyline and darkness of the series many layers were applied, with each utilising a different shape to focus on the desired area using highlight and contrast.
Additionally, various vignettes were applied to bring down the edges of shots, giving depth to the shadows and elements within the scene, whilst highlighting the character.
Dubbing mixer Andrew Godwin mixed the audio using Pro Tools HDX version 12, on an Avid S6 console.
In some scenes, Godwin duplicated the music track, creating a clean music track and one or two heavily affected tracks, often using the Altiverb plug-in.
Having music on separate faders allowed Godwin to drift and blend between the different musical effects, complimenting the transitions of emotions within the storyline.
Some scenes which didn’t have any dialogue were re-built using Foley and sound FX, enabling certain sounds to be heightened which when mixed with the score, created a tension or unease to compliment the story.
Owen Hulme completed the online using Avid DS Nitris.
The series was post produced by Harriet Dale and Chris Foster.
