Brief Picture post on the second series of Mackenzie Crook’s 6 x 30-minute comedy about a group of metal- detecting enthusiasts in rural Essex.
How it was done Avid DS online editor Scott Hinchcliffe picked up where he left off in series one, creating a “love letter to the English countryside”. Several sequences required rig removal and the insertion of mobile phones and television sets. A Norman church in a rainstorm was also created using a plate of a modern church shot on a sunny evening in Suffolk. Using Baselight, colourist Kevin Horsewood then gave the comedy a touch of sunshine, using sky replacement tools to warm up the dour English weather that blighted the exterior shoots. Day-for-night flashbacks were accentuated with a silvery bleach bypass look.
