Brief Picture and audio post for BBC2’s 3 x 60-minute drama about the Bloomsbury group.

How it was done Tony Osborne graded the series using Nucoda Film Master.

Vintage lenses, nets on the back of the lenses and diffusion helped to give the Alexa-shot images a distressed, rather than digital, look. DoP Alan Almond wanted a painterly look and was keen to avoid post-production techniques such as vignettes, which can be obvious when transmitted.

Director Simon Kaijser wanted to add a little green to the blacks to create a feeling of unease.

Subdued, desaturated tones without excessive contrast and warmth, together with handheld camera work, gave it a very different look to other period dramas.

Graham Wild mixed the audio with Pro Tools 11 and an Avid S6 desk.
