How it was done The unforgiving nature of the footage meant the FX needed to be of a high standard. Online editor Adam Dolniak tackled the FX work, which ranged from compositing plates from different takes to adding extra fish to a fish tank. Dolniak’s approach was to use optical stabilisation to remove the camera movement, complete the required FX work, then reintroduce the handheld movement. Some set extension was also required, along with the painting out of boom mics, wire removal, disguising brands and painting in extra window lights on external night-time establishing shots.
Chris Rodgers graded in Baselight. He created a bright and ‘contrasty’ look without losing detail in the shadows and highlights. Tracked shapes were used to lift faces and subtle highlight diffusion was applied throughout.
