Brief Grade the third series of the legal drama following a group of barristers’ court cases as well as their personal lives.

How it was done Senior colourist Dan Coles used Baselight to grade the six-part series.

He set out to create a rich look that was high in contrast, making sure that the naturally warm tones in the courtrooms were generally graded towards a cooler palette, particularly in the shadows. In other locations, he accentuated the natural warmth.

Coles used vignettes and shapes to enhance detail and add depth to the pictures.

The conform, online and international versions of the programme, as well as VFX work, was carried out by Technicolor senior editor Simon Giblin using Avid DS.
