How it was done Halo colourist Ross Baker used Nucoda Film Master to grade the series. He kept the gammas open and added golden warmth to highlight the 2006 scenes. A cooler look with a slightly higher contrast was used to represent 2014. Re-recording mixer Paul Cotterell used prominent French voices to emphasise the sense of alienation felt by the lead characters.
The Flying Colour Company creative director Dominic Thomson provided on-set VFX supervision in Belgium. Flame and Smoke were used to create set and sky replacements, along with shadows and reflections, and to localise signs, vehicles and posters into French.
