Brief Provide on-set dailies and finishing post for the three-part series about a British political power-couple.

How it was done Technicolor built and maintained a digital dailies transfer station, supplying remote digital dailies services in the field.

Equipment used included SxS checksum software for the ProRes 4444 master rushes and LTO-5 back-up systems for fast archive of the master rushes, as well as transcoding capabilities for creation of material for editing in Avid.

Senior colourist Paul Ensby graded the series using Autodesk Lustre.

He used a cooler palette for the show with aboveaverage levels of contrast but plenty of detail in the shadows.

As the series progressed and the drama intensified, Ensby boosted the contrast and desaturated the colours, without losing the sense of realism.
