Brief Picture and audio post-production on the 6 x 30-minute series in which David Walliams performs a variety of comedy sketches alongside a guest star.
How it was done DoP Martin Hawkins and colourist Nuala Sheridan worked together to create the look, contrasting the colour of studio sketches with skits that are parodies of popular shows.
Sheridan used Film Emulation LUTs to create rich looks for the sketches, introducing mixed lighting with shafts of warm light through cold, dimly lit interiors to ensure the skin tones popped.
Digital Vision’s Nucoda DVO Toolset Clarity feature was used to reduce noise. Using Avid DS, online and VFX editor Barney Jordan completed the online edit and designed graphics, adding title sequences.
Nick Fry mixed the audio using Avid Pro Tools 12.
