Thanks to Mario & Nino for uploading the MXF files AND for shooting that short in the first place! Great result – especially in that short amount of time and with limed resources.

the first scene i traded quite “usual” just a lil push here and there … skin tones, contrast, richer colors… stuff like that… i “protected” highlights in the back window tho’

all the rest – especially in terms of high ISO performance – i did push much more – to see what is possible … and there is a lot of “play-room” for a grade … the grain / noise still looks very organic / filmic (almost like 16mm) even at the limits of what is possible.
even a hard color push / tint is no real issues if you watch your blacks … kinda awesome!

and at no point there was any artifacts you are probably familiar with from DSLR h264 or even XDCamEX or AVCHD stuff … that is really nice!!!

over all … great footage to work on!

i used FCP7, Colorista 2 for all the Color Correction and  Magic Bullet Looks 2 for all creative Color Grading

As soon as i get the whole short film as ProRes422 from Mario & Nino i’ll do a full color grade on that lil movie … i can’t wait!
