BBC Street, the in-house post-production facility at BBC Scotland in Glasgow, has installed a new Baselight system to upgrade their grading and finishing suite.
“We wanted to upgrade the Baselight grading suite to improve both the creative and technical functionality, and indeed the customer experience,” said colourist Tom Nicol. “Having access to the latest Baselight software allows us to offer the highest-quality service in line with the market and broaden our potential client base. That is appealing to clients and will encourage them to finish with us – grade, online, dub and delivery. It also future-proofs us for new business requiring 4K/HDR grading and delivery.”
Colourist Mike Trevett said, “We also use Baselight for rescue work (if a production has had problems on the shoot) and some effects and compositing. Baselight TWO has only made that work much easier.Being able to grade a variety of footage shot on different cameras, with archive thrown in, and know that you’ll have a uniform scene-referred working experience, and that what you see is what you will get when it comes out the other end, is valuable on a lot of levels.”
