Left Bank Pictures (The Crown, Wallander, Outlander) chose The Look to handle picture post on major 8 x 47min drama ‘THE HALCYON’.

* Transmission on ITV1 at 9pm 2nd January 2017 *

The Halcyon is a high profile show and The Look was delighted that Angie Daniell, Chris Croucher, Jess Rundle and Nicki Gunning would entrust us with this series.  The scale of the show is breathtaking, and working with the Directors and Cinematographers we were able to create a high budget cinematic look for the series.  The smooth post production for The Halcyon was carried out at our new state of the art 4K facility in Margaret St.

Shot on Arri Alexa, the conform, grade, online and delivery was all handled by The Look, grading took place in our main grading suite on our Christie 2k projector and Sony OLED HD screens.  Seamless conforming of the Avid timelines in to the Quantel Rio 4K systems then swiftly moved to grading.  Picture fixes could then also be handled by Senior Online Editor Mark Maltby. Delivery of the various DPP and Prores files were also done from the Rio systems by the Control Room team for a fast efficient workflow, upload to ITV was handled by our super fast 1gb internet connection.

In many facilities the conform, grade, online and delivery happens from a variety of different systems making last minute changes harder, efficiency of delivery at risk, and the opportunity for error greater.  At The Look, the project data is kept in a single location throughout the post production process meaning all settings are kept live, meaning a very enjoyable experience for our clients with minimal bookings clashes in suites.

The Look prides itself on offering a unique and bespoke post production experience here in the UK to the leading production companies and broadcasters.
