Color-grading high-key interviews

This project was solely a compilation of high-key interviews. The project was done to raise awareness against bullying, racism and sexual harassment amongst teenagers.

The main workload for this project was matching two separate cameras. The frontal shot was from an Alexa Mini whilst the side-shot was from an BlackMagic Ursa Mini Pro 4.6k.

The client had asked me to put a "clean white" look on the clips, and to "make it look like an apple interview".

After correcting the colors and skintone, I brightened the scene up a bit. I added some local sharpening and removed some shadows from the background. The grade was quite straight-forward as soon as I matched the two cameras. And I think it came out great!
