The Docu Series 24 Pictures A Second focuses on following and hearing from working professionals in the film, tv, and pro-video industry. In this episode, colorist Josh Bohoskey of The Mill walks through the color correction of a new, and stylistically specific, narrative piece with Framework Productions.
After detailed discussion with style references, each moment is graded and then layered, creating a look that is both visually cohesive and narratively supportive. From saturating and desaturating to keying and tracking, the thrust of the story and every other element combine and even "pop" under this execution of the color-vision.
