FREELANCE COLOUR GRADING

 

Our lead colour grader Gabriel Xavier has extensive experience of music videos, short films, features, content and commercials, including two years spent in Paris working exclusively on fashion and beauty.

More than just a technical professional, his sensitive aesthetic understanding of art history, cinema history and current trends in fashion, advertising and film-making make him an essential artistic collaborator.

Gabriel is also experienced doing basic online, delivering for DCP and can arrange expert broadcast delivery.

pre-prod look consultation

Gabriel offers a unique process of collaboration with Directors, DoPs and Art Department during pre-production.

In a pre-shoot meeting, he will expertly analyse existing reference material and test footage to specify palettes, prescribe target IRE levels and build a bespoke toolbox of LUTs for monitoring on set during your shoot.

This low-cost high-yield process keeps the client happy on set and guarantees the footage you capture will make the final process of grading both precise and economical, with truly stunning results.
