Brief Provide cameras and post for Idris Elba’s screenwriting and directorial debut, which stars Anna Friel as an accountant whose world is turned on its head after she meets a homeless man who lost everything in a tragic house fire.

 

How it was done Onsight supplied an Alexa camera and lens package to capture a filmic look and processed the rushes and dailies with a quick turnaround.

 

The look was achieved using Mistika by colourist Andy Lee, who created a clean and contemporary finish with enhanced colours on particular objects, including a pair of red shoes that are pivotal to the main character’s thinking.

 

Contrast levels were very important to the piece and had to be consistent throughout.

 

Watch it Thursday, 9pm, Sky Arts 1
