Blackmagic Design today announced that Los Angeles based post production company Encore is using DaVinci Resolve for color grading on CBS? hit television show ?Elementary,? which features Johnny Lee Miller as detective Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as his faithful sidekick Watson.
While shooting takes place in New York City, Cinematographer Ron Fortunato, ASC, works closely with LA based Senior Colorist Tony D?Amore at Encore, who is responsible for color grading the entire show. Originally shot in Log-C, the dailies colorist, Steven Bodner, applies a single Linear LUT to all the footage. By loading the same LUT on a node in Resolve and the dailies CDLs, created by Steven, on another node, Tony is able to start with the exact same color as the dailies that were delivered to the network, DP and producers.
Resolve allows Tony to turn the LUT node on and off on demand, which is used if he has a stock shot, title card or main title sequence that is already linear. The same goes for the dailies? CDLs, which Tony can use as a starting point or transition to Log-C if he decides to go in a different direction and needs the latitude of the original footage.
