What new technology are you working with? Amongst many gadgets of the trade, the two newest arrivals over the last couple of years is a real-time Mac based DaVinci Resolve grading system, linked up to a mammoth new Penta HD2Line Pro 32 inch grading display. During your career in post what was the biggest “turning point” into new technology? For my particular job it was the availability of a fully kitted out, real- time grading suite (including screen, control surface, machine and storage) for under £50,000. It was unthinkable at the time that a system that was previously close to the cost of a house, was now closer to the cost of a car. The cost and efficiency improvements of most of the technologies involved have made this possible. What is your favourite / least favourite things about working in post? My favourite thing is the actual art of grading and the variety of people I meet and work with every week. The hours can suck sometimes though. What gets you out of bed in the morning to go to work? The rubbish on the radio wakes me up, and the prospect of helping a few tired, and possibly jaded, filmmakers see their film come back to life gets me out of bed.   Perfect Monitoring Even in challenging rooms Applying acoustic treatments to your studio can only achieve so much - particularly when it comes to problem bass frequencies.
