The Grand Tour Goes HDR with DaVinci Resolve

The Grand Tour Goes HDR with DaVinci Resolve
With its second series streaming to viewers around the globe, Amazon Prime’s The Grand Tour takes the world’s most exciting cars, driven by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May, to some of the world’s most scenic locations.
The Farm Group London was responsible for the series’ post production. To deliver the SDR and HDR grade, post supervisor Chloe Blackwell and colourist J.P. Davidson relied on a workflow based upon DaVinci Resolve Studio, paired with a DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel.
Using his experience from independent feature films and documentaries, JP was able to deliver a range of looks for the short films and segments that make up each episode. “There’s no single brief on a project like this, as each film can require a completely different tone. One day I’d be creating a slick, commercial look, the next could be something quite experimental; each piece had to feel authentic and appropriate for the car being showcased.
“Getting a project from offline through conform and grade, then back to online and QC in SDR and HDR at 4K required a lot of flexibility, and Resolve’s project management tools were indispensable,” he comments.
“The ability to cut and paste clips, sequences and entire projects through the project manager was absolutely essential for managing this job.
“The ability to create sets of generic node trees as a starting point then select entire chunks of timeline in split screen mode has enabled me to bounce between shots, getting the look consistent. I couldn’t have achieved the grade plus the SDR to HDR workflow on schedule without it.
“Grading in HDR has meant adjusting my perception considerably, but I am blown away by the results we were able to produce across the series.
“Resolve’s structure opens up massive creative potential. I can composite a single clip in more unconventional ways. It meant shots that would normally be sent to VFX or online were achievable within the system.
The Grand Tour was like rolling a few years’ worth of grading jobs into four months. Grading it required careful planning and a lots of technical and creative flexibility. It was a tough but very rewarding project to be involved in,” JP concludes.

DPA 4097 Core Micro Shotgun Finds Additional Role as a Plant Mic Posted: 10/08/2020
DPA 4097 Core Micro Shotgun Finds Additional Role as a Plant Mic DPA Microphones’ new 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Microphone is being widely adapted into the television and film production world as a plant mic solution. Featuring the same sonic qualities as the brand’s supercardioid 4097 CORE Choir Microphone, the compact 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun has been optimized to pick up speech from a distance. “We spoke with professional sound engineers to find out what they needed in their toolboxes and designed the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun as a plant mic solution to complement their other equipment,” says René Mørch, product manager, DPA Microphones. “Ideal for miking in small spaces, the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun has a small footprint and clear audio pickup. The sonic qualities of the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun are particularly beneficial for placing mics in inconspicuous locations as it enables location sound experts to capture sound from anywhere on set. Used in combination with our boom mics and lavaliers, the 4097 Micro Shotgun becomes the final piece of a complete microphone package to meet the needs of any TV or film production. Since the 4097 has the same sonic characteristics as all DPA mics, it is now easy to capture reliable, high-quality audio that doesn’t need dubbing or hours of mixing and post-production work.”

CRYSTAL VISION MAKES CREATING PICTURE-IN-PICTURE EFFECTS EASIER WITH M-PIP Posted: 07/08/2020
CRYSTAL VISION MAKES CREATING PICTURE-IN-PICTURE EFFECTS EASIER WITH M-PIP Crystal Vision has released the industry's first dedicated picture-in-picture device. Designed for IP or SDI playout applications that need one or two picture-in-picture boxes to be inset on the main programme, the M-PIP allows two input flows to be sized and positioned in advance and then layered over either the third input flow or an internal matte generator. The M-PIP can be used with IP (SMPTE ST 2022 and ST 2110 video), with SDI or with both IP and SDI at the same time, and is a software app that runs on the MARBLE-V1 media processor hardware, a card housed in the Vision frame which features a powerful CPU/GPU processor and both SDI and 10GbE IP network interface connections. Picture-in-picture functionality has previously only been available as part of some production mixers, channel-in-a-box systems and master control mixers. As a dedicated double box generator, the M-PIP therefore provides a cost-effective solution for those who only require picture-in-picture functionality, while it can also be used to add extra capability to a standard playout or studio system.
