Sydney, Australia –The 10-part drama series, SLiDE, was graded and onlined recently at Cutting Edge for broadcast network Fox 8. The rite-of-passage series follows five 17-year-olds forging their way into adulthood. It is the co-production brainchild of Hoodlum and Playmaker Media and will be exclusively broadcast on Fox 8. Hoodlum and Playmaker came to Cutting Edge to grade and online all ten episodes at Cutting Edge’s Sydney home. SLiDE is a multiplatform television show that incorporates other digital mediums to engage viewers, allowing them to interact with each of the main characters. First of its kind, SLiDE has taken the personality of each of the characters, and built a web component around them and the show using twitter accounts, blogs and online games. With each episode taking place over a 24 hour period, the story takes viewers into the adventures and misadventures of the five characters as they see their favourite bands, sneak into night clubs and generally messing around. The colour grade matches the vibrant lifestyle of each of the teenagers with a high contrast treatment.
