Beijing – Blackmagic Design 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 L.A.-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.
