Directed by Ross MacGibbon and produced by Shakespeare’s Globe, the outrageous comedy The Taming of The Shrew, 150-minutes in length, tells the tale of two wealthy sisters, demure Bianca and wild Katherina who must both be married off. BTV Post’s Ian Grey was responsible for the stunning colour grading using Mistika which involved bringing in warm red and yellow colours for an uplifting mood.
Grey explains, “The client was keen to replicate the experience of seeing the shows live at The Globe while crafting a look that would suit the style of the play. The material that came into the grade had a dominance of red in the white and the first priority of the grade was to balance the show so that skin tones were natural.” Grey adds “Mistika’s fantastic “digital printer lights tool” proved a great asset in restoring balance to the image to set-up a starting point from which we were then able to create a warm Italian summery feel.”
