London – THE LOOK’s Playtime was designed to explore the relevant and dramatically nuanced subject of capital. The challenging work-of-art was created using Mistika by video artist Isaac Julien.
The seven-screen projection is made up of five films at 5K resolution with 30Tb of RED material conformed on THE LOOK’s Mistika system. Colourist Thomas Urbye graded from the RAW RED files using Mistika’s advanced grading toolset, initially grading each screen, and then combining all seven into Mistika’s unique grouping mode for client review on THE LOOK’s 4m projection screen. Complex visual effects were completed by THE LOOK’s VFX partners Lexhag and imported into Mistika to maximise the dynamic range.
