Korean mystery film “Madonna” graded with DaVinci Resolve

The film was made in the low key style using DaVinci Resolve’s tracking feature to automatically trace the characters’ faces accurately.

The story unfolds mostly in a hospital ward, which director Shin wanted to appear filled with an atmosphere of death. Eligio Kim created the “death” look with a low key style in DaVinci Resolve, but the director thought the faces of the characters in the resulting images were not bright enough.

“When I was making the low key style, the faces went darker than in the original footage and it became difficult to see the facial expressions. That was the biggest challenge as brightening faces would bring about intensive tracking work,” said Kim. “Fortunately, DaVinci Resolve’s tracking feature saved me a lot of time by automatically tracking the faces in most of the shots with accuracy.”
