FotoKem Grades and Edits 'Ash vs Evil Dead' Pilot with Resolve

FotoKem performed grading and online editing services on the pilot episode of Starz’ Ash vs Evil Dead television series, the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film The Evil Dead and its sequels. Ash vs Evil Dead is executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell, the Evil Dead filmmakers.

The Evil Dead films are known for mixing horror and humor with a signature visual style. FotoKem colorist Alastor Arnold, who previously worked with Raimi on remastering The Evil Dead, headed the Ash vs Evil Dead grading work at FotoKem’s Burbank facility. Arnold relied on a range of Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve color correction features to establish and reinterpret the distinctive look of the classic films.

Raimi was going for a very filmic, warm and saturated look, Arnold explains. “Both he and [film editor of the first episode Bob] Murawski are big film fans. All of the Evil Dead films were shot on and distributed on film, and they wanted to stay true to that feel.” Though it has a filmic look, the television series is shot primarily on ARRI Alexa.
