Technicolor PostWorks Preserves Style of 'Show Me a Hero'

Publish date:

Postproduction for Show Me a Hero, a six-part drama for HBO, was completed at Technicolor PostWorks New York. Set in 1980s Yonkers, New York, the show centers on conflicts among elected officials, bureaucrats and citizens over federal court-ordered construction of low-income housing. Both dailies processing and final color grading were performed by senior colorist Sam Daley. During preproduction, Daley worked with cinematographer Andrij Parekh in preparing color LUTs as an aid in setting looks on the set. Daley recalls, "We set two LUTs: one that was colder for bureaucratic settings and one that was warmer for human interest aspects of the show."

Daley applied color looks to each day's camera media using a Colorfront system, performing detailed grading on a scene-by-scene basis. "The Colorfront system allowed me to set ASC CDL values that I could carry over to the final grade," Daley says.
