Spanish post house La Bestia Produce relied upon an ACES color managed pipeline which provided a fresh look and eliminated the need for LUTs, facilitating more creative freedom.

One of the main benefits of the transition to an ACES colorspace was that the colorists were able to work in the same colorspace as the VFX compositors, with no difference between camera rough cuts and post production shots. This workflow was particularly beneficial on a series that contains more than 300 VFX shots per episode,” Cuquerella explains.

“Utilizing EXRs, we could get a RAW image to our compositors, and have the result of their work sent back to us with the VFX incorporated using the color parameters we’d defined. This was particularly vital for a series like ours, where new effects were introduced that hadn’t been planned initially, without requiring that shots be reapproved,” adds colorist (Jorge Molina) Cuquerella

Each chapter underwent multiple rounds of revisions during the online process, according to Cuquerella. “Through the implementation of ACES in Resolve, we were able to ensure all departments always spoke a unified language, streamlining the finishing,” he concludes.

Thanks to Colorist Cuquerella for using ACES, and CWG for the coverage.
