Roundtable Films was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Red Planet Pictures again, providing full post production on the four part series for Channel 5, ‘Inside Windsor Castle’, with international distribution via TVF.
The mix of archive and drama gave us the opportunity to use Roundtable Films’ Nucoda grading software’s incredible DVO restoration tools as well as developing a look that took influence from drama series The Crown.
The series was graded by Roundtable Films’ digital colourist Claire Winter with sound mixing by in-house dubbing mixer Dan Weinberg. The online edit was completed on Avid Symphony by online editor Andrés del Caño who utilised his wide toolset including After Effects, Boris CC, Photoshop, Baselight Editions and Mocha for Avid to provide fast, creative and practical solutions in the online edit.
