L-5 Imaging Color Grading


    In contrast to the videography section, this collection of videos features more focus on color grading (and in some cases editing/FX). These may range anywhere from minor productions to grading experiments to rig tests. Please Contact L-5 Imaging to discuss freelance color grading and editing services. We can offer hourly or attractive day rates, including discounts for repeat business. And, while we use Resolve Studio 17, it makes no difference if you use Premier Pro or FCP as a NLE - we speak your language (bake-and-blade/EDL). We can do shot-matching if you provide reference stills or clips, and generally deliver in ProRes 444 XQ along with lower-res previews. Note that all drone footage was shot by L-5's founder, Jim Armstrong.
