Elton John’s Rocketman Graded with DaVinci Resolve Studio

PostThu Jun 20, 2019 2:27 pm

Blackmagic Design has today announced that its DaVinci Resolve Studio was used throughout the color pipeline on Paramount’s new musical biopic about Elton John’s breakthrough years produced by Marv Films & Rocket Pictures and directed by Dexter Fletcher.

Lensed by DP George Richmond, BSC, Rocketman’s on set DIT workflow was developed and managed by Onset Tech’s Joshua Callis-Smith with Goldcrest Post handling the final DI and online. Senior colorist Rob Pizzey handled the final grade delivering in Dolby Vision Domestic and Theatrical HDR, as well as SDR Rec 709 with Russ White and Daniel Tomlinson completing the online.

Pizzey and Richmond began pre production by defining the main show LUT in early testing where different lenses, exposure ranges and lighting setups were tested against elements from the film’s production design. “Three variations of the LUT were then created at multiple exposures as the films base look throughout the on set DIT, where I helped create a subtle color arc for the film’s dailies to inform the shifting narrative,” reveals Callis-Smith.
