HBO Max’s Reality Graded with DaVinci Resolve Studio

PostTue May 30, 2023 7:33 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that HBO Films’ docudrama “Reality” was graded with DaVinci Resolve Studio by Marcy Robinson, senior colorist at Nice Shoes, a New York City based film and episodic post production facility. With a large part of the film taking place in one room, Robinson was tasked with maintaining consistency while creating subtle nuances, an engaging challenge for the colorist.

With a breakout world premiere at the 2023 Berlin International Film Festival, “Reality” chronicles the true story of the FBI’s interrogation of Reality Winner (Sydney Sweeney), a former member of the United States Air Force and NSA translator turned whistleblower. With Director Tina Satter having transformed the actual interrogation transcript into the successful play “Is This a Room,” she then adapted it into the riveting chamber film “Reality,” once again using dialogue verbatim from the FBI’s audio recording of the interrogation.

According to DP Paul Yee, “Reality” is intentionally narrow in scope. “It takes place in one house, mostly in one bare room, over the course of a few hours,” he said. “We wanted to limit the visual stimulus at the start of the movie so that any camera or character movement or lighting cue would feel deliberate and purposeful. As ‘Reality’s’ story unfolds, the visual language slowly shifts from procedural and objective to subjective and visceral.”
