My Life with Puppets - What Colour Correction can do to improve the overall look of your film.

Today we will be focusing our attention on Colour Correction and its importance to changing the mood and creating depth to a shot.


My Life With Puppets was shot on the Sony HXR-NX100. This camera has multiple picture profiles which can be assigned based on the type of production you are creating.


For this documentary, I decided to pick a picture profile that created a flat image. A flat image provides you with more options when you take your footage and place it in the post-production timeline by allowing more options to change the colour degradation within the image.

For example, I have selected an image of a Pinocchio puppet that Ronnie owns. The image is flat, lacks colour and is rather dark.


By placing an adjustment layer above the image on the Premiere timeline and applying the Lumetri Scope effect, it provides me with options for the depth of the image.
