From Shoot to Finish, we can help you design the most efficient approach to handling and backing up your media during the shoot, deliver digital dailies on set, on your iPad or on any screen anywhere in the world, and make sure your transition from production to post goes as smoothly as possible.

Shooting with RED and Alexa cameras require a well-planned workflow that starts on set. Managing Red media correctly, from shoot to editorial and finally to finishing and output, can save tens thousands of dollars in post. A Digital Image Technician is a must on every project that uses these modern cameras and workflows.

As RED Epic and Scarlet camera owners ourselves, we know all the ins and outs of working with RED media, and have successfully edited, graded and finished a variety of shows and commercials shot on RED, Arri Alexa, Sony F3 and all major camera formats.

Whether you need onset color correction and dailies generated from your footage, editing for your project, or grading that taps into these camera’s RAW color space, A Grade is the place.
