FilmLight’s Baselight Used to Set Look for ‘Pacific Rim’

Jul 18, 2013 LONDON — FilmLight’s Baselight system was used to help create the look for Pacific Rim, the new Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures production, directed by Guillermo del Toro. The film was posted at Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging (MPI), where lead colorist Maxine Gervais used Baselight grading tools to help establish the film’s look. Gervais worked on a laptop as well as on a Baselight Eight system, collaborating from set to final deliverables. Pacific Rim was shot in 4K on Red cameras for a 2K and 3D finish. Gervais fine-tuned the de-Bayering algorithms in Baselight before transferring them to Red Tools for bulk conversion.
