@MissionDigital spoke to Shelly Johnson, ASC (@shellyjohnsonasc) about the process of working with Mission Digital on "The Hurricane Heist", which was initially called "Category 5" "I was very excited to work with Mission Digital on Category 5. They demonstrated a real desire to be involved with the project and were all-in from the start. Since we were prepping in Bulgaria, I met Chris Nunn (Mission Digital DIT) over Skype and had a chance to get to know his aesthetic and get an appreciation for is positive attitude and exceptional work ethic. Mark (Purvis CEO at Mission Digital - @MarkAtMission) was very helpful in facilitating the type of custom color set up that I wanted… and he did incredibly detailed preparation from long distance. The reason that I don't use a DIT is that it distracts me from my full-time job as a Director of Photography. On my first digital project, I used a DIT but felt I was pulled away from the Director on the set when he needed me… all for the reason of grading dailies.
I decided, from that point on, to develop a more film-like workflow where we view the camera image on-set through a simple viewing LUT, then perform proper color correction at night per my grading instructions… just as we did when we were doing telecine film transfers a few years back. In this case, I can drop-in on the grading suite and sit for a few minutes each night, work with Chris and get the dailies right where we wanted them. All this while being able to give the Director 100% of my attention on-set. What happens in this scenario is that Mission Digital becomes a key component in the authorship of the image. They aren’t button-pushers or drones following exacting instructions, but more collaborative artists that make daily decisions that affect the mood and storytelling of the movie. They get a sense of ownership and feeling of pride in the creation of the image that reminds us why we all love working in movies. We then become a united front with the goal of putting the best image possible up on the screen for Rob (Cohen - Director of "The Hurricane Heist"). "

"The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" tells the story of Juliet Ashton (Lily James @lilyjamesofficial) from war torn London to the island of Guernsey where the community are still dealing with the legacy of the Nazi occupation.

@MissionDigital spoke to DOP Zac Nicholson BSC @ZLNicholson about achieving the look for the film. “The North Devon coastline provided a wild and relatively undeveloped backdrop where we were able to emphasise the natural, rugged, beauty of the countryside whilst avoiding anything too overly saccharine.

Juliet Ashton undergoes an emotional journey as she struggles to find her place in the world which we attempted to reflect in the quality and colour of the light from urban smog to the fresh and natural climate of Guernsey.

In order to achieve the look I worked closely with Iain Mackay, a gifted camera operator and regular collaborator who made a huge contribution as did colourist Adam Glasman at Goldcrest.
