Navin Shetty's Nube Studios gets new Baselight facility

NEW DELHI: Nube Studio, set up to provide uncompromised grading services for the Indian market, has opened with a Baselight Two grading workstation as its centrepiece.


The colour-driven facility is providing services for commercials, music videos, television and film throughout the region. As a facility aimed at the top end of production, an important requirement is the potential to work natively with raw files from any camera on the same timeline.


The Baselight system is renowned for its ability to accommodate all professional formats and also fully supports grading metadata of any complexity, including primaries, secondaries, keys, shapes, tracks, LUTs and Truelight Colour Spaces. This allows the colourist to explore all the details from the camera, and achieve the look the cinematographer intended.


Open only since June 2015, Nube already boasts an impressive 100+ TVCs, with a client register including BMW, Philips, Godrej Air, Cadbury, Flip Kart, Maruti, Amazon, Dabur, Yardley, Myntra, Pepperfry, OLX, Sunsilk, Intex, KIT KAT, Kohler, Honda, Nescafe, Britannia, Nerolac, TATA, Airtel, Grofers, STAR TV, EPSON, Mahindra, Olay, Jaguar, Lava, Lifebuoy, Renault, Mentos and Solly Sport.


“Baselight delivers on every feature without restricting the creative process. I am able to concentrate on grading and never compromise on quality or inspiration,” said senior colourist and Nube Studio co-founder Navin Shetty.


“Even at HDR 4K, Baselight delivers real-time playback as soon as the content is in the system,” added Shetty. “Clients are not kept waiting, and with the help of the superior grading tools they can see the final result immediately. For clients, the faster system equals staying within budget.”


FilmLight CEO Wolfgang Lempp said, “We are proud to be associated with India's leading colourist, Navin Shetty. He is very particular about the quality and output of his films. What he and his business head, Ranjan Karkera, have recognised is that directors and producers want to come to a post house and see great pictures just the way they imagined them. At FilmLight we developed our core systems to provide real-time performance even when there is a multi-level grade on top of the raw image. Baselight takes away the technical constraints of transcoding, proxies and unpredictable performance and leaves the colourist to achieve the best look in the shortest time.”


FilmLight will be demonstrating the capabilities of its real-time, render-free grading approach using FilmLight's BLG interchange format at Broadcast India on the stand of their partners, RED and Avid at Broadcast India 2015 to be held at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai, 15 to 17 October.
