We’ve been continually improving our weekly livestreaming over the past 18 or so months. However, this has accelerated since March this year, and we’re appreciative for all who have helped.
We use two BMD cinema cameras as setup in our studio. Filming in BRAW, we’ve been using a progression of modified LUTS for our livestreams, and this week we made the mistake of creating/using a LUT that was too “bluish”.
Our film is recorded to SSD in BRAW 10 bit video format.
However, the LUT (Look Up Table – an applied colour grade) we used on Saturday’s livestream was too bluish – we received several viewers comments on this. Some said that I “looked tired”. Others said it looked “washed out”. It’s amazing how colour can negatively affect mood and feel!
So, back to the editing suite, and thus for the next studio livestream we’ll try this completely new LUT/colour grade (which we’ve already used in post.)
I hope we’re finally reaching a level of maturity in our media streaming work where any future changes are merely incremental. We always appreciate and value viewer feedback.
Our small team has worked extensively on improving, for example, audio quality. You’ll also note the new backdrop that we added last week, together with some subtle lighting changes. The biggest job each week, however, is the preparation of good quality content – a task that only the Holy Spirit can enable.
A big thank you for all who have supported our work with suggestions, contributions, prayers and donations. The glory goes to God alone who is calling many in the great harvest of humanity. May we be faithful as He works through us according to His will.
