To promote Virgin's coverage of 2019's Guinness Six Nations, a second promo was shot. This one featured big names including; Ronan O'Gara, Shane Horgan, Matt Williams, and presenters Sinead Kissane and Joe Molloy. The promo combined these shots with a whole host of amazing moments from last year's winning Six Nations. Many of the rugby clips came from different sources, so the task of grading all the shots to give them a similar look became more complicated. Once this task was complete we went about the second part of the job which was to further enhance the shots with atmospherics and light effects. Snow particles, explosions of dust on impact shots, light leaks and artificial depth of field were all created to help enhance each individual shot.
Similar enhancements were also carried out on the shots of panelists. Below you can see the before and after of the grade. The third image on the far right represents the final result which includes additional light effects.
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank the promos team at Virgin Media who are always a joy to work with.
