Blackmagic Design today announced that Golden Rooster Award Winner Chaogtu with Sarula was graded by Luo Mengzhou of Beijing Film Academy (BFA) with DaVinci Resolve Studio and DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel.

Based on the novel The Shepherdess by Mo Yue, Chaogtu with Sarula tells the story of an ordinary Mongolian couple, who run into conflicts when they pursue different lifestyles respectively. Directed by Professor Wang Rui, dean of the Directing Department of Beijing Film Academy, starring Jiritumu and Tana, this film was premiered on July 31, 2020 across China and has won the Best Director at the 33rd Golden Rooster Film Festiva and the Award for Best Artistic Contribution at the 32nd Tokyo International Film Festival.

According to Luo, most of the scenes were shot by the team headed by DoP of the film, Prof. Li Wei, dean of the Cinematography Department of BFA, on the steppe in Inner Mongolia, China. Prof. Li's team did a great job of cinematography and they set a great store by color grading in the hope that the colorists would make the image look appealing and reflect the realistic theme of the film, said Luo. The film was shot with cameras from two manufacturers, therefore color match would be one of the major tasks for us.

With the story line spanning autumn and winter, the colorists referred to a large number of oil paintings before deciding on the looks for scenes shot in different seasons. The look of the autumn grassland we finally decided on was inspired by Shepherdess with her Flock' by French artist Jean-Fran ois Millet and a cold desaturated look was confirmed for the winter scenes, Luo recalled.

They focused on adjustments of contrast and brightness for primary grading, combined with finesse in log mode for subtle changes in secondary grading, resulting in a unique look, which was generally bright, connotating that hope was always there in the story full of ups and downs.

Looking back on how he handled the color for the film, which was his first experience of working with ACES in DaVinci Resolve, Luo said: DaVinci Resolve has been my tool of choice since I started using DaVinci 2K Plus ten years ago because of its powerful pages for specific jobs and elaborate node based workflow. This has made it a stand out major post production tool. Now with the new ACES workflow, it has become more powerful and versatile. The ACEScc AP1 color space I used for this film was very helpful in color matching shots from different cameras.

What's noteworthy is that when switched to an ACES workflow, the sensitivity of the rings around the trackballs on the DaVinci Resolve Advanced Panel will change, or at any rate, it becomes more responsive and the changes in the waveforms could be more radical but whatever adjustments I have made, the details will be still there, he added.
