Eric Weidt On Grading Mindhunter

There’s next to nothing online about HDR color grading, so this marvelous presentation by Eric Weidt, where the colorist talks about his collaboration with director David Fincher on Mindhunter, is a real treat. Incredible that Film Light thought it worthwhile enough to deliver in HDR. Turn the lights down and enjoy!

Scott Miller, Senior Member Technical Staff, Dolby Laboratories, says 10,000 nits, the peak brightness of PQ, is the brightness of a typical fluorescent tube, but those fluorescents at 5:51 are pretty intense, even when watching on a 1,000-nit display! 😱
