Polly Morgan, who recounts how she ‘fought tooth and nail’ with Sony to be able to add grain to the excessively clean, digital looking Alexa Mini LF footage, was evidently very proud of herself for being able to collaborate on the Dolby Vision master of the excruciatingly dull Where the Crawdads Sing (Netflix), whose HDR, with highlights that peak at 150 nits, is virtually indistinguishable from SDR. It’s unfortunate that Netflix has no policy like Sky UK’s, which cautions that “HDR grades which offer little, to no benefit over SDR, will be rejected.”
