EXCELLENCE IN POST PRODUCTION
OSN’S YALLA NETASHA CLAIMS ACCOLADE FOR EXCELLENCE IN POST PRODUCTION
Yalla Netasha claimed its second award of the night, with this win in the Excellence in Post Production award
With over 16,000 minutes of uncompressed video material to sift through, postproduction for OSN Original Yalla Netasha was no easy feat!
Each week, OSN’s small but talented army of editors and story producers trawled through hundreds of hours of material to find the right shots, the perfect soundbites and the unforgettable reactions of each contestant.
Seven offline editing suites worked in tandem on up to five different episodes per week. Like an orchestra, they needed to be synchronised and to work in perfect harmony.
Bearing in mind that Yalla Netasha is a reality television series, a well-defined
post-production workflow is paramount. Hours and hours of footage needed to be easily and seamlessly accessed and processed to allow the creative team to bring to life the trademark, nonlinear storytelling that Yalla Netasha is famous for.
Due to the vast amount of high-quality uncompressed video material, OSN utilised one of the most advanced video storage hardware available on the market, the Avid Unity ISIS. This helped secure content and provided the instant access required to stitch the stories seen across 45 incredible episodes.
Last but not least, when it came to colour grading the footage, the team focused on achieving a natural colour grading palette to retain live natural colours of the footage while accentuating nuances for a more appealing cinematic feel that is not too intrusive or oversaturated.
