Adding Depth (11:58)


Adding shading to two-dimensional objects creates the illusion of depth. Colorist Ollie Kenchington explains how the same principle is used to add depth in film. He uses DaVinci Resolve to relight a shot and enhance the color grading and contrast.

Contrast and Depth (06:14)

Kenchington uses examples from "The Crown" to show how depth is created using contrast. High-contrast points are used to draw the eye into the deepest parts of an interior space.
