Capital FX use Discreet Lustre to grade Asylum

London film facility, Capital FX has used Discreet Lustre to grade 'Asylum' at its new digital grading theatre.
Set in England in the 1950s, Asylum tells the story of a woman who falls in love with one of her psychiatrist husband's patients who murdered and disfigured his wife in a jealous rage.
When she is forced to decide between him and her family, her choice precipitates an appalling tragedy that changes the course of their lives.
The film was originally shot and edited in 2003 but was later re-cut. As the original negative was not available for the second edit, the frames that were added had a different grade and splices appeared mid-shot. Capital FX was initially charged with fixing the splices and grading the added material.
Director David Mackenzie and DoP Giles Nuttgens unhappy with the original chemical grade tried to amend it in HD but still were not satisfied. So when they came to London and saw the work that Capital FX were doing with Lustre, they asked them to regrade the entire film.
Capital FX did the scanning in-house using an ARRI Scanner. ARRI also helped with calibration and print emulation tables using the ARRI Colour Management System. Lustre was used for replacement shots, DVEs and dynamic grades. The project took about three weeks to complete.
'Asylum' is scheduled for a September release in the UK.
Capital FX has also completed the grading and conform for a short film called The Bridge, visual effects and titles for the British Film, Dead Man's Cards, and has a number of future projects lined up.
