Grading for an EVIL Look

Nov 4, 2020

Necessary Evil, a web-series, set in literal corporate hell, tells the story of a low-level demon at Hell LLP who is suddenly promoted to CEO. With new powerful, jealous adversaries he must figure out why he was hired, and what he can do to solve a problem that threatens the universe.

Color by LookLabs enhanced the feeling of being in hell with vibrant reds for the headquarter scenes while giving the office scenes a florescent green. The play between these two polarizing colors was nothing but tasty and evil. The series was produced by a Group of Rogues and airs on Seeka TV which is viewable on your Roku, Apple TV, Google Play and Amazon.
