SpeedLooks REC 2020 Coming Soon

May 3, 2019

In 2009 LookLabs became one of the first color grading companies to release a series of professional narrative and film based LUT's with SpeedLooks. A few years later, SpeedLooks was licensed by Adobe so their users could create beautifully graded images with the click of a button. Then Avid came on-board and introduced SpeedLooks on its platform. Now artists and colorists from around the world use our products to give their projects unique and personality filled looks.

Technology never stops advancing so, to stay ahead of the creative curve, we are proud to announce that SpeedLooks REC 2020 is coming soon. REC 2020 is a much wider color space with more colors than DCI P3 (cinema colors) and will be the standard for the next 20 years. As clients start to ask for HDR and REC 2020 masters, SpeedLooks will be there helping you create beautiful colors well into the future.

LookLabs Spotlight - SpeedLooks Clean Kodak

Apr 26, 2019

SpeedLooks color grading LUT’s work with all types of native camera footage. Our friends at dissolve.com provided us with stock footage from their collection of over 1.4 million clips. We chose some shots, created a sequence and then applied SpeedLooks to them. The results are impressive, the footage responded easily to SpeedLooks and in no time at all, we had a beautiful looking sequence of shots color graded to look cinematic and stunning. By using SpeedLooks Clean KODAK, this mini video takes on a clean professional look and feel.

This piece features a fit man going for a morning run and was shot at a higher frame rate to give it a nice slow motion effect. While some of the shots were a little under exposed, SpeedLooks had no problem normalizing the exposure while keeping image noise to a minimum.

Staff Pick - Breathing Through a Straw

Apr 3, 2019

This dramatic short by Canadian writer/director Leigh Rivenbark, was inspired by a true story and is the subject of a forty-five year old closeted gay man named Parker, who discovers an internet craze that might provide relief to his despair. A surprising text message puts him on a path of reflection, discovery and redemption. The film won the Jury Award for a Short Film at the Canadian Film Fest in Toronto, the Best Alberta Short at the Calgary International Film Festival (Oscar-qualifying festival), and the Award of Distinction from the Canada Shorts Film Festival. The film stars Christian Lloyd (The Handmaid’s Tale and Maps to the Stars).

Leigh brought his film to LookLabs for a color grade and picture finish. "We started the grade as we usually do by creating a unique look that would complement the uneasy contextual tone of the film. We began with our DFS Kodak film stock and blended it with SpeedLooks Blue and Gold. The end result gave us that great Kodak look with hints of blue in the shadows and warmer golden highlights" stated LookLabs chief colorist Jeff August.

Check out this short grading vignette to see what the completed grade looked like.
