Over two series from BBC Current Affairs, Simon Reeve embarks on an epic journey through the Americas, travelling across two continents. Series 1 sees Simon make his way from Alaska to Costa Rica.
The Americas with Simon Reeve is a grand adventure that will explore parts of the Americas few outsiders or even locals get to see; covering some of the most dramatic and extreme landscapes on the planet – from the freezing mountains of Alaska to the potently humid jungles of southern Mexico. The show will be spread across two series, both with 5 episodes each.
Envy Colourist – Graeme Hayes: The brief was to complement each location on Simon’s epic journey across the two vast continents. From the blue skies of Montana, the bleak Mexican desert to the lush rain forests in the wilds of Southern Mexico, using an ACES colour space in Baselight enabled a smooth workflow and allowed us to encapsulate and enhance the natural beauty of each incredible location.
The majority of the footage was shot Log, although some was captured on Go Pro and drones, thus it was important for us to deliver a consistent grade which seamlessly inter-cut the footage throughout the show; overall providing a congruent and consistent finish.”
Watch Episode 5 – Sunday 10th of November – 9pm on BBC Two.
