Colored by Thomas Therchilsen



The war between Germany and Denmark in 1864 was a landmark in Danish history. In addition to the huge reduction in land size, it's the general opinion that the Danish self-perception still is characterized by the war and the events that followed after the defeat.

I find that the contrast in midtones is too flat just using LGG

The project "1864" was produced by Miso Film for the Danish Broadcasting Corporation and delivered both as an eight-hour TV mini-series and a feature film. With funding from 10 partners and the Danish government, the approximately €30 mill project became a reality. The script was written by Director Ole Bornedal, Torben Bech, Jesper Nicolai Christiansen and Tom Buk-Swienty. It was based on Tom Buk-Swienty's books "Slægtebænk Dybbøl" and "Dommedag Als".

The conform, grading and mastering were provided by Nordisk Film Shortcut Copenhagen. The project was shot on Arri Alexa and I worked on the ProRes files using Autodesk Lustre. The grading suite was equipped with a Dolby PRM4220 monitor, and the feature was graded with a Christie projector.
