The Quest is yet to come!

Nickelodeon’s all-new 13-episode live-action puppet series The Barbarian and the Troll follows Evan, a bridge troll in search of excitement and a place to perform his songs. He finds adventure when he meets Brendar, a female warrior on a quest to avenge an attack on her family.

The show’s co-creators Mike Mitchell and Drew Massey and cinematographer Tyler Walzak, turned to VPA Growth Sponsor Finale Post / Picture Shop Vancouver and Senior Colourist Lorne Wright to handle the grade.

Conform was done in Blackmagic Resolve, where Finale’s finishing team could revise the cut with new visual effects, allowing for a seamless update during colour grading. There were over 200 visual effects shots per 30-minute episode done by VFX Cloud. Producers used Sohonet’s Clearview Flex and iPad Pros for remote grading sessions when required. Sound Post was performed by the talented team at VPA Corporate Member Sharpe Sound.
