Burbank-based AlphaDogs Post Production announced they are working on the new mun2 Hispanic celebrity reality series "Welcome To Los Vargas." In the 13-episode series, audiences get a behind-the-scenes look at the life of retired three-time World Boxing Champion, Fernando Vargas, and his wife of 20 years, Martha, and their four children. The series airs Sunday evenings at 9 p.m. EST/8 p.m. CST on mun2, the leading Hispanic entertainment cable network.
Having worked with the network before, AlphaDogs welcomed the opportunity as the post-house of choice for another mun2 show. Lead colorist and CEO of AlphaDogs, Terence Curren is handling the color grading and finishing using the Avid Symphony Color Correction toolset. Shot entirely outside the studio environment, Welcome To Los Vargas includes a wide variety of indoor and outdoor shooting locations. Raw footage of this nature comes with imbalances in color along with problems of underexposed and overexposed footage. Matching all of this to create a seamless experience for the viewer is a real challenge that the Alpha Dogs team specializes in handling.
With over more than years of experience, Curren has a keen eye and sense for setting the tone and look that's specific to the genre. "When it comes to working with raw footage in reality television it's important to balance the color in a way that won't interfere with the intended look for the show," said Curren. "It's critical to not only make the picture look good, but that you are careful not to lose the true representation of the characters and the story that's being told."
Chroma keying was also used to give up-close interviews a seamless look. Avid Symphony's Universal Mastering features allowed AlphaDogs to meet the wide array of media deliverables while staying on time and within budget.
For over a decade, AlphaDogs has been making clients feel at home by providing top-notch post-production with a personal touch. Welcomed as part of the team, clients work in a consultative environment with the artists, making the post-process a little less intimidating. Curren comments, "Our motto at AlphaDogs has always been great post with a personal touch. Clients enjoy being part of the creative aspect of the post-process while learning more about the technical side of it all. We strive to make things both interesting and fun."
Welcome to Los Vargas is produced by Anyone Collective and Executive Producers, Pete Salgado and for mun2, Shari Scorca, Director of Programming. For more information visit http://www.mun2.tv/Vargas
