The simplest way to make those sales?
show the great work you've done for others before

and what you could easily do for them now.

Having a pro grade won't fix everything,
but it will give you an unfair advantage.


Think of it as much as a sales tool,
rather than an operating expense.


And with Grade Club, it's now more affordable than you might imagine.

The frankly stupiD G.C. Guarantee

Whether it's 30 minutes or 30 days after you sign up, we want you to be pleased as pie that you've joined the club.

The thing is - you're pre-paying. How can you tell for sure that we're going to get along?

If we're going to wine, dine, and ride off into the sunset of success together?

We're confident that you'll not want to go back to How You Used To Do Things. So confident that if you decide it's not for you after completing your first project - simply let us know.

This works both ways. As I'm sure you've had in the past, some business relationships don't work out.

It's no fault to either side. If we feel it's not a good fit, we'll say.

In either case, we'll thank you for your feedback, refund you in full and part ways with a friendly handshake*.

(*Handshakes may be virtual. Internet and everything)

Grade Club Isn't for Everyone

Grade Club Isn't for Everyone

It's ideal for you if you are:

  • a producer or video production agency

  • regularly producing 2-10 films a month

  • destined mainly for online use

  • happy to work remotely

It's probably not for you if you:

  • want to attend grades in person (although remote streamed reviews are available on the higher tier)


  • are mostly doing work for TV & theatrical release (I'd always recommend these be done in strictly controlled environments, where everyone's looking at the same screen)


  • do HDR work - It's relatively easy for freelancers to offer HDR. It's also incredibly easy (and common) for HDR to be done badly because their setup isn't correct.

Book a quick call here and let's see if we're a fit. There'll be zero pitching - promise.

  • "Mike grades everything I produce. He has an artist’s eye, which for me is crucial to understanding colour and doing the job well. I feel the fact that he is a talented illustrator and painter in his own right does give him that little edge. Amusing and fun to work with. Will always be the first person I call for the job until one of us dies."

Always open to feedback, and worked brilliantly with any notes that were sent back. I look forward to working with Mike on my next project. Highly recommended!"
