    Was watching the Graham Norton show this evening & Mumford & Sons came on. I don't know too much about video production, but what do you call the effect/style it was shot in?

    Nice - thanks! Is there a timing effect in use as well - lower frame rate or something?

    Just looks like a pretty wide open aperture, increased contrast with decreased saturation. Not really any effects per se. Maybe a little change to the color curves or something too

    There's a coupe things going on. If you view the first few seconds of the clip, the wide shot with the audience, the aspect is 16x9 but when they cut to the first shot of the band's performance, it's shot in more of a "cinemascope" look, probably 2.35:1, which makes it very film-like. You can tell this by the black bars on the top & bottom. They may be even shooting at a different frame rate as well. Along with the color treatment it makes for a cool look. That could be a music video just off of that performance.

    It almost looks like it was done with DSLR (or their video equivalent) and not broadcast video cameras.

    Otherwise, looks like stuff you can pull off in Adobe Premiere.

    I don't see any timing effect tells...

    Other then there are some slow creep dolly moves. Which can definitely seem like a timing effect..
