APply the 'brightness and contrast' filter to the clip. then go into the clip and you should be able to keyframe the filter. (I don't have my mac in front of me to verify, sorry)
Another way is to use the blade to cut the clip right where it starts to fade. APply the brightness and contrast filter to the darker part, brighten it up a bit and if you fiddle just right you can adjust the brightness seamlessly.
Another cheaters way could be to cut to any B roll or another angle during the fade. Depending on how dramatic it is people may not even notice the difference, or you can make any alterations and they won't see them because they won't be able to remember just how bright it was before.

Thanks for the quick response Skydiver. Yes, I've considered the b/c filter and will probably end up doing that. Just looking for another possibile fix that is out of the norm.
Already considering cutting to some B Roll but we don't have any other angles so I might end up using a photo overlay to cover up the discrepancy.

What I'd do is color correct the darker to match the lighter, then dissolve the two together.. Brightness contrast is not as good as the three way color corrector for this sort of stuff.

Thanks Jim, I'll give that a shot to see. Perhaps I can use both together to get some good results.
