Currently working on remastering a short film from 2002 shot on 35mm. Serious Royal Tenenbaum vibes. The previous master was a BetaSP tape. We scanned a low contrast print at 4k, colored to match, then took it to the next level. Always fun working on these kind of projects. #color #colorist #colorgraders #colorgrading #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #resolve #35mm #film #shortfilm #indiefilm #indie #kodak #kodakshootfilm #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #bmd #cinematography #cinematographer #dp #dop #directorofphotography #royaltenenbaums #arri #arriscan
Back to back music vids w/ the super talented @parksranda. This one for @matthewloganvasquez "Fires Down in Mexico". First time working with DP @matthewcanada. Hope to again soon. Great material to work with. Always a pleasure to work on such creative stuff! #color #colorist #colorgraders #colorgrading #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #resolve #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #bmd #cinematography #cinematographer #dp #dop #directorofphotography #red #shotonred #r3d #musicvideo #matthewloganvasquez #firesdowninmexico
New blog posting is up. Link in the bio. Grading mixed lighting sources is no easy task. The first time you do it can be quite daunting. The biggest take away from this article is not to fight against the way the material was shot. It was lit aggressively for a reason. Go with it. Don’t overthink it too much, but pay particular attention to the lighting sources and make sure they stay consistent throughout. #colorgraders #color #colorist #colorgrading #colorcorrection #blog #website #davinci #davinciresolve #resolve #blackmagic #bmd #blackmagicdesign #commercial #cinematography #cinematographer #dp #dop #directorofphotography #lighting #mixedlighting #heman #skelator #moneysupermarket
Been awhile since I've gotten the pleasure to work with @parksranda. Here is a little preview of his new music video for @atcmusic coming out soon. An aggressive look with some 16mm scanned grain on top for a nice filmic look. #musicvideo #airtrafficcontroller #red #shotonred #redepic #r3d #color #colorist #colorgraders #colorgrading #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #resolve #cinematography #cinematographer #directorofphotography #dp #dop #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #bmd
Make sure to check out @sho_smilf coming to @showtime on Nov 5 starring @frankieshawisag. I had the pleasure of working with Frankie on the dailies for this new series. She's a true talent, both behind and in front of the camera. #color #colorist #colorgrading #colorgraders #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #bmd #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #arri #alexa #arrialexa #frankieshaw #smilf #showtime #dp #directorofphotography #cinematography #cinematographer #boston #dailies
An insiders look at some super talented illustrators for Sheaffer pens. I remember in kindergarten when asked what I wanted to do for a career and my response was "to draw cartoons". That never really panned out, but it's pretty inspirational to see talented artists like this. #color #colorist #colorgrading #colorgraders #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #resolve #alexa #arri #arrialexa #bmd #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #cinematography #cinematographer #dp #dop #directorofphotography #sheaffer #doc #interview
Latest color work for Director @benconsoli and DP @chrisloughran on this great looking piece for Granite State College. Warm, feel good tones that feature some nice, deep midtones to give a very polished look. #color #colorist #colorgrading #colorgraders #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #resolve #alexa #arri #arrialexa #cinematography #cinematographer #dp #dop #directorofphotography #commercial #advertising #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign

Recently had the pleasure of working with director/editor @sean1meehan and DP @adamkerchman for this performance piece. Got a chance to get real creative with some aggressive looks. @michaelbay anyone? #color #colorist #colorgrading #colorgraders #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #resolve #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #c300 #canon #cinematography #cinematographer #directorofphotography #dp #orangeandteal #performanceart
Stumbled across a great link that showcases the prepping and delivery of Dunkirk in 70mm and wrote a quick blog posting about it.
