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.

Proud Mary trailer is out! Two months of coloring dailies and long nights all while doing commercial work during normal business hours. Lensed by the incomparable @dan.laustsen. Looking forward to seeing this one when it comes out. #color #colorist #colorgrading #colorgraders #colorist #davinci #davinciresolve #sony #sonyscreengems #screengems #tarajiphenson #ProudMary #proudmarymovie #cinematography #cinematographer #danlaustsen #babaknajafi #dp #directorofphotography #dannyglover #dailies #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #bmd
New blog posting. Link in bio. Lessons from @defiantones on @hbo. "Deadlines are the enemy of creativity. You never know when you're going to be inspired and what's going to inspire you. You can't put a time limit on creativity. We're artists. We're just being creative, man. Shut the fuck up and let us do our job". - Dr. Dre #color #colorist #colorgrading #colorgraders #colorcorrection #hbo #thedefiantones #drdre #nwa #blog #website #creative #jimmyiovine #interscoperecords #brucespringsteen #johnlennon #filmmaking #hustle #cinematography #cinematographer #dp #directorofphotography
A new one for SimpliSafe home security. Trying to get that Game of Thrones vibe going. Two completely different worlds that create a really fun contrast that works quite well. #color #colorist #colorgraders #colorgrading #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #resolve #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #cinematography #cinematographer #dp #directorofphotography #homesecurity #commercial #advertising
A couple years back we wrapped "Game Changers" for director @robimbs. Rob flew in for the session and we spent a weekend setting looks and establishing the overall feel of the movie. I worked mostly unsupervised then he flew back for the final screening in which we tweaked and finessed the final color. The film has been making it's way through the festival circuit and will get official distribution later this month through Hulu, iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play. Congrats, Rob! All the hard work has paid off. #resolve #davinciresolve #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #cinematography #cinematographer #dp #streaming #indiefilm #movies #film #magicthegathering #colorist #colorgraders #color #davinci #amazon #hulu #googleplay #itunes #directorofphotography #colorcorrection #comiccon

New work for Ocean Spray introducing their newest beverage - Mocktails. We worked super hard to maintain a sunset feel throughout while maintaining the cranberries and skies.

This article from Studio Daily discusses how ACES aided in relaying on-set color decisions through the dailies process and how those decisions were implemented downstream for VFX and the final DI.

A recently completed piece for @kimstagram_100 and @rogethat13 for Project Place - a social service agency in Boston. Project Place provides employment and a place to call home for those who have had problems related to poverty, drug/alcohol abuse, mental illness, or other related issues. It's a fantastic organization and I'm proud to have been a part of spreading their message. #color #colorist #colorgraders #colorgrading #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #resolve #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #bmd #boston #alexa #arri #arrialexa #projectplace #dp #cinematographer #cinematography #dırectorofphotography
American Gods is all about contrast. It's heavy. Really heavy. That combined with sharpening and some slight desaturation makes for a nice gritty, aggressive piece. Spectacular grade by @davehussey.

Congratulation to Karen Allen (Indiana Jones, Animal House) with her directorial debut at the Cannes' Short Film Corner. We colored "A Tree. A Rock. A Cloud." together last fall. Always good times with black and white. #color #atreearockacloud #blackmagic #resolve #blackmagicdesign #davinciresolve #davinci #colorist #colorgraders #colorgrading #colorcorrection #blackandwhite #dp #dırectorofphotography #cinematography #cinematographer #bmd #ursa #ursamini #dng #carsonmccullers #indiefilm #indie #film #cannes #cannes2017 #cannesfilmfestival #karenallen
New work for team Titleist. Always a pleasure working with these guys. Over the years we've developed some pretty fun looks. Very appreciative for them trusting me and willing to go outside the box. #advertising #commercial #dp #cinematography #cinematographer #dırectorofphotography #golf #titleist #red #shotonred #r3d #color #colorist #colorgrading #colorgraders #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #resolve #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign
Some incredible imagery for the latest @eversourceenergy commercials. Fantastic work by the team at Boathouse with @kimstagram_100 and @rogethat13 leading the charge and putting together a great piece. This particular shot we worked really hard on to maintain as much detail as possible while keeping the dark, pre-sunrise feel. We popped a little bit of color back into the horizon to give it a little extra polish. #color #colorist #colorgraders #colorgrading #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #resolve #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #alexa #arri #arrialexa #cinematographer #cinematography #dp #dırectorofphotography #commercial #advertising
New spots for New England Baptist Hospital out now. Can't beat that nice cyan/blue lighting playing off the skin tones and rim light. #color #colorist #colorgraders #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #resolve #alexa #arrialexa #arri #commercial #advertising #dp #dırectorofphotography #cinematography #cinematographer #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign
Two years ago I was approached by @edamario from @redtreeprod to color a passion project of his. Eric took it upon himself to write, produce, and direct a PSA for a rare disease that effects his family everyday. Today is TSC Global Awareness Day. Spread the word and help others learn more. #color #colorist #colorgraders #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #cinematography #cinematographer #dp #dırectorofphotography #psa #tsc #iamtsc #juliannemoore #commercial #alexa #arri #arrialexa
New work for DeWalt coming from the great crew at @sleekmachine. Edited and finished by @dshweez. Some great looking footage from a ranch in Texas where we embraced an old western feel with some nice warm tones. #colorgraders #colorist #color #colorcorrection #texas #bullriding #commercial #advertising #dp #dırectorofphotography #cinematography #cinematographer #davinciresolve #davinci #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign
