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. Lots of hard work from everyone involved.

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. A new blog posting now live on my website.

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
New work coming out soon. A great opportunity to go dark and gritty with a nice blue/cyan tint. Also my first attempt at using ACES on RED footage. Some stuff I like, some stuff I hate. But I'm getting to the point where I know the quirks and how to work around them. #color #colorist #colorgraders #colorcorrection #resolve #red #davinci #davinciresolve #redepic #shotonred #blackmagic #blackmagicdesign #advertising #commercial #docustyle #dırectorofphotography #dp #cinematography #cinematographer #r3d
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Here is a spot that just started airing for @avocadosfrommexico. A very clever spot that puts two :15s up against each other that have completely different vibes/looks. At first they appear to be commercials from different brands, but they all tie together in the end. A lot of fun to work on this one.

New blog posting. Link in bio. The Benefits of Spec Work. There is no real set in stone way to approach these situations, you just have to weigh the pros and cons and go with your gut. For the most part, people in this industry just want the best for their project. But ultimately it is a business. And there needs to be some exchange of value. If it’s not monetary, it has to be something else that you can turn in to money in the future. #colorist #colorgraders #specwork #blog #website #colorcorrection #davinci #davinciresolve #cinematography #cinematographer #dp #dırectorofphotography #blackmagicdesign #blackmagic
New work for @angieslist now on air. Nice muted tones to accompany the doldrums of everyday life inconveniences for the people that just don't quite fit in.
