Color Grading for Indie Filmmakers
How Color Grading Elevates Your Project
If you think color is just about twisting knobs and pushing buttons.... you're right. But those knobs are for the important purpose of making an image that effectively tells the story. Here's some details about what I do.
Correction & Matching
Footage came out looking greenish? Shot scenes on different days, camera, or lighting conditions? This includes taking a LOG format image and apply transformations to make it look "correct".
Grading is the creative process of applying a look to footage. This is the creative storytelling part of the color process: making sure that the eye is drawn to the important parts of an image, and using color to help create an emotional experience for the audience. This can also include re-lighting, film emulation, VHS effect, and other looks.
Paint & Compositing Effects
Swap out a sky. Replace a phone or TV screen. Key out a green screen. Paint out a boom pole. Basic retouching to improve the image!
