Grading “Collide”

At the moment I’m in the process of grading my new short Collide.

I’m using a lot of LUTs emulating film stock and really pushing the footage shot on the BMCC. (as you can see in the pic below)

My main influence for the look and feel of “Collide” is this 2010 music video: Say You Don’t Want It by One Night Only.

There are several sequences in “Collide” which have been shot in homage to my favorite music video:

Here is a shot - reverse shot from one of the sequences in the video compared to my own sequence-

Meanwhile with every sequence graded I make a new discovery which makes me want to go back and start again. I’m very happy with the results so far.

Filming Report: Neath Port - GoPro

In sunny July, Wales, I was down in Neath Port Talbot Recycling to assist in the surveying of a pipe line fix feet under ground.

Working alongside BA Safety, I was recruited as the video expert, capturing the surveillance using a GoPro Hero 3.

Richie Blake, who works for Wessex Water, recruited me due to my expertise on shooting with the GoPro and my understanding of digital cinematography.

The pipe line was particularly dangerous and claustrophobic.
