MEET YOUR COLORRIST
Davinci Resolve Colorist
Experiencing color is a fascinating phenomenon. I noticed how my films needed that "Cinematic" look and my studies lead me into this technical craft of color grading. Color has a profound impact on the perception of images, and managing the color signal from capture sensor to final screen is now a deep passion of mine!

Why Equipment Matters
EVERY SCREEN LOOKS DIFFERENT
Images change depending on the sceen your using- so seeing an accurate signal from a 10bit Color Monitor ensure you know how your image will look upon delivery.
EFFICIENCY IS KING
Post takes up time, so utilizing high end CPUs & Control Panels allows for nuance and speed with quality assets.
EVERY DETAIL COUNTS
4k & Color Accurate Displays help ensure details aren't overlooked, and delivery matches your intentions.
Working with a Colorist
It all starts with the vision for the piece. What style do you have in mind? What examples can you show?
With some test clips I design a few "Looks" and share those for you to preview and choose between.
Sometimes we don't know what the film / commercial could look or feel like until we try, so some active experimentation can help uncover what the right approach for a piece to ensure it creates the intended effect!
Choosing between several looks
Elevates a Project
FINISHING is the art of using specialized tools and techniques to develop the RAW elements of a video into RICH & REFINED images and sounds to enhance the final viewers' experience.
Through COLOR GRADING we match & master the images to have a particular "look & feel". There is much science and theory on the effect of color and contrast on our emotions, and un-natural color/light shifts take viewers out of the experience. Utilizing this knowledge and our technical understanding of Digital Image Signal Chain, we craft our images to create a desired effect, and overall beautiful final product!
Similarly, with AUDIO MASTERING a technician brings forth the sounds we intend to hear, then creates a pleasing sonic space to house those critical audio elements. Video is 60% Audio. What makes a good piece is consistent engagement through smooth audio quality that never distracts from the experience and adds emotion through appropriate usage of Natural Soundscapes, Spoken Words & Music.
