I haven’t posted the projects I graded recently because of the end of the year rush, but now things are finally clearing up and I will start uploading them like I used to do. People are busy and it’s not always easy to get the finished videos with the final music and sound. It’s a good idea to archive your stuff as soon as possible, you never know when you’re going to need it! But today was my
It’s time for a new Color Grading Breakdown! Color Grading Breakdown For this week’s Color Grading Breakdown, I picked a shot from a music video I shot and directed a little over a year ago. I chose this shot because it was done with very basic gear that most of you guys should have acces too: a Canon Rebel T3i, a tripod (optional), a computer, a friend and a street.

My plan was to write a second Color Grading Steps article similar to the one I did for Bellevue Avenue… but things got crazy and I’ve been very busy working on a couple of spots and a documentary feature just before Christmas. Fast forward a few we
I’ve been pretty busy the past two weeks, my apologies for the inactivity! But I had a good reason. SHED, the company I work for as a colorist asked me to direct a Doritos commercial for the Crash The Superbowl Contest. It was an amazing sprint and I didn’t sleep much, but I’m very happy with the end result. We had a blast making this crazy project. Check it out : UPDATE: WE ARE IN THE TOP20!!!! If
This week on the Color Grading Breakdown Series… Zombies!!! I know I know. Halloween’s over. But zombies are popular all year long… no? Color Grading Breakdown As a colorist @ SHED, I am now using Autodesk Lustre and I know a lot of you guys don’t have acces to this software. So this week I wanted to pick a shot I did when I was still grading as a freelancer without the support of a post produ
I finally had the chance to try on set color grading! It all started when director of photography Jean-Philippe Bernier and I were grading the Vallée Duhamel Studio Launch video he had shot. He talked about a software called LiveGrade he had bought for on set grading. JP was planning to test it on a short film he was shooting and producing in two weeks for the ABC of Death contest. He asked me if that would be someth
