Jesse’s Girl, in COLOR

Well, corrected color.  Enjoy!


The Future!

January 14, 2010

It’s been a while since I’ve posted.  Sorry about that.

The movie is kinda out of my hands at the moment, because Don is working on color correction and effects, which I know nothing about.  (What is this “red” you speak of?)

Here’s the current state of Asleep with the Angels:

Not bad, eh?  Once the gun shots are done, the movie will actually be a, you know, movie.

That being said, I’ve started work on my next project, Awake.  This will be a smaller production, as you can see by the brand spanking new page on the right, which features the script.  Enjoy!


Movies and Music, Together at Last!

September 2, 2009

I know I promised the first half of the movie two weeks ago, but now I’ve got something better… The Whole Movie!

Okay, okay, it’s not done done, but it’s at least watchable.  Pez’s music really moves the story along.  I can’t imagine the movie without it, now.  (Well, I can imagine it, but I don’t like to.)

Anyway.  There’s still a few things to work out.  Obviously, all of the screens (Shooter’s cell phone, Archie’s laptop, etc.) need to be filled in.  Muzzle flashes and blood splatters need to be added.  The sound mix needs to be evened out (notably, Archie’s dialogue in his house).  And, of course, the color correction right now is of the “color-goes-here” variety.

But, like I said, this version actually looks like a movie.  We’re getting there.


If the embeded video doesn’t work for you, here’s a direct link to YouTube:


Two Things I Know Nothing About

July 18, 2009

I haven’t updated this blog in a while, because post production is a long, slow death march filled with boredom and confusion punctuated by computer crashes and more boredom.

Oh, wait, I’m supposed to say, “Editing is the final rewrite of the story!”

I truly admire those who can sit in front of a computer and fashion a film from raw footage, but it’s just not for me.  Which is why I’m glad Don is around to not only edit, but also color correct.

Color correction, for those of you who don’t know, is the process of refining the images so that they flow together in a coherent way.  As talented as Danny is (which is a very), no one can make every single shot of a film match every other shot.

For instance, in the scene where Angel confronts Shooter and Archie, due to a scheduling conflict, we shot her angle and the guys’ angle several hours apart.  Don is making sure the images appear to be simultaneous.

Color correction also allows for one final pass on the look of the film.  Of course, being colorblind, I can’t really contribute much creatively to this aspect of post production.  I have to trust Don and Danny’s judgement.  Which isn’t hard at all, since they’re both very good at what they do.

In other post production news, we have a composer, named Pez Wilson.  He was recommended by our Archie, JohnMark.  He’s already written several music cues.  This weekend, the three of us will get together to do some spotting.  More on that later.

In the meanwhile, enjoy some examples of color correction.  Fascinating.
