“Christmas in the Smokies” – Color Grade

I just completed the color grade on a feature film and hope for many more opportunities in the future. ‘Christmas in the Smokies‘ was a lot of fun to work on – and quite a challenge. It is a Christmas movie shot in Georgia during the month of May – so exteriors were very green and spring-like. To make it look like December I used various techniques to isolate and reduce the greens, while preserving natural skin tones and giving a wintery look to the overall image.

Here’s the trailer:

NCEL “The Present”

Here is the most recent North Carolina Education Lottery spot that I cut and graded. Great directing and talented actors made this spot a joy to work on. Shot on Arri Alexa, edited in FCPX and graded in DaVinci Resolve 10.

I wish my wedding had been captured like this

All I have is a VHS tape that puts me to sleep every time I watch it! I loved my wedding day – it was the best day of my life. But back in ’96 it wasn’t quite possible to capture the day in a short film style. It certainly is now, and few are doing it better than the fine folks at Caravan.

They absolutely kill it when it comes to documenting your special day.

I edited and graded this piece at the end of 2013.

NCEL “Fast Fingers”

This is a spot I recently edited and graded for the North Carolina Education Lottery.
