After 8 years running Skybox Creative as a Design Agency, I decided to switch gears to focus on film.
It was always my true passion but something I put on the back burner for years. Then the time came to make a decision. If I was to make the change and give it 100%, I was going to have to let go of everything I had created and start over.
So that’s what I did.
This film is a celebration of the dichotomy of life... The ups and downs, the monumental and the insignificant. They are what make life interesting and create stories worth sharing.
The fact that everyone involved stayed committed for 12 years of their life to make this film is incredible. Such an awesome project!
Nice! It's interesting how I've used many of these without realizing why... Always good to study technique and the why behind it!
Thanks for sharing!
If you find a good solution, let me know!
The way you shoot it is everything...
I've tested a few color profiles on the Mark III and have found that Technicolor Cinestyle is virtually impossible to grade (and make look good). Cinelook is too high contrast and CINEMA is pretty good. Still need to try Visiontech and Cinetech.
Here are the links I'm referring to:
And from what Philip Bloom told me, FilmConvert is probably one of the best and easiest ways to grade in Premiere although I'm still figuring that out too. :)
I would look into a different song to give it more dynamic energy. I'm not sure the source you got that from but Marmoset and Music Bed are really great!
I just got the OK for a $50k commercial TV spot and have no idea what I'm doing on that level so I can relate for sure! My approach is consulting with professionals and hiring good people so I can execute it in the best possible way.
I realize this is different from creating your own feature or short, but I still think consulting with professionals and people you admire is key!
