Mr. Bellpond's Masterpiece wins 2 Student Emmys!

Hi folks! 

It's always thrilling to do great work. Bellpond was only my second project in DaVinci Resolve. It was exciting for me because it would be an opportunity for me to really take some artistic liscense with the images.

The director, A. Todd Smith contacted me early describing the look he wanted with some samples from films like Jean-Pierre Jeunet's "A Very Long Engagement" which uses color in specifically stylized ways to excentuate the production design and build on the emotional performance.

Color is usually imperceptable. Like great sound work, it ties together the constructedness of a film- the clips and lighting, and varous moments that all come together to make this cohesive fictional moment the audience buys as playing out presently before them. It should be invisible... yet it can profoundly influence the emotional beats in the story. That made it both the challenge and the joy of working on this film

Here's a BYU News report on it!

A great video, and highly reminiscent of Jean Pierre Jeunet! Thanks!
