Gotta say I'm always excited to see what's goin on in Scott's videos, but this one went above and beyond my expectations. This one needed to feel cold and middle-of-nowhereish. I went with a little more amber tone to the highlights to balance things out and was pretty happy with the results. I think I was inspired by DeLorean shots from Macklemore's Thrift Shop. These aren't nearly as green but I think that's where the idea for something less blue came from. 

Here's a ton of before and after shots because I was fascinated by the transformation. Hope you'll check em out. This was shot on a mix of Phantom, Red, Canon, and Gopro cameras. All of those profiles are extremely different and sometimes can take a lot of work to get matching. So while the video seems random and coincidental not a minute of it is. That's the magic of it all I guess. Enjoy.
