Old West Dance Battle

Finished march 23,2015

Here's a breakdown video. It's not perfect, but I've tried to go through some of the kinds of details I went after bringing this project into its own.

The biggest thing was making sure the look complimented the hard work of all the talented people that worked on this. I just ice the cake. 

 

Some before and after stills.

Here's the finished video.

Star Wars vs Star Trek

Finished June 21, 2014

Here are some stills that show the process some of these shots went through where I did some relighting stuff. To make the Stormtroopers at the door match, I simulated the color and cadence of flashing that was going on in the dance shots. The mountains outside the window in another shot were too blue, and there was some relighting to do on another shot where they all appear at the door to the studio, but the lights are supposed to be out. The last one from during the dancing shows some dynamic highlight bursting I pulled and tracked to the camera movements in a few shots. Anyway you can click through these and see what I'm talking about.

Fubalous 4: Training Day

This episode was another fun one! The training shots of Flavor Flav and Donnivin Jordan outside called for a high contrast feel. It needed to feel hot, hostile, and epic. One of the ways I accomplish this kind of look is by dialing in a global selection over the whole frame to grab a feathered off portion of just the very bottom of the shadows and another node dialed to just the top of the highlights to punch up the separation and contrast. It allows you to relight the image to excentuate depth and detail. Its a unique look that owes itself to the powerful DaVinci platform. Haven't had this much control since working with stills in Photoshop.
