Colorist Demo Reel – Before & After

Pictures. Perfected.

We could show you a series a beautiful images but you wouldn’t know what we did (or didn’t do) to these images. Color grading is often like special effects… the best work is the work you never notice.

Instead, we are proud to present to you our Before / After reel. Some are simple corrections, a few are heavy-duty grades or specialty looks. All these images were graded or corrected in Apple’s Color  – some projects were originally edited on Avid, a few of those were sent back to Avid for fiishing, but most stayed within the Final Cut Studio ecosystem.

If you watch this video full screen (by clicking the little X icon next to the Vimeo logo), make sure you set “Scaling Off”.

Length: 1’59”          Version: Winter 2009                     Original Score: Kevin Mazur, New Dawn Productions
