TVC: WIXX 15 sec

TVC: WIXX 15 sec

In the same series of TVC posted earlier, these were also directed by Greg Barth (L’Éloi) for Cossette. I graded them in Resolve and did the online in Smoke.


Dans la même série que le 60 secondes présenté plus bas, cette série de pubs de 15 secondes a été réalisée par Greg Barth (L’Éloi) pour Cossette. J’ai fait la colo dans Resolve et le online dans Smoke 2013.



Pour les crédits complets:

TVC: WIXX Ça bouge!

I got a call from L’Éloi. They were looking for a colorist to work on a tv commercials (Agence: Cossette) for WIXX, a public organization pushing pre-teens to move off their chair and go play outside. For the fist 60 second spot I only did roto in After Effects and keying in Smoke because the grading session was pushed and I had plane tickets booked to attend the NAB. No grading on this one but is was my first paid Smoke job, so I was happy to put my skills to the test.

So here is the first TVC of this series. It was shot on RED Epic on a MILO automated rig. Greg Barth, the director, did most of the comp in AE.

The ones I graded and the making of will come up shortly.

Short: Final Cut MTL NAB 2013 intro

Short: Final Cut MTL NAB 2013 intro

Once a year I produce and direct an introduction short for Final Cut MTL as a teaser for their NAB coverage. This short short was produced with the intention of mixing the heavy gambler universe and über geekery only @fcumtl can come up with.

It was shot on my gool ol’ Canon 7D, edited on Smoke 2013, graded in Resolve and brought back in Smoke for the 3D and masking. One of my for all around Smoke gig. I’m liking it.

Thanks to the guys for their trust. And this is the last time you’ll see me in dressed like that.
