This is a project created in total freedom. Two short movies produced to show the talent of two young actors taking place in that same place at the same moment. One is a swimming coach, the other is a pro swimmer.
Both movies were shot on RED Epic by Alexandre Lampron and directed by JP Garoute who also signed the editing.
The color grading was done on ProRes 4444 files created in RedCine with RedLogFilm gamma. Everything was graded and exported as UDH masters in DaVinci Resolve 12. It was a great project to put the beta (yep, I was living on the edge) to the test.
There was a huge amount of daylight coming in almost every scene, expect for the shower scene. The blue dominance in the set helped to make it blend in. Skin tones had to be brought back but the 12bit nature of the media kept a lot of depth to make it possible. The final is very two-tone movie with a cold vibe to it. I’m quite please with the back and forth between the office and the locker room. There come out as different but united in the same environment.

After working on the Reebok TVC I was asked by DP and producer Jean-Philippe Bernier to work on a short movie directed by Ara Ball. Produced by Les Enfants Terribles, this short movie titled “Le Pédophile”.
The movie is about revenge and acts of abuse happening in two different eras: the 80s ant the 2000s. Ball really had an interesting approach to this hard subject.
For this gig I did a first grading on the Resolve station at PMT because they have a nice and calibrated Christie DCI compliant projector. We did a first approval for the P3 version then exported the DCPs for the screening. A second session was schedules in the DCI room to convert the DCP-ready master to REC 709. I used a P3 to REC709 I created to get 90% on the job done then did the remaining of the job by hand.
Then I went back to my home setup to do the online and versions for TV, web and promo.
Here is the trailer:
Here is my new demo reel. It’s edited with bits of the latest projects I did this year. Most of the were graded in Resolve and SpeedGrade at ilovehue, Looklabs or other clients post houses.
You’ll find part of tv series, tv commercials and feature film I graded. If you want to see more you can browse my website or just write to me and ask for more.
HOT DOG is a comedy written and directed by Marc-André Lavoie and produced by Orange Media. It stars Rémy Girard, Paul Doucet, and Éric Salvail in it’s first role ever. It was shot by DP Alexandre Bussière on Alexa in ProRes 4444 last summer. I’m now grading the final edit for August 9th release.
The movie tells the story of the 3 owners os Saucibec, a sausage factory, who are trying to find out who deliberately put a tooth in one of the sausage package.
