Web: CRDI de Québec

While working at QuebeComm I met Rabii Rammal, a young director and Antoine Ryan, DP. Together they shot this piece for the CRDI de Québec a non-profit organization fundraiser for children with intellectual difficulties.

The video in a heart warming demonstration on intimacy between a child with intellectual difficulties and the different members of its family and how they discover each other.

I graded the video at QuebeComm’s Montreal office where I also grade LOL and Complex G.  We gave it a true-to-life feel and tried not to fall in a warm feel-good  or  blue depressive look. It was a very basic grade with curves, skin tone secondaries and subtle vignettes here and there.

Web Series: Ouisurf Kooks & Hurricanes

Web Series: Ouisurf Kooks & Hurricanes

Ouisurf is back for another surf adventures. In Kooks & Hurricanes, they teamed up with Honda to travel to northern coasts. In these 3 episodes, they show us amazing surf spots in not so familiar places: Maine, British-Columbia and Rhode Island.

I graded the three episodes on Resolve in my studio following a very different path than what I had done with the previous tv series. Guys wanted to have a more East Coast vibe, more earthy.

I went for some very vibrant greenish blues that really represented how cold the water was. Contrast and sharpness were pushed on portraits the give back some details in the skin tones that fell right in the complementary colors of the water.

The Tofino episodes was darker but full of nice greens brought by the wet forest sections. I really was a fun to bring out the life in the trees and the wooden house.

Here are two episodes:

Music video: Crier tout bas by Coeur de Pirate

Music video: Crier tout bas by Coeur de Pirate

This is a color grading breakdown for “Crier tout bas”, the second single for the album ROSES by Coeur de Pirate.

It was shot on Alexa in 2K proves 4444 by Jessica Lee Gagné and directed by Kevin Calero for Romeo et Fils. The music video is now available on nowness.

Here is a color grading breakdown I did for some shots. Nothing technical but some clone tool effects to remove some unwanted pieces. I used Resolve’s key lock feature on some power windows and copied the content to fill the mask with another part of the image.

Music video: Philippe B “Nous irons jusqu’au soleil”

Music video: Philippe B “Nous irons jusqu’au soleil”

This is a nice music video I graded for Philippe B’s new single “Nous irons jusqu’au soleil”. It a nice piece featuring 10 dogs with theirvery own personality. The video that could, at first, relate to some other pieces like the popular “Island in the sun” by Weezer but goes beyond the cute animal cliche. There is a nice narrative touch in the edit and we understand the relation between the different dogs. We follow the hound from the deep bottom of a cavern to the freedom feel of the open wild. I suggest you watch until the last shot.

The two things I like very much in life are color grading and white river canoe. I like to alternate color grading and canoe sessions as often as possible. So when I was approached by abitibi&co, a new canoe manufacturer, for a grading gig on the beautifully shot images of their web promo, I obliged.

In total, I graded 14 pieces. The main one is a 80 second video in which we discover a group of paddlers through beautiful sceneries. They used that clip to illustrated their moto: Live beyond the bend.

I was happy they decided to publish the videos on VIMEO. The video hosting website is able to keep the very wide aspect ratio. Please watch them full screen! and share!

Music video: Blue Volvo by Loud Lary Ajust

This is a nice little music video I worked on a couple weeks ago. Very low light result shot on Alexa. The deal was to stay as low key as possible while keeping come details.

The piece is part of Loud Lary Ajust‘ s latest album. It was shot in a day by DP Jessica Lee Gagné during a not so cold day of June so the team wasn’t freezing its a$$ in the water.

The footage was graded from scratch in DaVinci Resolve at my studio in July. It was a nice and quick gig. As the shots were captured across the day, water reflections and sky textures weren’t quite matching but some power windows here and there helped a lot.

Here are some before and after:
