tv series: Patrice Lemieux 24/7

tv series: Patrice Lemieux 24/7

This was a quick but exciting project. Patrice Lemieux 24/7 is a 10-episodes original series for Super Écran, a French-Canadian movie Network. This is their first original series.

Through the 10 episodes, we follow Patrice Lemieux, a well known Canadian hockey player that represents all the pre-made ideas and cliches you’ve know about hockey players. Built as a faux-reality show, each episodes let us follow Lemieux and it’s family’s not so ordinary day-today life.

The show, produced by KOTV, was shot by Pat Morin on Sony F55 in HD SR LT. Everyday, the shot were converted to DNxHD with a LUT I built for the show. As the show had to be graded on Mistika at Slik, I didn’t have the tools to create 3D LUTs in the station so I used LightSpace CMS and graded a plate over their LUT templates. It was then translated to a .3DL for the dailies created in Resolve and to an .itx for quick grades in Mistika.

The final look is a rich but true to reality render of the set. The director wanted to stay on the thin line between reality tv and fiction. So contrasts were pushed a little more than usual and skin tones were brought toward some pinkish hues.

This was my first full gig on Mistika. I had done commercials and graded a tv series but, on this one, I had to do the online too. So, all the credits, overlays and bumpers were added in the same session as the grading. We were also able to do most of the VFX and comps in the Mistika. We often had to hide a logo, remove a mic pole or replace a sign. It all went smoothly.

I can’t put a whole show but here is a teaser:

Music video: Foxtrott “Driven”

Music video: Foxtrott “Driven”

I was approched, back in december, by 1one to grade this music video for Driven, the first single on Montreal electro-pop artist Foxtrott.

This rhythmic dance video is the result of for different shoots: two in studio including one shot on green screen and exterior shoots. The result is a very poppy edit that couldn’t suit the song better. It was directed and edited by Kevin Calero. It was graded on DaVinci Resolve from the RED footage.

Here are some stills

Music video: Fred Pellerin – Plus tard qu’on pense

C’est toujours un plaisir d’être appelépour un projet sur lequel on espère travailler. Quand j’ai vu le nom de Fred Pellerin sur la liste des clips subventionés par MuchFact j’espérait de tout coeur pouvoir travailler sur le projet. D’une par, parce que je suis un fan de cet interprète unique, et deuxièmenent, parce que j’adore travailler avec Patricia Beaulieu, la réalisatrice du projet.

Le clip pour la chanson Plus tard qu’on pense a été tourné, comme le précédent, dans la municipalité de St-Élie-de-Caxton par Frédérique Jouin. Deux atmosphères on été créé: un chaleureux et doré pour l’intérieur, avec les dorures et les mécanismes d’horloges, et un plus froid et vaporeux pour les extérieurs. Les plans larges des forêts viennent admirablement s’opposer au plans serrés des mécanismes de montres.

L’équipe créative avait bien fait son travail. Plusieurs jours avant la session d’étalonnage chez PMT, la réalisatrice m’a envoyé le look book de référence qui fut utilisé au tournage. Il a été assez simple d’arriver au résultat escompté.

Voici quelques exemples de looks créés pour le clip:
