This is my color grading demo put together from bits of feature, shorts, commercials, music videos and tv series projects I graded in 2015 in DaVinci Resolve, Mistika and Speedgrade.
This demo doesn’t contain before/after shots or grade breakdowns because I find this technique is overrated and misrepresent the work of the DPs I work with. If you want to see breakdowns in which I show technical how-to you may have a look at my VIMEO feed and my website: www.ilovehue.net
For work inquiries, you can contact me via the contact form on my website too. I’m available for remote, local, on set and worldwide grading gigs.

You can find information about the various projects included in my demo in my resume.
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.
