Web: Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Every time I work on a project with ValléeDuhamel it’s a lot of fun. This time it was to recreate the creative environment enabled by the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 pen as an artist would see it.

Shot on Epic Dragon by DP JP Bernier, the 45 spot is all real hands, objects and gestures … no 3D models. Il was edited and comped by Josh Sherrett @ Mile End Workshop who used some morph and comp tricks to fuse the take together.

The grading  gig consisted of giving the scene a very pictural and analog look while playing on the edge of the cartoon universe. I had to match the various background, match the color of the closely tinted objects and fill mask quite a few flying objects.

That’s when Resolve becomes really handy. I was able to give a node for nearly object and animate them independently. The non-linear nature of the node tree also enabled me to efficiently key some hard-to-get colours.
