rushes from wk.1 of shooting:
Prod. Time To Go
Dir. Rio Contrada
Three different looks for three different time periods; more importantly, the 3 different time frames have very drastic differences in tonal range due to the big shift in the character’s physicality/illness.
The director and I really tried to create a sense of nostalgia and longing. Rio really wanted an all-American feeling to the story, a narrative of celebration through both the earlier energetic years and the more challenging later years.
Although each time frame had it’s own look prepped before hand with 3D LUTs, all these looks were reminiscent of Kodachrome to some degree - warmer and lower contrast.
Really a fun one to revisit the kowa anamorphics and @easyrig
