26.04.2014: "THE KING AND QUEEN OF HALLOWEEN" - SHORT FILM GRADING



Kids love Halloween, but sometimes mischief can get a bit out of hand.
This is something that two boys in this movie find out when they destroy Halloween decorations in the wrong garden.

So Trick or Treat respectfully kids, or pay the price.

I had the pleasure to grade this short that was shot in the UK by a Norwegian DOP Carl Christian Raabe.
The directors and DOP wanted to recreate the look of the horror movies from the 80s.
We are talking about saturated colours, especially for the night scenes to get that old fashion horror film blue moon light.
I used Filmconvert get add a bit of low-fi texture to the images too.

The sound mix for this short is currently being completed.
The movie will be sent out to different festivals during the summer / fall of 2014.
