Control or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And To Look Good Running.
In an attempt to control her life, Tina begins to routinely film herself. Control is the story of a young woman who wants to be perfect.
I had great pleasure grading this short film together with director Henning Rosenlund and cinematographer Annika Summerson.
This story interested me, since it reflects how social-media creates people who are possessive about their appearance.
We created two main looks for the film:
1. An organic filmic look for main part of the film. We also added a subtle amount of Kodak Vision3 filmgrain to these images.
2. A home video look for when Tina films herself in different situations. We overexposed, added convergence errors and a lot of sharpening to create the camcorder feeling.
I´ll post a teaser as soon as it´s released.
