Lost in Your Eyes

I was given a large very bright room with white walls and asked ‘can you make this look dark and moody?’. I was also not allowed to use any haze, which is a common technique of brightening the foreground and darkening the background. To achieve this look I used allot of Dedolights, along with Anova light panels, which were all flagged off and directional. I also used allot of diffusion¬† because using such directional light is very harsh and the director wanted a soft – almost vintage feel.

I knew from the offset that the grade would be very important for this video. I added false light streaks to emulate haze, I darkened that background as much as I could and I even added a ‘La La Land’ inspired spotlight, midway through the video. All grading was done using DaVinci Resolve.
