So my short film Elle is almost finished. It's in sound design at the moment and goes into grading on tuesday at Terassen. So exited. I already got the first official selection at a festival, but now have to decide where I want it to premiere.
But until I can tell you more, here's the poster for the film!!
I'm in no sense a color grader. I know my way around photoshop and I sort of get DaVinci. But one thing I do know for sure is that I never ever stop being amazed by the difference between the original frame and the one you get after working with it. It is so freaking cool!
Both in still photography and film. Analog or digital. You can do a little or loads. You can change the mood from happy to sad with the same frame, just by changing small parts. So I'm not gonna neither give you a lesson in how or keep telling you something amazing. I just love grading and thank god there are people out there devoting their lives to this! R e s p e c t ! ! !
It's finally here. The video we started back in april. Awesome artist Johanna Hagström wrote this amazing song about her breast cancer back in 2013.
She wrote about the ugly side of it. We had long talks about what video to make.
I had just a few month back lost my mum to breast cancer so maybe it naturally became clear we wanted to make it about the struggle, but the silent one. The private one. The side of it that is too real, but not always the side you show when people are looking. The honset harsh truth.
Because cancer hurts, weather you lost someone or you are the sick one. It hurts!
And people around you tells you: Be strong! You can do it. Together we will win against cancer!
But not everyone wins, not everyone gets to live. Not everyone wants to be strong all the time.
Because it kills and its scary. And it sucks.
We choose to place the story in the laundry room, a place common to everyone. A place where time stands still. That is calm and quiet.
