Last Month I was fortunate enough to work on the documentary Film, "Check It", directed by Dana Flor and Toby Oppenheimer, executive produced by Wren Arthur, Steve Buscemi, and Stanley Tucci. Check it is follows the story of four LGBT gang members in Washington, D.C.
Because this was a documentary that took place over several years, the footage was a mix bag of different cameras and lighting environments. Early on we decided not to do a typical "doc" style color correct, but instead gave the film a hyper real saturated look exaggerating the colors of tobacco and turquoise.
One of my favorite things about coloring is when I can finally get out of my color suite and into a theatre with an actual audience. The Tribeca premiere was great, and it's always fun to screen something you have been working on in front of a large audience. Being a freelance colorist in NYC always means working on interesting jobs, and I look forward to what other fun projects 2016 will bring!
