As a photographer, I would naturally tend to sequence some portraits of a beautiful girl and make a movie out of it. It usually works quite well, aesthetically speaking. But it becomes more of a music video than a movie. For this one, I've tried to keep a better storyline than before - it was, of course, more tedious!

Technically speaking, this is my most advanced color grading to day, and my first complete test with After Effects (no plugin). As usual, my goal isn't to make it obvious, but just to achieve what I have in mind - taking into account what I shoot in reality.

CHOOSE THE DIVX VERSION OR DOWNLOAD if you want to watch it in better quality. There's a DRAMATIC difference with the regular online display on DA.

Je le maîtrise vraiment très bien et il déborde de VST.
Le seul (minuscule) problème est que je ne suis pas du tout pianiste ;p

Je viens de terminer une nouvelle instru.:boogie:
En tant qu'artiste, tant que je suis indépendant (que le résultat dépend uniquement de mon travail) c'est le bonheur.
Les problèmes interviennent quand il s'agit de travailler en équipe (acteurs, chanteurs, assistants pas assez fiables, compétents ou pire, qui ne partagent pas du tout ta vision).:no:
J'imagine bien le parcours derrière ta superbe galerie :aww:

Just becouse Patricia is the main actress here i must say is an awesome movie, her smile is priceless, besides that, i liked a lot the red dress, is a change for all the colors you used in your previous movies... awesome output you had here with this theme you used, and the end was great...

I was talking about that with my friend, we look the film together and we said that the color work was amazing, the contrast of Patricia's clothes and all the BG, makes an awesome output, and the best part was the end, we really liked this one, but you edit the colors en After Effects or you use some special lighting setting?

I've done it in AfterEffects and it was rather painful.
There will be soon an easier solution for this, though :)

Better then, easy solutions with same results is great... but the output looks like you do it really easy... im trying learning some after effects but works keeps me busy, ill try when i get my vacations...

The girl dressed in red with umbrella, those little black creatures and I think she had headphones on. From one of your photo-series.

@04:38Beautiful! There's so much magic in this movie and it's not only visible at the end in these little, black creatures. It's really felt from the very beginning, from the first time she smiles and waves her hand.:love:
But still I feel the strong loneliness here... there are no people for her to spend time with, to share her dreams or imagination with - only these creatures...
