Since going out on my own this last year, I have had the great experience of working on many amazing & different types of projects, I have done color on some commercials, HDR Netflix series, doc features, doc series, and even did some VFX work on some network TV shows. But one project in particular stands out.
The is a feature film called ‘Anya’. This project stands out most to me, because I had the task to “do it all”. I was taking on the role of a whole post house. I would conform the project, color, do some VFX work, take care of renting out rooms at different facility’s, creating and overseeing the DCP process and eventually finish things off with some theatrical screenings.
All of these processes are not new to me, but I never had to try to do it all by myself, I was always surrounded by a team of co-workers who would collaboratively come together to create a final product within a full scale post house.
In the summer of 2018, I was contacted by filmmakers Carylanna Taylor and Jacob Okada. Once hired to work on the film, I would spend many hours on the phone, or Skype sessions, to discuss the process of helping their film come to life. An added hurdle was that throughout the beginning of the post process we were also working remotely as they were based in Florida until the end of the summer. But despite all of this, they gave me the chance to prove that I could pull this off. Throughout the whole project they were so great, both professionally and personally. And couldn’t have asked for a better team of people to work with for what would be my first full on feature.
I’m very proud of the final product and can’t wait for the rest of the world to see it in 2019.
