Day 11: 24 Insights in 24 Days 2018 New Year Marathon
How to #fail when a client asks for a new direction
In this insight we take a look at film emulation gone wrong on project I recently graded in which I used some LUTs and when the client asked for a “more modern” grade I stubbornly built upon this instead of starting again.
Myself and the DOP got quite exicted about a project where we thought we could dive into rich kodachrome vibes.
We spent easily haf a day perfecting our grade and of course the client hated it!
I made a huge rookie mistake at this point. I dived into fixing it and making it look more “modern” by throwing more nodes on top.
I really should have started again and as it’s much easier to show in the form of video check out the insight below I’ll show you why!
