STAR WARS CELEBRATION 2017

Sean got out of the darkroom for a week and joined Lucasfilm's video production team to cover the biggest Star Wars convention to date. 25,000 steps a day carrying an FS7 is tiring, but interviewing the best fans in the universe about what Star Wars means to them made it more than worthwhile.  A few highlights include following Mark, Harrison and George on stage and hanging backstage, 10 feet from the John Williams led orchestra provided permanent goosebumps. Director Ian Bucknole, Producer Trish Brunner & the rest of the crew were a blast to work with.

FROLIC N' MAE

Back in collaboration with Danny Madden and the Ornana gang.  We provided the color grade and a couple dozen vfx cleanup and composite shots for this incredible short film which received a nice write-up via Short of the Week. We premiered the film up at Skywalker Ranch with Pete Horner, the film's talented sound designer.

The color suite and I also made it into the behind the scenes video:

INTERVIEW WITH AMERICAN CINEMATOGRAPHER

 Sean, Joel, Chris & Dave

Sean, Joel, Chris & Dave

Sean is honored to have been part of American Cinematographer's "Star Wars" special edition. The team was interviewed on the image-making process for Star Wars Rebels and got to nerd out a bit more in depth than the usual "it's basically photoshop for moving images" when talking about about the color grading process on the show.  We touched on our use of lighting references, the advantages of being a 3D animated show, and various ways we gnar up the CG-perfect image through adding sobel edges, halation, grain and more, ultimately lending a more live action sensibility through the lighting and grading of the show.
