Create a passion piece that tells a cool story
This was a moment we took for ourselves to play around with our RED cameras, experiment with frame rates, lighting, set design, costumes and color palette. This was one of the first pieces Heather directed. The biggest challenge on this one was directing a non actor talent who was actually quite shy on camera. After testing out several scores, we locked the edit and Justin graded this piece multiple times along his journey to becoming a CSI certified colorist. It’s finally perfect.
This is the actual bartender, Michael, from our old neighborhood bar. He sold us on this tale the first time we ordered an old fashioned and we couldn’t get his voice or this story out of our head. Sadly, Sidebar is now an Ethiopian coffee joint.
