Supervised and color graded Australian band City of Satellites BMX music video for director Dael Oates. This was my first experience conforming an edit. After spending any amount of time on the Red User forums one will quickly find out that if you're not an editorial house with a specialized pipeline for doing it, Red footage is far from easy to conform. We ended up using amazing piece of software called Automatic Duck which allowed us to bring the Avid edit directly into After Effects.

We also made extensive use of the outstanding After Effects plug in, Optical Flares. It really helped blend the shots together and bring up the production value of the video. From a stylistic point, I plan to use it on every future project I create till the day I die.
