Color grading can also be called color editing, or color work, ‘post processing.’ This is when someone involved in the post-production, or editing, of a movie, takes the raw motion picture footage and corrects the color, giving it a specific mood or feel through color. This demo shows 3.5 minutes of ungraded and graded clips compared side-by-side. You'll be able to compare the color of the clips and see the differences.

Can you figure out how we shot the girl’s reflection in the water with the knife?
For this reel, I used music from the film’s soundtrack created by musicians Moth Vegas, and remixed it to work with the visuals. You can also see the color demo reel I created, comparing clips from 5 of my short films side-by-side.
