Boarding With Bay *UPDATED*

A new exercise I will be doing in my free time(between feeding the cat and brooding in the halls of my campus) is watching films and trying to tie down the compositions. I'm still a noob on the tablet so I figure it should be helpful.

This first session was centered around the stagings of 2007's genre defining Transformers. Golly, what can I say about the film (insert snarky high nose and equally high brow demeaning/belittling comment here) that hasn't been said....I enjoyed it. Just another experience I would sell 10grams of flesh to experience as a young boy again. ...anyways back to my purpose here to today.

 Speaking soley visually, this film had some very powerful staging, however the editing and cutting is that of a music video at times. This works against it whereas in a film like Bad Boys, it was additive. Anyone that watches films with me knows I'm a lighting nut, and it's there that this film shines. So much so that I decided to add colour. Considering Bay is an acclaimed photographer and I've always been a fan of Mitchell Amundsen's work it just felt like a waste not to. (One Alessandro notes, that it's the contrast driven lighting that when applied to the cgi emulates the cariscuro effect of realism that most cgi driven films shy away from in an effort to showcase the detail work.) Some of these are more successful than others...I decided to get better as I went along. (who knew photoshop could be used like chalk.)

I made a quick video of all the colour thumbs (including the ones I threw away) and I put them in the order they appear in the film. The score mixes the best of the both generations. NOW WITH WIPES AND 3D SEPARATION... Enjoy

hey King, thanks for the comment on my blog; that means alot.

I look forward to seeing your film completed as well; there's an interesting depth to your characters that is conveyed without relying on dialogue, and the piece as a whole is intruiging.

Also, your work is amazing.

Cheers!
