a little thing after hours

Put my new camera to use. Someone asked if I could film their cars and make it look good. Shot at a parking garage around midnight in the nice super hot humid weather. Parking garage and hot temps aren’t a good mix, but what can you do. With this project, I didn’t want to do too much on color grading (ala Magic Bullet Looks). I wanted something subtle, but still looks like it came out of a studio.

The process for this was I edited in Premiere first so that I could get timing with the song. Then I did a very small amount of color grading. The footage that came out of the camera (Panasonic GH2) was already good, but it was a bit overly saturated in certain areas. I used After Effects for the titles.
