This short film was produced by Cerberus Filmworks to showcase actress Wendy Potter and lay the groundwork for a micro-series in development. It was co-written by Jason Mullis and Wendy Potter, and directed by Jason Mullis. It was entered in a short film contest, and a short “behind the scenes” video was produced alongside the main video.
We shot the film on a Red Digital Cinema camera at BES Studios in Richmond, VA. Gaffer and actor Barry Ellenberger created a lighting rig in the ceiling with a trio of Kino-Flo fixtures, and an HMI outside the window provided the punch. Douglas Bischoff, cinematographer, utilized the RED Raw codec for maximum dynamic range.
Ceridwen Productions handled all Post-Production, including the edit. Proxy files were utilized to speed the process, then original camera files were passed along to the colorist. Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve Studio color grading platform was used to craft the look to match the director of photography’s intent. Finally, the audio was mixed and finished in Adobe Audition.
