I Gotta Color by matt wolfe [cc]

I finally bit the bullet and got some more coloring plug-ins for After Effects. This is my first real trial run with Magic Bullet Colorista II. Plus, it helped that I got to see someone in action coloring their footage, so this is my run at it as well. I actually quite like what Colorista II is able to give me.

Shot at Kraze with the ever enjoyable Kadie. 

BOOM! I filmed her anyway after she got embarrased. 

Shot on a 7D, using Technicolor Cinestyle, colored in After Effects using default color correction processes as well as Colorista II.

New CGM Video by matt wolfe [cc]

Working on a new logo animation for CGM. Got an AE template from Videohive.net and then modified it. Definitely takes away the super long hours and is cheaper than just contracting it out. Is that a plug for Videohive? Meh, first time using them, and it works for me.

Which, in a creative sense, I think is good if you are a project manager/ producer/ editor who has no staff, or a tiny staff, or at least, a staff that's really a JV or B-team. Either way, you still have to make another's labor work for you and your project and your client.

Plus, anything that can get you into someone else's workflow and shake up your own (which leads to making your own workflow better and perhaps streamlined) is a good thing.
