Underground Filmmaking

Sun, 05/12/2013 - 20:00 -- Nick Dager

Berkeley post house Colorflow recently completed final post-production work on Born this Way, a riveting, feature-length documentary from producers/directors Shaun Kadlec and Deb Tullman on the underground gay and lesbian community in the African Republic of Cameroon. Final color grading was done at Colorflow with lead colorist Kent Pritchett working with the two filmmakers to set the final look. It was a challenging process due, in part, to the unusual circumstances surrounding the film’s production.

Documenting a Mosaic of Life

Sun, 03/17/2013 - 22:03 -- Nick Dager

Director/producer Alicia Brauns had a very personal story to tell about her father’s journey from holocaust survivor to well-known surgeon. The documentary-in-progress is entitled Mosaic of Life. To depict that experience and Dr. Jack Brauns’ positive outlook on life, she turned to her favorite cinematographer, Rodney Charters, ASC, CSC. The two knew they would be covering an extensive amount of ground, from inside the infamous camps to the trip through Germany and beyond—in a short shooting time. They had to build their camera package carefully so they chose Canon C300s supported by a fluid head and legs from Sachtler.
