Before/After stills from my grade of the Palapa stage aftermovie. Working on these scenes took me back to my first time at Fusion Festival in 2015, and felt like putting the age of festivals in a big ziplock.
The first challenge was to bring all the mega colourful and multicam images together into the same aesthetic world. The second was to grade the heavily compressed H264 source footage, which was like spreading cold butter on fresh bread — only possible with lots of patience. Anyway, it came out pretty tasty.
