Some after/before slices from my colour grade for The Prophetess, a short film adaptation of the story by Njabulo Ndebele. The protagonist is sent by his mother to get holy water from the Prophetess, whose wrath and power are legendary. But when things go wrong, Mpho must decide for himself what he believes.

The challenge with this project was turning daytime footage into a night-time look. For some scenes I added flickering candlelight to accentuate the rising tension.
