Colourist


SCROLL DOWN

Colourist



FROM CELLULOID TO PIXELS

Beginning as a trainee colourist at The Film Unit (which eventually became Park Road Post Production) I cut my teeth transferring 5.5 million feet of rushes for The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.  Seeing the evolution of image capture over the years change so much and so rapidly was an interesting thing to witness.  

While working at Hocus Focus I graded 4 seasons of Helt Perfekt (40 episodes) for TV Norge as well as feature films, short films, commercials and other TV series.  I graded many different types of footage ranging from RED and Alexa through to Canon DSLR and GoPro footage.

Just another day in the office for top downhill skier Aksel Lund Svindal, and World Rally Championship (WRC) driver Andreas Mikkelsen. The two champions met up in the Southwest of Norway for a race to the bottom of the mountain, burning rubber and jumping over road gaps to catch a departing ferry.

Post Production

Post Production EXPERT

Four years in broadcast television followed by 15 years in the film post production industry has given me a great overview and understanding of the ever evolving processes.  As a colourist beginning work on 16mm and 35mm images straight off a telecine to working with the latest digitally captured images from the likes of the Red, Alexa or Phantom cameras, I have gained a deep understanding of techniques for television and cinema.

Having an understanding of both offline and online editing has enabled me to help design and create workflows for myself and clients that are catered to that particular projects needs.  I don't just see myself as an operator but also as a coordinator for the post production workflow.

GOING ALL IN

Expanding ones talents in an ever evolving industry is a must.  And I'm no exception.  When I can I do some on-set filming and capture behind the scenes images.  


GS Bildeler - Behind the scenes

Smallfilm shot a James Bond style commercial for GS Bildeler just south of Oslo in February 2014. I was on hand to shoot what went on behind the scenes on set and in post. I then graded and onlined the BTS film.

As well as the video I also shot stills and created a multi touch book for the iBooks that the client was able to use as a marketing and promotional tool.
