“Chris helped us with the editing of over 25 videos and we were blown away by the quality of his work and understanding of what we needed. We had a short deadline and Chris worked efficiently with our team to make sure that the videos were delivered on time. He was able to take complex subjects and create visually pleasing videos which enabled the viewer to understand the video subjects. I would not hesitate to recommend working with Chris and hope we can work together in the future!”

I combined this with bokeh (out of focus point light) overlays that I created by poking holes in a thick piece of card and holding it in front of an LED light while filming it with an unfocused DSLR, with a little handheld motion. Various versions of this footage were graded for added warmth and then layered in, appearing and disappearing behind the RGB bars as they floated past.
Liam’s name and “Director of Photography” title are revealed character by character by the RGB bars. After the other elements fade out in the background, the text animates out with the effect of film stock burning up in a projector.
To tie together the cinematic look I created the sequence in standard 24fps with a cinema-standard 180º motion blur and added monochromatic film grain.
An overall grade was applied to emulate film stock colours – which in conjunction with the RGB colour bars, achieved colour properties of both digital and classic cinema.

• Consistently reiterating the band’s style throughout, contributing to future brand recognition.
