More Laurels for Wastage

Wastage will be featured in the 2011 Scribendi literary magazine for undergraduate honors students. Scribendi is the official arts publication for the Western Regional Honors Council and features Essays, Poetry, Short Fiction, Visual Art, Photography, Digital Art, Film and Music by students.

Scribendi is the second undergraduate organization to feature Wastage so hopefully I can start entering it into some real film festivals soon. Upon hearing of its acceptance I immediately cut a new version featuring new color grading using Magic Bullet Looks and updated credits at the end of the film. Check out some before and after pictures of the color grading process. Most of the changes compensate for my crappy lighting but the last scene gets a brand new look to it.

Some subtle differences but they really make a difference in the mood. Before the grading some of the images looked a little too "Live Studio Audience," and now they match the rest of film with some added drama. Click below to check out these images and more in motion.
