• ‘Goodbye Mr Mackenzie’ film + trailer

    My remote flame creative studio has been extremely popular. I worked on a number of great commissions last year, one being this labour of love, a film for Glasgow based band ‘Goodbye Mr Mackenzie’. I graded the film and subsequent trailer in my remote studio on DaVinci Resolve, using my Blackmagic grading panel. Mixing real concert footage, archive and new interview footage it was a challenge but very rewarding, combining my love of live music with my passion for colour grading and finishing.
