Deer Woman Child
As a year long project, Deer. Woman. Child had a production cycle that required shooting in all 4 seasons – meaning the colour grading was done in real time, as the edits were being developed.
This film is extremely stylised and uses landscapes and stunning vistas as “chapter” headings. Allowing a fantastic opportunity to grade a variety of footage types. The film uses colour as a means to express the highs and lows of the character, drawing inspiration from many visual sources, Gabrielle was keen to explore a variety of expressive looks – ranging from extremely dull and lifeless to hyper real and fantasy esque. Some scenes required precision grading with a scalpel, while others took more of a sledgehammer approach. No two scenes were the same in this film.
