    Hi guys,

    Here's 'Colony', a gritty little sci-fi short I shot on the F3 a while back, that's just been released on DUST (and generated some, shall we say, "energetic" discussion over there!).



    I think it's a pretty good example of just how much punch the 4:4:4 image out of the F3 can pack, as it's a pretty extreme (and specific) grade I used to create the sense of an alien world.

    It was a seriously tough one to shoot, wildly under-resourced as we were. But an exciting challenge thanks to the range of techniques I had to apply (dry-for-wet, wild exteriors, and studio interiors, complex composites, vfx plates etc. etc.). It was a production that really forced me to stretch myself, and I always appreciate that.

    Here are some screengrabs, and if they pique your interest, feel free to take a look at the finished film.

    Would love to hear people's thoughts.

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Over the years, I have seen you master the F3.

    Beautiful. And I could care less what camera it was shot with. Great work, as usual.

    This is stunning. I’m curious as to what was the budget?

    I don't know the exact figure, but it was REALLY tight. I think it may have been around $4-5k all in. Our lovely production designer Maddie built three of the tents in total. I shot plates of them from multiple angles to allow our VFX wiz to do the set extensions with.
