    Last time I made a short I dropped it in here and got some sincere feedback. This time I am trying to go more with the supposed spirit of this section and expose the development process of a very amateur short.

    Due to corona virus Marginal Change is out, Dealing is in.

    Being brief, it is a love?connection?friendship? story between a dealer and a client (Blame High Maintenance), where the client gets worse over time and the dealer eventually cuts the client off.

    The script and shotlist (both still being worked on) can be seeing on this folder if you are interested.

    And I have started shooting. No colour grade is final. I'll be putting tests, half baked cuts and other stuff here.

    Feedback is welcome. Also, I have a Dell UP2516D and an iDisplay Pro. The contrast after I calibrate is crazy, which in the past has led me to grading with too low a contrast. I have looked at the video with sound on my phone and it is still pretty intense, but then I look on a different monitor (which I know is rubbish) and there's almost no contrast.

    How do people go about this incredible inconsistency between people's screens? What is the target?

    More progress. Ignore the sound.

    This one is the same, but I did not desaturate the shadows.

    And this one is too extreme and I am not happy with

    I think I like the desaturated shadow look best and will try to match that look in the future.

    Moving forwards, some more shooting and a temp assembly of shots to see how it goes. Ignore the sound, of course.

    Sound still not finished, but the three phone calls that happen in the short are mostly done. I am now thinking that the second and third phone call should have been shot differently to represent the evolution in the relationship of the characters, but oh, well.

    And more progress, enjoyed the editing. Used a song by a friend. I like it, but as he himself points out, it feels very 2008, so not sure if to keep it.
