Color Grading and Correction Reel

Hello everyone! I put together a new coloring reel of a few projects (features, shorts, commercials, music videos and industrial) I have been the colorist on. Hit me up if you need some correction or want a completely stylized look for your project! My rates are on a sliding scale and I can work remotely on any size project if you are not in the Pacific Northwest.

Hello Derek. Great reel. I see you grade in DaVinci and Speedgrade. We have access to both and just purchased the Tangent Elements control surfaces (that will likely go on eBay after we complete the project!). We are finishing up a full-length feature film, "Alarmed" here in the SF Bay area. Very low budget ($100k) and to keep costs down, we are doing a LOT of things we normally would farm out. It is in audio post right now (yes, definitely farming this out) and my editor and I are finishing up the VFX work (Mocha Pro and AE) and will be starting on the grading work next. We both have some experience in grading, so we're not complete newbies. Nether one of us has used either Speedgrade or DaVinci before however (Apple Color and some color work in AE). We're both very much "layer-centric" guys, so the whole "node" route with DaVinci looks pretty awkward, whereas Speedgrade is definitely more our speed, so to speak. Any suggestions before we make the leap into one or the other?? Thanks in advance! Matt
