I offer customized productions of visual effects, macro fluid art and anything experimental which has to do with colors and motion. Clients get access to all my visualization methods and a library of demos and styles to start from. I use and extensive arsenal of colors, fluids, pigments and powders for R&D, artistic research and production. Meanwhile, I create a substantial part of paints myself. Most of my images arise on paper, but I also work with petri dishes, fish tanks, wooden plates and much more.
Shooting in Raw is a must to capture the maximum detail and dynamic range. I use a RED DSMC2 Helium and provide images in 8K DCI with 16-bit color depth. These specs offer plenty of options for post processing, plus the freedom to finish in whatever resolution needed. My macro lens collection covers different focal length and reproductions scales. I use everything from 12 mm wide angle macro to 180 mm close up in reproduction scales up to 5:1 microscopic magnification.
A lot of my clips are recorded as a static top shot, however I also use 4-axis motion control and powerful light fixtures on set to give my shots impact and depth. Fluid Art on the macro scale is an interdisciplinary task, asking for technical precision and creativity. Every images is unique and can’t be reproduced the exact same way twice.
Processing 8K in post production is demanding, but this is the place where the images really come to life. To handle heavy color grading tasks and video retouching in 8K natively, I use a 36-core dual Xeon Workstation from HP, dual NvidiaTitan RTX Graphics and a 200 TB Thunderbolt 3 Raid for storage and backup. To squeeze out maximum performance and maintain a snappy system lifting complex nodes trees, I’m on Linux with DaVinci Resolve. But I also offer Adobe workflows upon request.
Feel free to touch base with me and discuss your requirements. I’m happy to guide you through my workflow, from R&D to production and post processing. Let’s create the images of tomorrow. Images which trigger metaphors and carry the deeper structure of visual storytelling. Images with outstanding vibrancy, huge dynamic range and 3D-pop from the richest color palette you can imagine.
