With Covid-19 protocols in place, the trailer for the upcoming feature film Cry Of Silence was shot on a Blackmagic Pocket camera in 4k at the Westover Inn, St. Marys, ON in late October.
Dianna Lynn’s original music, Marionette, performed by her on a grand piano, was the core of the video. It was augmented with footage for the movie.
Two edits were completed, a performance-based presentation, and a movie trailer action piece.
Both edits are quite distinct in look and feel. The performance video is in a film noir black and white style with colour accents, particularly red, on selected shots.
The second video focusses on the predator and colour-grades the material in a high contrast black and white with accents of golds and yellows. Post production was competed with DaVinci Resolve 16 incorporating the original Blackmagic BRAW files.
