Through various scenes the story shows that summer is the time to cherish your friends, explore and go on adventures.
Graded by Head of Colour at Mill Chicago Luke Morrison, Luke explains, “With such a diverse range of shots we wanted to create a look that brought it all into a similar feel whilst maintaining and making apparent the diversity of locations.” Luke’s colour process started by treating each scene separately, and then assessing it as a whole. At the end, adjusting to increase the diversity and to resonate with the audio cues. He explained, "Overall we wanted the look to be impactful with a cinematic quality. I achieved this by pushing contrast into the mids whilst backing off saturation, and keeping the top and bottom end rolled off. The final touch was to treat each shot with film grain. Using different intensities and stocks depending on the footage."
The catchy song the film is set to is 'Cherish' from Jamie N Commons.
