Including this years Oscar nominated film, “Crip Camp”, Brian has five Oscar nominated films that he’s excited to be a part of.
“I love the process of taking the filmmaker’s vision, applying some visual polish, and help bring the filmmaker’s interpretation to reality. The process is not about me. It’s about listening to the filmmaker. It’s about bringing the visual loose ends together so that the viewer is drawn into the storytelling. The audience has gotten more sophisticated through the years, and likewise, we as colorists have to rise to meet that challenge by providing the highest quality color grading possible.”
“In the process of making a film, everyone must bring their best. It’s a challenge which is different with each film. It’s that challenge that continues to make me want to rise to the challenge.”
