How to Break Into a Cinema (short film)

Posted on in video with tags portfolio.

This is a short (22 minute) indie film, which I coloured.

It’s a comedy about a bunch of teenagers who want to break into a cinema so they can have a private late-night screening.

There were some interesting technical challenges:

  • Matching drone footage with a regular camera
  • Dynamic range issues in interior shots
  • Day-for-night corrections
  • Night-for-day repair (pick-up shot filmed after sunset)

The film is now available on pay-per-view; here’s the trailer.
