The Color Palate Of "LAPSE"

LASPE is the story of three lives, three time periods, and three states of mind and emotion.

As the Director of Photography, Christopher Camp shot our film with the supernatural-like ability to capture precisely what I pictured in my head as the Writer/Director, allowing for the creative breathing room to tease out and embellish the colors, tones, and atmospheric temperatures in post, bringing LAPSE to life.

Check out some examples of the different faces of LAPSE...

The Lost Childhood

A painterly wash of antiquated colors, like golds and teals, were carefully applied to the highlights and midranges. This, combined with a subtle haze and shadow around the periphery of the frame, helped communicate distant memory tinged with the darkness of childhood fears.

Once In Love

A gentle softness was layered over the entire image, taming the hard edges to help connect these moments to the memories of childhood, while at the same time embellishing a fulness of rich "romance" colors within the frame to express a renewed sense of life and love.

Pale Present To fully capture the cold, desolate, disassociation of the daily grind of a life hardly lived, the color temperatures were pulled down nearly to freezing.  Any tones associated with happiness and warmth were drained, thus revealing the desaturated visage of a lost soui.
