Cotton's colour skills on show in four NZIFF finalists

Posted Monday 02 Jul 2018

Congratulations to Images and Sound's Alana Cotton, whose colour grading skills can be seen in no less than four of the six films selected by Leon Narbey as finalists in the NZIFF's annual New Zealand's Best Short Film Competition. In case you were wondering just what a colourist does (we were!), here's a short job description: colourists create the final look of a film or video by correcting any errors in colour or exposure, matching shots captured on various days or different cameras, and creating style and depth. The films Cotton worked on are: Charmer, Falling Up, No Shame and Run Rabbit.
