Topics: Java Blog
Premiering at the Whistler Film Festival last year, the Saskatchewan-based feature film Basic Human Needs will have its theatrical release in Saskatoon and Regina this month. As part of National Canadian Film Day, the movie will show at the Roxy Theatre in Saskatoon on April 20th at 7:00 PM. This will be followed by a run at the Rainbow Cinemas Studio 7 in Regina, starting on April 22nd, with daily showings at 1:00 PM and 7:00 PM. Tickets at the respective box offices go on sale on April 18th.
Java Post Production provided post-production services for the movie, including colour grading.
Left to right we see the movie's cinematographer, Layton Burton, producer Matthieu Belanger, writer/director/lead actor Matt Yim, and producer Allan Roeher, as they enjoy some good Java Post coffee during a colour grading spotting session with our company owner and head colourist, "Java Jack" Tunnicliffe.
Matthieu, Matt and Allan were the Saskatchewan winners of the inaugural INDIECAN 10K Initiative, a program launched by executive producer Avi Federgreen and Indiecan Enertainment and aimed at first time Canadian feature film makers. The chosen film makers were partnered with an experienced local mentor and were able to utilize professional production facilities. The mentor for Basic Human Needs was producer Mark Montague and Java Post Production provided post-production services.
Using DaVinci Resolve, Jack works on the colour grading for a dramatic bedroom scene featuring the movie's writer/director/lead actor Matt Yim and co-star Laura Ambramsen.
There's more to a spotting session than sitting around in a dimly-lit room watching movies. There's coffee and snacks, too. :)
