Blackmagic Design’s today announced that DaVinci Resolve was used to color grade the film ‘Benjamin’s Last Day at Katong Swimming Complex’. The film, finished in HDR, recently won the George Lucas Award at Japan’s most prestigious short film competition.

The film, a visual ode to a simpler past, beat out 10,000 other submissions from 130 countries and territories to qualify for nomination in the live action short film category of the Oscars.

“Feel was central to showing and not telling the story. Shots in the past had a vintage aged film quality to rewind the audience back to a time before everything became so digital,” says Chai Yee Wei, Director of ‘Benjamin’s Last Day at Katong Swimming Complex’. “Muted pastels with a pronounced coral color lift was a familiar frame in 1970s pictures of Singapore. This turquoise and cotton candy palette set the mood for the film and was responsible for the beautiful even stitch of shots from various days and even from separate locations!”
