Tribeca Entry Sealed Off Graded in DaVinci Resolve Studio

PostThu May 25, 2023 7:20 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that the short film “Sealed Off,” which is in competition at the 2023 Tribeca Film Festival, was graded by colorist Aaron Peak with DaVinci Resolve Studio editing, grading, visual effects (VFX) and audio post production software.

Set during the late 1930s in Shanghai, “Sealed Off” depicts a city invaded and controlled by the Japanese government during World War II. Frequent lockdowns, foreshadowing potential air strikes or military actions, could have meant the demise of the city and its residents. During one of these periods, two people share a moment of humanity amongst the encompassing fear around them. “Sealed Off” was directed by John Jiang and stars Zhenfei Chen and Shijiu Liu.

Shot at Shanghai Chedun Film Park over a period of four days, Jiang found that with limited resources the production had to accept difficult conditions in order to capture the drama within the short window of filming. “The most significant challenge was dealing with the continuity of the environment, the constantly changing weather, and the orientation of the sun,” said Jiang. “We ended up with footage that was very inconsistent. Luckily we had planned a lot of black and white sequences, and we knew that the color sequences set inside a trolley car would be less challenging.”
