AlphaDogs Hangs Ten In Chapters The Surf Movie

AlphaDogs Post Production brings precise and accurate color to Chapters The Surf Movie using Tektronix oscilloscopes to assist in keeping the colorist eye calibrated.

 
PRLog - Nov. 9, 2011 - BURBANK, Calif. -- Burbank based AlphaDogs Post Production is pleased to announce completion of work on Chapters The Surf Movie that will premiere November 10 at 8:00 p.m. at the Lido Theater in Newport Beach. Additional screenings will be in San Diego on November 19th at The La Paloma Theatre and Hermosa Beach in December.  Chapters bridges the gap between loggers and high performance longboarding by following renowned professional surfers including three time world champion, Colin McPhillips and others at various locations around the world.

Producers Joey Joyce and Jeremy Briggs chose AlphaDogs as their post facility after receiving a high recommendation from another filmmaker who used the facility earlier this year to post his film about surfing.  “Chapters is a 100 percent independent surf movie with no sponsorship.”  Joyce said. “AlphaDogs was easy to work with and stayed within our budget.  This was our first film and we felt like more than just a client. We could count on someone to be there anytime we had a question. I will definitely be using AlphaDogs again for my next project.”

Colorist Sean Stack used Apple Color to complete color grading on the film. Challenges presented themselves when it was discovered that a third of the footage was shot with an indoor white balance setting, giving the footage a blue color cast.  Stack was able to correct the problem and make accurate adjustments using Color’s powerful toolset while relying on precise signal monitoring equipment from Tektronix . This allowed Stack to balance out the blue hues while separately treating the skin tones on the surfer’s faces and bodies. “The human eye does not always compensate for bad color in a precise way.”  Stack comments, “The Tektronix oscilloscopes are a scientific way of keeping the eye calibrated. Without equipment to show true color values, the colorist may actually be harming the picture.”  The framing and action was shot well so once the color was balanced the story really came to life. Joyce comments, “Sean went above and beyond to make the film look great.  He was as dedicated to the project as we were.”

Casting for the film was selectively chosen in order to showcase talent that bridges the gap between loggers and high performance longboarding. Chapters takes the audience to each surfers hometown to capture performances at crackin’ surf spots.   World-class mega-rippers, Colin McPhilllips (three time world champion), Kai Sallas (Hawaiian power surfer) and Josh Constable (2006 world champion) were all chosen to show off some of their most excellent surfing moves. The cast also includes; Noah Shimabakuro, Greg Briggs, Brendan White, Tommy Witt, and surfing legend Joel Tudor.  Shot on location in California, Hawaii and Australia, Chapters will leave every surfing enthusiast saying “Woahhhhhh!”

Chapters The Surf Movie is Directed and Produced by Joey Joyce and Jeremy Briggs for Homestead Outdoor Movies.  For more information please visit the Facebook fan page.
