One of our most popular looks and color schemes. It has a subtle look, looks perfect with anything, in any environment.
We don’t use many textures to create a video, so we love to use simple black and white video. We use a combination of 2x and 3x on occasion, but the general goal is always 2x black and white. This makes your scene a simple, yet powerful one.

You’re constantly being asked to improvise and make things look better. How do you manage to keep you from getting stuck (or making mistakes)?
We never stop improvising! A lot of my tricks are based on improvisation, so the more you do something the more fun you are having and the faster you get a good
