 Color script/beat board, Big Idea Production "Jonah"    One area I specialize in is color scripting, inventing the graphic impact and emotional response of each scene. Then I color key establishing shots, rendering the texture, giving clarity to the environment's surfaces. I owe a big part of my training of my color knowledge to Plein Air painting, working out color notes while studying nature and lighting first hand. There is nothing more thrilling than dreaming up worlds that open up your imagination within the given script or text of a novel.
