APP’s Garden Party
APP held its first annual event on May 29, with a 5-to-8 cocktail at Mile End’s Aire Commune. After a disgusting winter, a month of April at 3 degrees and the scandal of
P. O. Beaudoin’s gift card, we wanted to regroup to welcome the sun finally showing up at the end of the ray.
We also took the opportunity to highlight the remarkable year of some of our craftspeople, whose hot videos have helped melt the snow.
COLORIST OF THE YEAR 2018: JÉRÔME CLOUTIER
« Je suis un retoucheur d’images. Je ne transforme pas une ambiance, je l’appuie. » (« I retouche images. I don't transform a mood, I support it. »)
Because he has thought a lot about his job, his colleagues do not hesitate to talk about him as a mentor. « La vision du réalisateur est traduite en images par le directeur photo. Mon rôle est de comprendre, préciser et compléter de qu’ils ont à dire. Le film doit être la somme de nos trois perceptions. » (« The director's vision is translated into images by the DOP. My role is to understand, clarify and complete what they have to say. The film must be the sum of our three perceptions. « ) Jérôme works with small touches, with rightfulness and precision. « Il y a une différence entre une belle et une bonne colorisation. Il faut toujours choisir la bonne, c’est-à-dire celle qui sert le film. Ne jamais intervenir inutilement. » (« There is a difference between a beautiful and a good colorization. You always have to choose the right one, that is, the one that serves the film. Never intervene unnecessarily. »)
