From music videos and short films to commercials and corporate videos, Scott and SmakStudios have done them all. While everything we do is a serious venture, being young, we like to think we’ve only just begun and, someday, we’ll be leading the way to new and ever better ways to capture and deliver moving visual narratives.
Smak rents its Red Epic Package in addition to an array of lighting/grip and audio equipment.
The DaVinci Resolve colour suite is where all our projects are elevated and enriched to their final colour finish, whether 1080p LOG or 6k RAW.
Titles, lower thirds and closed captioning – any online requirement – are accommodated before we supply digital, blu-ray or DCP files.
For the best part of the last decade Scott has earned every accolade that contributes to his reputation as a fast rising star among multi format cinematographers. Specializing in digital cinema and Resolve colour grading, Scott’s mastery of the technical is what ensures the refined visual aesthetic that distinguishes all his finished work. Plainly, his shoots are rarely burdened by the technical difficulties that inevitably steal from the art.
Scott works with Smak’s own Red Epic-MX 5K Digital Cinema Camera and lighting and audio packages that are more than adequate for an independent film production or digital web content. However, being well acquainted with the major equipment rental houses means even MONUMENTAL productions are readily equipped.
The final steps in Scott’s process, the colour grading and online finishing, take place in his post facility in the Toronto Carpet Factory in Liberty Village. He calls the suite modest, but “efficient” might better describe it. It provides he and his clients that final degree of control that marks the work as something special, something all can take pride in.
