This impressive showreel by colorist Juan Salvo combines his professional work with a creative personal touch.
We see a lot of demos and showreels – a lot – and every once in a while one sticks out from the crowd through an impressive body or work or uncommon presentation.
The following reel by professional colorist Juan Salvo uses a unique approach for reels by employing his narration to connect with the viewer, a style more familiar to advertising than demo reels. The result works. We not only see Salvo’s body of professional work, but we also see him at work – sitting at the boards, drafting out his color plan and building color grades in post. It has a humanizing effect, showing the person behind the color grading work.
It’s an interesting approach to creating a demo or showreel, and one that could potentially be used for all types of production and post production positions. Something to think about. Inspiring work, Juan!
