Page 3 of 43 2 POST MARCH 2018 EDITOR'S LETTER e've been covering music videos regularly each summer (and will continue to), but there's so much new material coming out that we just couldn't wait a few more months. As such, Linda Romanello and I have put together a report on some of the latest releases — from well known artists like Justin Timberlake and Eminem, as well as a number of up and comers. Our coverage continues on, where you can view each of the music videos we mention on page 26, as well as many others that just couldn't make it into our print pages. Director Justin Reich continued his work with Black Label Society, this time producing and editing a new music video for the hard rock band's A Love Unreal track. The video takes a light-hearted look at the life of the Grim Reaper, who goes about his day as a landscaper, and then does his shopping and laundry before shooting some pool and singing karaoke. Reich's team shot with Sony's fs7 to capture 4K imagery in sLog3Cine and he then spent a full day editing the piece in Adobe Premiere Pro CC, applying a number of looks and LUTs using a combination of the Lumetri color panel and downloads from Color Grading Central. Nice Shoes colorist Roslyn Di Sisto worked with Director X on French Montana's new vid- eo, Famous, in which the artist appears in a dry yet subtly colorful landscape. Di Sisto says the goal was to dramatize the heat of the Morocco environment as much as possible, while also focusing on skin tones and traditional clothing. "X and I were feeling more of a peeled back, desaturated look, but we still wanted to stay true to the vibrancy of the people and locations," says Di Sisto, who used a Baselight system to complete the project. "We decided to keep the overall palette nice and soft, and instead accentuated the reoccurring blues and cyans throughout." And Freddy Monday's new single Me Are You Are Me, takes on a much more techie look, embracing the symbols of social media to make the piece look like a live stream that's being viewed by a fan on an iPad Mini. The project was directed by filmmaker Martin Guigui and features many familiar social media graphics that pop up and animate throughout. Visit, and turn up the volume! he Time's Up movement was founded earlier this year, on January 1, 2018 to be exact, by a group of Hollywood celebrities in response to what is now being referred to as "the Weinstein Effect." And we're seeing women standing up, in all walks of life, not just against sexual harassment, but also against unequal pay and overall respect for being good at our jobs. Certainly the call seems to be loudest in Hollywood. In two-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand's recent speech after her Best Actress in a Leading Role win for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri at the 2018 Academy Awards, she called for all of the female nominees, including Meryl Streep and Greta Gerwig, to stand up with her and tell their stories to Hollywood. Also, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences nominated a woman, Greta Gerwig, for female director (Lady Bird) and, for the first time, a female cinematographer Rachel Morrison for her work on Mudbound. Progress! In Marc Loftus' interview with Crystal Campbell, co-founder/executive producer of New York City creative shop Roof Studio ("Women in Post," page 11), she says, "When someone would talk down to me, I didn't process the interaction as men-versus-women. Looking back now, I can see that, yeah, some of that was definitely sexism..." Looking at this month's cover, featuring Ellen Pompeo, star of ABC's long-running hit drama, Grey's Anatomy, I realized that it represents how many women can come together in key positions — including show creator Shonda Rhimes, showrunners Betsy Beers and Krista Vernoff, Pompeo herself, who also took a turn as director, as well as co-star and pro- ducer Debbie Allen and post producer Lisa Taylor (see "Primetime," page 12) — and deliver a hugely successful series for more than 12 years. In fact, it's poised to surpass ER as the longest running medical drama in the US. No small feat! So, it's not all bad news and I choose to be optimistic, that the trend I'm seeing now will continue to move forward. It's certainly about time.
