Fits and Starts is the type of movie I love. It was Laura’s first feature I know and perhaps Ben’s as well. They filmed it on a shoestring budget with old Sony f5 cameras that they got for cheap. We got very creative in the grade! Noise was a problem (blue channel especially) and I remember that we had all sorts of creative solutions to making various scenes work. Bold color choices! I love it. This film will always have a special place in my memory. Very proud of what we did given the time and resources. Looks great!
