So when it came down to deciding the look of my short I felt really strongly about letting the colors tell the story as well as the design. The gray palette is designed to really punch out the colors when then show up. Each lighting change directly correlates with a twist in the story as well as just looking pretty. A red light, meant to look like emergency vehicle lights, passes across the screen repeatedly in this shot. We achieved this look by moving a red gel from screen right to left in front of a directional light.
