Congratulations to Sadie Frost on her well deserved 'Best Actress in a Short Film' award at the Hollywood Reel Film Festival. Sadie plays the eponymous Dotty opposite her son, Rudy Law in a tale of an unlikely friendship between a strange old woman and a lost child.
Michael worked with Director Ben Charles Edwards to create a look that complimented the film's tender yet magical theme. It was important to Ben that the look reflected the film's place and time (1960s Nevada) with a subtle depth that went beyond a clichéd Instagram feel. Technically, Michael developed a workflow of pre-noise reducing the DSLR footage with Neat Video allowing him to give the footage a stronger grade and realise Ben's vision.
