Colourist Sebastian Guest on Broken Hill Blues ("Ömheten")
“I worked on “Ömheten” with DoP Petrus Sjövik last year. The backdrop for the movie is the old northern mining town of Kiruna, part of which must be relocated due to the now unstable terrain beneath. We follow the ‘day-to-day’ life experiences of a number of young people living there.
Visually, our goal throughout was to maintain a soft look that flatters the characters and nature, contrasting with the difficulties our characters face, in a part of the country where conditions can be harsh and lives are in many ways defined by the mine and mining. It is very much a picture-driven feature (there is little dialogue). The soft look is particularly important for the moments of ‘tenderness’ (the literal translation of the movie’s title) which punctuate the feature.”
- Sebastian Guest, Colourist, Europa Sound and Vision.
The movie was conformed, graded and onlined in Mistika for DCP deliverable, at Europa Sound and Vision’s brand new picture facility. Featuring a 5m canvas, Barco projection (the same as in 90% of Sweden’s cinemas) and cinematic sound by JBL, the eminently comfortable and feature-rich suite hosted Ömheten as its very first feature length project. The facility runs four Mistikas, giving advantage both in terms of workflow efficiency and inherent redundancy.
