It was really fun working on Mika rottenberg’s latest project “remote’.  taking place in the not too distant future.  remote explores human connection in a world perhaps not as grounded as it appears.

The film was shot on arri alexa in uhd.  i really like how the LOG-C footage behaves in davinci resolve.  being able to have a bigger sandbox than standard rec 709 is a welcomed workflow.

Mika Rottenberg’s REMOTE – Color Correction and Finishing

This project is a bit different as it will play in museums around the world including the New York Film Festival, MOCA LA and Tate Modern.

REMOTE portrays a strangely credible futuristic world. The film follows Unoaku, an expat architect living and working in Kuala Lumpur. She and four other women follow a popular South Korean dog-groomer online.

Each live on their own in apartments around the world. Yet the five women discover they are connected through mysterious portals in their homes. Embarking on a quest for answers, they use the portals to bridge the distance between them. Together they uncover a strange phenomenon with universal consequences.

Filmed in 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic, REMOTE features a cast of multinational actors and performers including Okwui Okpokwasili and Joony Kim. The film explores a future populated by isolated and yet connected individuals.
