Tinder stories, directed by Laura Martinova and edited by myself has been selected at the Festival de Cine de Madrid, 2018 edition. I took great care of the edit of that short-film so this is great news. The script changed greatly throughout the edit until the film had a unique pace that the audience could track whilst following a heavily intercut dialogue.
During the edit the selection of music was key. The tone of the stories was dark yet funny, a grey area that the music had to hint from the beginning. A great Latin American bolero from the 70s was the perfect match, and with that in mind the composer recreated later the same feeling.
The second element was color. For the first time I took charge of the color correction. The camera and production design had done a great job so I pushed for reds and blues, which combined greatly with the warm golden tones of the clothing and hair. (I used DaVinci Resolve).
