SOMEONE ELSE – A Cinematic Short by May Xiong

SOMEONE ELSE – A Cinematic Short by May Xiong

We asked Photographer and Cinematographer May Xiong to come up with a video concept and use our Lotus LUTs to color grade the film. May has such an incredible eye for composition, narrative, and cinematography that we wanted to see what she would create if we simply let her run wild with creativity and inspiration. She came up with the short below, titled Someone Else.
