Hello everyone - what a difficult time. We'd just like you to know that your health is all important to us right now so please follow the government advice regarding social distancing and hand washing. It's essential that we help the fabulous people of our NHS and our local communities during these challenging times. Kind gestures such as reaching out to vulnerable members of your community such as the elderly will go a long way right now - a friendly knock on the door or the offer to transport food will make a huge difference to people's lives.
All of our colour grading work at Girafingo is done remotely with our clients - so nothing has changed on that note. If you have a colour grading request please visit our colour grading page and submit your request via the form. We are still accepting requests for film production but only on a discretionary basis. This is based on the suitability of the request regarding social distancing and the health and safety of all involved.
Based out of Bussey Building, Peckham, Girafingo comprises of a filmmaker and colourist with an incredible passion for conveying feeling to our audience. Our films strive to present narrative as an experiential rather than interpretive experience.
One of the distinguishing features of film...is its ability to produce non-cognitive affective responses, which viewers experience as a result of film's direct sensory engagement. This evokes intense feelings in us that are independent of, and sometimes even incompatible with, our cognitive judgments of what we are watching.
We choose to embrace the fragmentary nature of storytelling that utilises individual moments to communicate feeling.
We favour mood as an extended state of being over the temporal nature of emotion in order to bring our audience into a suspended experience of the present.
