I am happy to share with you guys the trailer of Sucker, the second movie directed by Michael Manasseri, produced by executive producer Bruce Lee and Kimberley Kates from Big Screen Entertainment Group.
My brother Ben Deka, and I were both DPs on it, as well as colorists and VFX supervisors... It was our first project in the Stats (shot in Pontiac, MI), since we're coming from France.
Main photography shot on RED-M, pick up shot on RED-MX. Additional mosquitos' POV shot on 5DmarkII.

Ben and I used Adobe After Effects CS5 as our primary tool for both VFX and Color Grading, all done in the same pass. Computer generated mosquitos were animated by Alexander Brown from Scientificaly Proven.
