: "Ti Amo, Mr Nibbles" is a tender and visually enchanting short romantic LGBTQ drama that delicately explores the journey of a young couple as they navigate the perfect moment to say 'I love you'. As the colourist and gaffer on this shot, my task was to infuse the visuals with a soft, vintage-inspired palette with poppy colour contrast in the contrasting hair colours of the two lead actresses. 

Key Elements:

  • Vibrant Hair Colours: The contrasting red and blue hair of the lead actresses is highlighted with vibrant, bubble-gum-like hues, ensuring they pop off the screen and become key visual motifs within the film.
  • Soft Vintage Palette: The overall colour grading employs a soft, vintage aesthetic, reminiscent of cherished memories, enhancing the emotional resonance of the narrative.
  • Memory-like Visuals: The film's visual style is designed to evoke a sense of nostalgia, with a gentle, warm palette that makes the scenes feel like precious moments frozen in time.

Film Description: "Ti Amo, Mr Nibbles" is a touching love story about two young women discovering the perfect way to express their feelings. The film captures the subtle dynamics of their relationship, focusing on the sincerity and timing of their heartfelt confession.

Visual Style: As the gaffer and colourist, my role was to bring the director's vision to life by accentuating the vibrant colours on screen and enveloping the film in a soft, vintage glow. The use of contrasting and lively hair colours against a nostalgic palette was pivotal in creating a visually striking and emotionally engaging film. The bubble-gum hues of the hair were balanced with the vintage look, ensuring the film's aesthetic was both modern and timeless.

Conclusion: "Ti Amo, Mr Nibbles" is a beautifully crafted film that combines a touching story with a distinctive visual style. My work as the gaffer and colourist revolved around assisting director Govind Chandran and Cinematographer Jamie Laxton in enhancing the light and colour of this enchanting and heartfelt story, ensuring that the visual elements enhanced the film's romantic and nostalgic atmosphere.
