Dad in hot tub. We used to celebrate dad’s birthday (really his idea) by gathering at a hotel about a half hour north of NYC.
This shot was taken on some sort of black and white film. I have no idea where the idea to color it came from, but it wasn’t some automated process. I had a tablet, and had created a palette and essentially sat with my eyes closed and tried to remember what color things were.
It’s essentially hand colored the way they did it in the old days. And this one frame probably took a week until I got bored and left some of the background b&w.
Back in the day, with movies like Napoleon, they hand-colored thousands of frames. Mind boggling.
