Filmmaker Magazine talks to VFX artist Ryan Bozajian who also took on the role of pre-grading Roman Coppola's latest film, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, using DaVinci Resolve.

Explains Bozajian, "Since I had a background in color grading, I started thinking of different ways I could cut costs using my skill sets. Some of these productions have a really tight budget. They want to have a good DI but the budget is already so tight; what if I could save a chunk of money by doing what I was calling at that time a pre-grade? I just started finding different ways to do that. This was by far the most functional and smooth and painless version of this process that I think any of us have ever done."
