Adam Little edits and Jimmy Cadenas grades new video directed by Trey Fanjoy.

NASHVILLE—December 19, 2012—

Filmworkers

provided editorial, color grading and other post-production services for

American Heart

, the new music video from country music superstar Faith Hill. Adam Little edited the video, which includes a dance duet between Hill and 10-year-old sensation T.J. Jones. Working simultaneously with Little, colorist Jimmy Cadenas performed color grading, applying the final polish to the video’s rich, playful, All-American look.

Directed by Trey Fanjoy, the video weaves performance imagery with dance sequences in which Hill and young T.J. Jones perform on a stage in front of a giant American flag made of flashing red, white and blue lights. A large projection screen, also positioned behind the dancers, displays images of American cities, people and icons.

American Heart

is the first single from Faith Hill’s forthcoming album of the same name.

Little has edited more than 100 videos directed by Fanjoy for some of the biggest stars in popular music, and the results this time are magical. “I love working with the motion of dancers, highlighting the best parts,” Little says. “That made the edit fun. I wanted to show the interplay between Faith and the boy; they had a great relationship.”

While Little and Fanjoy refined the cut, Cadenas, Filmworkers’ new Baselight colorist, colored scenes in an adjacent grading suite. “Our overall objective was to make it look patriotic and beautiful,” he observes, adding that he also spent a lot of time drawing out the details in the illuminated flag and projected imagery seen in the background. “The video was shot with an Arri Alexa, which meant that the imagery gave me all the latitude I needed,” Cadenas explains. “I could bring down the detail when I needed to, or let it fly off the charts.”

Fanjoy notes that editing and grading the video at the same facility offered both practical and artistic advantages. Among other things, Cadenas’ grades could be immediately applied to Little’s cuts. “Raw footage from digital cameras has a very flat look,” she says. “Although this allows for great color flexibility in grading the final video, showing rough cuts to clients with milky, non-color-corrected footage is not optimal. In doing the post production at Filmworkers, we were able to work simultaneously on different parts of the process. As we were editing with Adam, we were color grading the rough cuts with Jimmy. This way each version was always presented to the artist with stunning color.”
