[UPDATED] Will Tonight’s Sean Cody Video Look As Horrendous As This Trailer?

Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 2.08.11 PMJust when you think Sean Cody scenes can’t get any worse. The people who edit their videos can’t really be this incompetent, can they?

Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 2.09.24 PMI’d like to believe that the trailer below is a joke on the part of the Sean Cody post-production crew, and the actual scene going live here in a couple hours won’t really look like this? But, you never know. We’ll find out tonight, and I’ll update this post once the scene is live.

Screen Shot 2018-12-12 at 2.09.49 PMHopefully this is just a fuck up on the part of whoever edited the trailer, and the actual scene is fine. For now, here’s the unbelievably horrific and completely unwatchable trailer for Murray and Manny’s duo, which looks like it was filmed inside a San Diego morgue using some sort of post-apocalyptic Instagram filter.

UPDATE:

Sean Cody has just sent out a color-corrected trailer, proving that someone there does know what they’re doing. Can they go back and do this on all the messed up scenes they’ve released over the last two years?

    holy shit this is bad. they had a recent video that looked like this too! i forgot which scene because i did not watch it lol

  • FrenchBug

    Same odious filter as the Richard dot xxx scenes I was complaining about. Me thinks we may have a director in common.
    My main question is: why? At least with the stupid Helix/CB lighting, I get what the are *trying* to do, visually. What can they possibly be trying to achieve with this washed-out filter?

    • Zachary Sire

      The hazy/bright filter on the Richard scenes has NOTHING on this. And fwiw the most recent Richard scenes haven’t been using that filter as much.

  • Using a bad filter on the 🔥 pairing that is Manny and Murray should be considered hate crime.

  • Keir Grey

    I still dislike how the photography looks in the “corrected” trailer. SC’s picture quality was better 6 years ago! These technical issues in their recent scenes need to stop!

    Re: UPDATE: Now what in HELL were they thinking releasing the first version if it was so easy to color-correct the scene? Why was it filmed that way in the first place? And then did *no one* look at the scene first? What is going on here? Is someone minding the store? Wtf?

    • Zachary Sire

      Obviously it has nothing to do with filming. It’s post-production editing.

      • FrenchBug

        Which makes it even crazier. Who in their right mind think that looked better than this?

    Holy fucking shit! This is lazy!

    I know EXACTLY what happened here. Some nitwit with no business behind a camera was playing around in the menu and stumbled upon the picture profile settings. Said nitwit thought “oh, this’ll be neato!” and selected the flattest fucking profile they could find. “Yeah, Imma shoot like the professionals.” the dumbass said to an equally stupid crew. They then locked in the settings and pressed record with absolutely no goddamn clue the footage required proper post-production color grading to be watchable. Next the moronic editor looked at the clips and realized they lacked the basic skills to do anything with it. After a quick hack job piecing everything together the buck was passed. Then passed again with each person hoping responsibility for this steaming pile of a scene could not be traced back to them.

    I don’t know what cameras those butt-muppets behind Sean Cody use, but that footage is similar to Sony sLog3. Oh, it retains so much information, but it’s as flat as a twink’s ass! I understand wanting a challenge but damn they were all in over their heads. Like take a step back and put on your training wheels.

    @zacharysire:disqus : Kellan still have a clip with GH, fucking Max Ritchie.

  • hotdickcum

    When is Eddie coming back? :(

  • Scrapple

    I prefer the greyscale version. At least that way they can’t refer to Murray as being “tan.”

    Is this site staffed entirely by interns? In an industy of over 90% unemployment, how hard is it to find a competent camera operator?

  • Al

    I like both of these dudes and this pairing looks hot.

  • roadtripboy

    Well, they sort of fixed it. It’s about the best the could do I suppose. I used to be a tape editor there’s only so much you can do to something that’s badly produced. It’s still not right though.

  • Seth Sexton

    Whoa! The difference is literally like night and day. What in the ass are they doing at SC?

    Chyle…
