Driven by a love of storytelling and a fearless nature, filmmaker Dave Basulto’s packed career has taken him from Wall Street to Hollywood and beyond. A California boy, he started out working as a stockbroker back in the 80’s with an office on the 65th floor of the World Trade Center. Living and working in New York City was an adventure and the money was good, but when someone called to see if he wanted to be an extra in Rocky V, his curiosity got the better of him.
“I had absolutely no idea what I was getting into,” Basulto recalls, “but as soon as I heard the word ‘Rocky,’ I just had to give it a try.” It was his first time on a film set and he loved the feeling of being around actors and the crew so much that he soon decided to drop everything and become an actor full-time. So, to the great chagrin of his mother, he packed his belongings and headed west for Hollywood and a great future. He refers to that decision as “a leap of faith.” There would be more of them.
“I didn’t make it big, but I made a decent living for 10 years” he says. “On the TV front I had appearances in Cheers, Mad About You, News Radio. In films I got to work alongside stars like Jon Voight, Steven Seagal, and many others. One of my favorite roles was in American History X where I tormented Edward Norton’s character in jail.”
This post is part of a series where we challenge filmmakers to transform the atmosphere or feel of a short video clip, by using custom Looks created with Adobe Hue CC. Show us what you can do with the same footage by downloading it here.
Color and light have a huge impact on the art of filmmaking. They set the mood and tone (no pun intended!) of a scene, and guide our experience of the story. To illustrate this phenomenon, we caught up with Jason Levine (@Beatlejase) and asked him to use the all-new Adobe Hue CC to capture three custom Looks and apply them to the same set of video clips using Adobe Premiere Clip to see how creative looks alter the feel of a piece.
Here’s the original montage:
Look #1: Desert Sunrise
When & Where did you capture this Look?
This look was captured in Las Vegas, Nevada at approximately 6:15am, in April 2015.

Adobe Photoshop is synonymous with creativity, which is why it made perfect sense to celebrate its 25th anniversary with a standout commercial of exceptional artistry. Goodby Silverstein & Partners (GS&P) produced and Rock Paper Scissors edited the fantastic spot—an animated montage of the work of artists from all over the world. It aired during the 2015 Oscars and has been watched nearly 1.9 million times on YouTube. The commercial won two AICP awards, a D&AD Graphite Pencil, two Cannes Cyber Lions, and continues to receive rave reviews from creative professionals and dreamers worldwide.
Contributors to the project included Alex Amado, Senior Director, Creative & Media at Adobe; Timothy Plain, Producer and Tod Puckett, Director of Broadcast Production of GS&P; and Video Editor Grant Surmi of Rock Paper Scissors, who all enjoyed working on this fast paced, captivating commercial created with Adobe Creative Cloud.
