Techni(cal) Color

Informative history and technique analysis color in storytelling. This is one of those filmic elements that I consider rather than plan. However, I’m trying to (color) correct that.

Additional Note: This supercut of Kubrick’s use of color helps illustrate how powerful it can be.

Color Me Colorful

I’ve been exploring color lately. Shooting flat for more dynamic range. Sharpening my color correction ‘skills’ (very much in quotes). Playing around with look-up tables. Why? Like a lot of digital filmmakers, I’ve realized the difference color can make, but didn’t quite know the mechanics behind it all. But the video above has definitely helped.
