LookLabs Staff Pick - The Handmaid's Tale

Jul 24, 2017

The Handmaid's Tale is a 1985 dystopian novel by acclaimed Canadian author Margaret Atwood which has now been turned into an original Hulu miniseries. Set in a dystopian future, a woman is forced to live as a concubine under a fundamentalist theocratic dictatorship. The story is very dark but the look of the series is beautifully colored and photographed. The dark tones are filled with blue and green accents whereas the highlights are consistently warm. Most importantly, the skin tones look completely natural and highly filmic.

If you are trying to achieve this feel, look no further than our FUJI LUT’s that are included in our new product DFS - Digital Film Stock. Fuji film is known for its cooler blacks and warmer highlights making our DFS LUT’s a natural and great starting place.
