LookLabs Staff Pick - Safe from Netflix

Jun 9, 2018

"One of my favorite actors Michael C. Hall of Dexter fame stars in a new Netflix mini-series, Safe”, states LookLabs' colorist Jeff August. Safe focuses on Englishman Tom Delaney (Hall), a pediatric surgeon and widowed father of two teenage daughters. He is struggling to connect to his daughters as they still grieve the loss of his wife from cancer one year prior. After his 16-year-old daughter Jenny goes missing, Tom ends up uncovering a web of secrets as he frantically searches for her. Safe is an eight episode series and is definitely binge worthy. It almost feels like a soap opera that looks like a movie. "Speaking of the look…I loved it. I find a lot of new shows shot digitally are afraid of dark scenes with high contrast and punchy colors. Safe has all off these aspects going for it which gives it a truly filmic look".

To achieve this look, start with any of the LookLabs DFS Kodak LUT’s - don't hesitate to play with them all, each has its own distinct character and personality. "To all you colorists out there…don’t be afraid of deep blacks and high contrast in your grade…you will love the look".

Check out the Safe trailer and see what the look of Kodak can achieve.
