Creating an Authentic B & W Image That Can’t Be Beat!

Jul 31, 2020

One of the stocks we scanned is Kodak's stunning black and white 5231 Plus X B&W, used to create the dramatic look of such films as; Schindler’s List (1993), Memento (2000) and I’m Not There (2007). SpeedLooks Noir Nouvelle emulates the look of this crisp, high contrast black and white film stock while not “de-saturating” the picture. The result is natural looking black and white footage from LOG or rec709 color space. Our Noir look truly emulates black and white film by giving the proper density and feeling to your image. It doesn’t just turn the chroma off, it gives you an authentic black and white image that can’t be beat.

SpeedLooks Linear LUTs are a simple way to create beautiful filmic images using one LUT. Designed for quick color correction, these LUTs work on all REC. 709 footage. Our LOG LUTs provide a comprehensive 2-LUT process to color grading using our intermediate VS-LOG combined with our exclusive camera patch technology.
