What Filmmakers Can Learn from the Color of 'Dune'

Feb 18, 2022

Color grading a big motion picture is a complicated affair. Dune, Denis Villeneuve’s space epic, is a story told on a grand scale that hops between not only different planets but distinct alien cultures. A big part of this production was handled by David Cole, who oversaw the project as the supervising and lead digital colorist. But what can indie filmmakers, and filmmakers on a budget, learn from Cole’s workflow? How can they implement these concepts into their projects?

Check out this interview between No Film School's Yaroslav Altunin and colorist David Cole on his workflow for Dune to see what filmmakers can learn from his process. https://nofilmschool.com/Learn-From-The-Color-Of-D...
