Color Grading Inspiration

Dec 1, 2019

Whenever tackling a color grading project, colorists and video editors often attempt to emulate the look of another film. There are plenty of great places to find color breakdowns, but two of my favorites are Movies in Color and Movie Barcode. As far as breakdowns go, these are nontraditional. You won’t see talk about exposure, contrast, or really any technical talk. Essentially you are breaking down the most popular colors used in one scene or looking at the entire film as a whole.

In this article by Michael Maher, see how these color charts break down popular movie scenes and a film’s overall color composition. Find inspiration for you color grading projects... https://www.premiumbeat.com/blog/film-color-palett...

Want the Character and Beauty of 35mm Film?

Nov 19, 2019

Personality, character, feel, beauty … all words we use to describe the unique look of film. LookLabs color correction technology, SpeedLooks, revolutionized the industry by bringing the unique look of film to digital projects. We are the industry leader. That’s why the world’s two largest non-linear editing companies, Adobe Premiere and Avid, both carry our suite of products opening the world of color correction to editors everywhere.

There are two common color spaces for recording video. Rec. 709 and LOG. Log allows for maximum color manipulation in post-production. But logs vary from camera to camera. No two are the same. That’s were LookLabs color science comes in. Our software is designed specifically for each camera we test. We create a unique camera patch LUT for every camera. Once that camera patch LUT is applied in a grading application or non-linear editor, the camera’s original log image is transformed into what we call VS-log or, Virtual Speed LOG. If you are recording in REC. 709 we have you covered with our Universal camera patch. It translates REC. 709 to VS LOG.

LookLabs has revolutionized the production world for directors, DPs, colorists and editors. Now virtually any combination of cameras can be used in production and our camera patches will create one consistent look. Fine color correcting can still be done even with the camera patch applied. This is where SpeedLooks come into play. Once the camera patch is applied, leveling out the image in VS-Log, an overall SpeedLook can be layered onto your footage. Those looks that instantly tell the audience they are watching an epic drama or science-fiction film.

All our SpeedLooks emulate the look and feel of 35 mm film. Everything from film Noir to a big blockbuster look is available. And every look creates beautiful and even skin tones. Flawless faces especially closeup. SpeedLooks can even be applied in the field so you know what your images will look like even before making the first edit.

You can purchase our SpeedLooks Complete Bundle for $89 USD or, combine it with our DFS Bundle (Digital Film Stock) selling for $119 USD and get an even better deal for $159 for both.With SpeedLooks and camera patches, LookLabs offers total workflow solutions. The digital production playing field has been leveled. Visit looklabs.net/ to learn more about SpeedLooks and how you can easily achieve a great color finish on your next project.

LookLabs Staff Pick - The Joker

Nov 17, 2019

If you haven't seen the Joker yet, make a commitment to do so, it's well worth your time. Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. Arthur wears two masks -- the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he's part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as the Joker.

The story is wonderfully twisted and intriguing and the emotional look really adds to the dark tone of the movie. Lucky for you, recreating this look is easily done with SpeedLooks. If you combine two LUTs - Blue Intense and Big at approximately 50% value each and you will be extremely close. All that will be left is a minor tweak to set you solidly into the look of the Joker. Combining SpeedLooks is a great way to create your own fresh new look or, emulate a look you want for your next film.

Here's the trailer for The Joker - the look is really remarkable.

Color by LookLabs was brought into this project to perform the color grade, VFX shots and final finishing. The look of the movie needed to match the feel of the story. LookLabs combined it's Fuji digital film stock with SpeedLooks Blue, Gold and Green to create a dark mood echoing the flashback scenes. This look paved a trail for the viewer to experience a dreamlike state throughout the movie.
