  1. Great article, thank you! That's a great tip about also taking something away when a strong element is added to the image. Cool that you get to work with your dad!

    I've got to say I really appreciated this article. It was really helpful to hear about how the Fuji print emulation LUT was used rather than the Alexa LUT - specifically to take advantage of the way greens were pushed toward yellow or blue by that LUT. Also the use of the Baselight monochrome look that was tweaked. Cool point about working both pre and post LUT. I also appreciated hearing about working with clients and meeting their expectations for color. Thank you Peter!
  3. Hey Orash, now I got it. In that case I think that shooting the test film will be a cool educational project but your workflow will be a bit different from what you would use with digital images from RED, Arri, etc. In my opinion, you would do well to find a film-inspired look that you like, and then come up with your own methods to find a similar look with your digital images. There's not really a right way or a wrong way, just get your look One small workflow thing that might help would be to try "film-style grading" in which you leave your shots in log space (Red Log3G10/wgRGB or Arri LogC, etc) and then use a log to display transform as the last step in your grade. Do the grading on the log image using offsets / gain / contrast etc and see where you end up. Good luck!
  4. Hey Orash, Once your test film is shot, you should get it processed and scanned at the same lab that would handle the real film. You can then grade the test frames and see how they will look. Do you know if they want to do a film print or will the final be strictly digital?
