Don't be hasty. [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
Is it just me, or does the color grading in this clip look like a bad Instagram? The clip almost looks like it was shot in black and white and then colorized! The flesh tones are washed out and the blues (Gandalf's hat and eyes) are WAY saturated. Surely, this can't be what Peter intended; he has stated all along that his goal was to make fantasy look real, and this treatment just pulls me right out of the film.


I posted this for another user and now for you:

Don't be Hasty.
I would not judge the quality of the digital photography by this horribly compressed codec, on youtube. I would bet the color and exposure of the final image look nothing like what you see here. Andrew Lesnie and Peter Jackson, are not blind.
