Chapter 12. Working with Light > Creating a Look with Color

Creating a Look with Color

Go back and study a movie that you consider to be visually compelling. Chances are that the use of color in that film was bold and deliberate. If you ever saw behind-the-scenes footage of one of your favorite films, you might be startled at how flat and boring all the action seems, taken directly on set with standard video ENG (electronic news gathering) equipment.

Some of that movie magic process is the direct result of photochemical processes applied to the film. For example, much of the strange, detached, futuristic appearance of the film Minority Report was derived from the use of the bleach bypass method in processing the film. To some degree, it is possible to re-create these kinds of looks purely in After Effects, particularly if you have good reference.
