Sometimes, the way your raw footage was shot can add a strange color (purple, blue, excessive orange/red, etc) to your actors’ SKIN TONES. What’s more, pushing that raw footage (or any footage, for that matter) with AGGRESSIVE COLOR GRADING (high contrast, etc) can add or accentuate SATURATION of undesirable tones in the skin. You really have to watch when you’re grading footage. You don’t want your actors to look like crap (after all, they’re supposed to look flawless and impossibly beautiful, aren’t they?) but yet you still want your backgrounds and overall image to have that SUPER STYLIZED COLOR LOOK you desire so much.

In this tutorial, we show some methods of COLOR CORRECTING the footage (Once again, this is from Director Elke Blasi‘s Feature Thriller “STAR 69“, and then slightly tweaking the SKIN TONES in order to make them more appealing.

This is a semi-quick one (under 10 minutes), as that’s all YouTube allows!

We’ve been meaning to do some APPLE COLOR tutorials for some time. Now that we started work on yet another feature, DIRECTOR ELKE BLASI’sSTAR 69,” we have a full COLOR CORRECTION video up for you guys to check out. Remember, COLOR CORRECTION is an important part of the filmmaking process.

I was about to write that COLOR CORRECTION is an important part of the POST PRODUCTION process, but it’s not an after thought. If you plan on going with a super-stylized look, you have to plan that FROM THE START. You have to LIGHT YOUR FILM with the COLOR CORRECTION LOOK in mind, otherwise you’ll get super contrasty images, etc. We’ll get into that in a later tutorial, but for now, here’s a tutorial discussing some of the challenges we’re facing when grading “STAR69.”

You may want to FULLSCREEN the video to see it in all it’s 720p HD glory,  otherwise it’s hard to see what we’re doing. Enjoy!
