Red loves Rosie...
Wow, really pretty footage! Great skin tones!
Thats a really beautiful piece. I love the "dirtiness" of the compositions and the choice of a lower contrast was perfect.
My only criticism is I wish they had unified the framesize. Clearly there was a lot of "fit width" going on except where they must've punched in and the tiny letterbox went away. I'd rather they have cropped or unified it with a no letterbox look since it wasn't an aspect ratio letterbox for style it seemed.
In the hands of a professional.........this looks great!
Love it! Yes, great skin tones and "filmic" look as some here on Reduser have been asking about. Of course, that's nothing new :)
Especially love the Bokeh on the shots in the bar. Which lenses Jarred?
The colors are STYLIZED though. In a similar way to how many other (also BEAUTIFUL) RED-shot stuff is stylized.
Compared to the way I see skin tones in real life, and the way they look in many movies shot on film with a naturalistic look, this is desaturated. Also, in the shadows, the color doesn't vary much - it just goes to gray, like it is one unvarying color painted over a grayscale. Lips are a shade of magenta that I've seen on stuff I've shot on RED too, where the actors for sure didn't have lipstick that color...
This is all beside the point though.
The color treatment works PERFECTLY in the spot - because my eye's attention goes to the clothes and the amazing fabrics. If we're spending the whole time looking at the people's faces, and not a moment on the clothes (which Greg's Epic has captured in shimmering beauty) and the surrounding world, it would not be as effective a piece!
Cheers man - and I will post more about my own personal interests in color in that thread, and out of this one.
Congrats again to RED and Greg.
