Personally I didn't want to say anything because I thought you had colored them and... well, they looked like crap.
And I don't like trashing people on the internet.
Oh wait... that was shot on film. Damn it!!!
Bruce, this may not live up to film in your opinion but here is an attempt at a saturated Epic skin tone. This is a frame from my latest short and this is waaaaaay more saturated than I intend to finish it, but I think it looks as good as any saturated Alexa skin tone, in fact the lips look much better...
It's interesting how we can scientifically measure resolution, dynamic range, and color... Yet color is the one aspect where our responses are subjective because we all perceive colors slightly differently and we all apply personal taste when reviewing color, yet we can all generally agree on how many lines of resolution were measured on a chart and how many steps of luminance were captured by a grey scale.
BTW - Dude, that's the waaaay over-saturated version?? Lemme edit you up a saturated version :)
Of course pushing RED to produce more film like skin tones is great, but what are film like skin tones exactly? Not every films skin tones look identical. I have a feeling once RED perfects the color science for skin tones some will complain skin tones are too saturated or some other issue.
Not 100% what I would do with the color - a bit too saturated even for my tastes and color isn't quite right to my taste! - but wow... imagine if we could get this out of RED... maybe not the fire colors at the end but the skin tones in the beginning for sure :)

And that's Fuji stock... a lot of people prefer Kodak.
And listen to how much they're talking about skin tones... very very important thing. Imagine if you replaced "4K4K4K4K" of RED with "skintoneskintoneskintone" - the world would be a better place.
It seems like we're talking about different decades here in terms of the concerns and terminology expressed here. Lik
