The final colour of this film came as somewhat of a surprise – as I developed the grade I found myself pushing more and more into a high-contrast look with desaturated highs and crisp lows.
The set design and costumes allowed for plenty of colour to pop out and work with, so there was a nice compliment to the blown-out highlights and warm cinematic skin tones. A nice contrast was drawn by warming up the image despite snow being on the ground. Creating a warm glow to the whole image.
By the end of the colour process the director was thrilled with the final look.
