Skintones - how to achieve this look? Discussion in 'Looks' started by Malte Løkken, Apr 12, 2013. Malte Løkken Message Count: 18 Hello guys, I've been trying around with some skintones looks, and there's one look that I just can't seem to nail. In certain situations I think this "Redish shadows" look, is great for creating a mood, and I've seen it used many times in blockbuster movies.

I have been asked this question many times, “Do you white balance your camera?” I respond with one word, “Never.” White balancing a video camera is a holdover from the days of Ikegami cameras, the tubes inside that would burn if you shot a bright light.

A Look at SpeedGrade: Professional Color Grading within Adobe Creative Suite 6 » NYC Production & Post News –This review is the first of a two-part series on Adobe SpeedGrade. The release of the Production Premium version of Adobe Creative Suite 6 (CS6) last year contained a wealth of important new features in its various apps. I’ve already written an in-depth review of Premiere Pro that, in CS6, delivered on its promise of becoming a truly professional NLE.

Levinson has been involved in filmmaking for 28 years, starting after his graduation from Berkeley, when he found the job prospects for physics in a slump.

One of the most celebrated indie debuts in years, BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD weaves a lyrical tale of a girl named Hushpuppy who must save her ailing father and defend her home in a bayou. The auspicious premiere of BEASTS at this year's Sundance Film Festival had director Benh Zeitlin claiming the Grand Jury Prize and DP Ben Richardson with top cinematography honors, followed by the Camera d'’Or at Cannes. Crafted together through dozens of grants (including the inaugural ARRI Sundance Feature Film Program Package supplied by ARRI CSC), the film showcases the power of what talented filmmakers can do on a grassroots level and that epic ideas are not limited only to large budgets. Says producer Josh Penn, "Getting the ARRI Sundance grant made it possible for us to make the film. It made a huge difference and was the push we needed to make it happen." BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD was ambitious from the outset. Group: News Group: News
digitalfilms « a blog by Oliver Peters digitalfilms « a blog by Oliver Peters The editing of feature films is a small niche of the overall market for editing software, yet companies continue to highlight features edited with their software as a form of aspirational marketing to attract new users. Avid Technology has had plenty of competition since the start of the company, but the majority of mainstream feature films are still edited using Avid Media Composer software. Lightworks and Final Cut Pro “legacy” have their champions (soon to be joined by FCP X and Premiere Pro CC), but Media Composer has held the lead – at least in North America – as the preferred software for feature film editors. Detractors of Avid like to characterize these film editors as luddites who are resistant to change. They like to suggest that the interface is stodgy and rigid and just not modern enough.
