Black Market Trailer

  1. Hi All,

    I have just seen the trailer for Viceland's Black Market, going to be shown in the UK this week.

    I have a quick question regarding the look/colour of one shot (attached).

    I have been trying to create this just for my own satisfaction using a similar shot but I cant seem to get the highlight colours anywhere near close to what is seen in the trailer?

    Is it a really desaturated green?

    Any help would be great! Screenshot of your colour wheels if you get it would be even better!

  2. So much depends on lighting and exposure on set, it's hard to say. But I think using some highlight roll-off with soft clips, plus some highlight desat and some windows, all of that can do a lot towards "shaping" the material. I generally lean towards having very clean, white highlights unless the director & DP specifically want to go with an eerie, unsettling feel. For example, I did a sci-fi movie a couple of months ago where I had a preset for "the evil green look," and a lot of that was green/cyan highlights with some added glow.

  3. I keep my highlight yellowish... I'm romantic...

    But yes, there is a lot of desaturation in that shot, with a light feeling of warmth....
