  1. Hi, I've read over a few debates about blue vs. green screen. Mostly, people say blue and green are about even. Each has it's disadvantages. I thought though that some sources leaned slightly towards blue. Because of the fact that it is further from skin tone than green. Also, blonde hair contains a fair amount of green. And blue spill is not as noticeable as green spill. However, when ever I see a behind the scenes of a major motion picture, the actors seem to be against a green screen. Anyone know why that is? There's probably some use of blue screen in Hollywood, but I haven't seen it recently.
  2. Cool. Thanks for all your replies. I've definitely got a starting place now to do some test shots. In the mean time, I'll keep studying Leone's films.
  3. Hi, I'm using some digital compositing tools to try and mimic as best I can the look of Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns (A Fistful of Dollars, A Few Dollars More, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly). Sources say the color is done in Technicolor. I've found a method for getting a technicolor look (based on how they did it for "Aviator"). But this mimics Technicolor of the 30s. All the colors are very saturated. Leone's films seem to be more desaturated for that dry, dirty western look. But they do not look like bleach bypass or ENR. According to another thread, he would have used Kodak 5251, 50 ASA tungsten. Can anyone provide me with information as to how to better mimic his look. Whether it be information on the film used? maybe filters used? processing? Thanks. Stu
