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?
