Mark Romanek's Janet - Got 'til It's Gone Color Grade

Recommended Posts

I remember the day this video made it's debut on TV, those amazing warm pastel colors ! Can someone please tell me how was this image processed ? I think it has a noticeable yellow cast to it, and crushed backs. The colors are so vibrant and warm although I don't think it was shot on film. Any Ideas what camera Mark used ? I went to anything that seemed related in google ,but still no result...

vibrant? if anything I feel it's a bit desaturated, smokey background (00:39) gives more contrast-separation between foreground/background. More of a yellow-green type of warmth, probably supplemented by muted set design. I think most videos back then were shot on 35mm, I can't say for certain regarding this video, but I would think a Janet Jackson video could pull such a budget for 35mm :-)

Well maybe i didn't choose the right word to describe it. I think you are right about the desaturation.

The scenes are lighted so harsh , that colors seem to pop out. This video was shot just after "Scream" which had a budget around 7 000 000 $, so you are probably right about the 35mm :) Still I cant sleep at night thinking about the post process for that piece of footage. Sorry for my bad english and thanks for your reply.

I remember when this video first came out, truly excellent. I always want to say it was probably shot on Fuji stock, but that just may be the color of the lighting influencing the palette and leading me to think that. Fuji does have a special responsiveness to the color tones used, so maybe I'm right.
