dream-like shots in Gladiator
Posted 03 February 2006 - 09:34 AM
As far as I can remember, there were time lapse shots of evolving sky, then a shot of a running horse, then those shots at the end of the film when Maximums sees his home in a vision, and of course the one
when he touches a rock on the ground with his hand and wakes up.
They all have high contrast, and a wierd look
Was this done digitally?

Would be interested to hear others views on the look though. Maybe cross-processed reversal? Strange colour shift and more contrast?

Since time-lapse is my specialty I watched what they did over and over. I'm not sure if they did a DI on this, if not I imagine they got the look through filtration or they added extra blue in the printing stage. Later in the movie there is a real time shot of the same setting, just outside the gate looking towards the house and farm. This shot looked more natural.

It had a hypnotising effect to it, looked 3D
Also, as far as I know, the film was printed on Premiere stock, that must have helped too.
