Prison Break has recently started in Australia and I'm interested in how they achieve the look.

Nobody, with the notable exception of Cold Case, normally does special lab processes for television programs. All of these effects are normally accomplished in color correction, or via a combination of compositing and color correction techniques.

worked 2nd unit as a loader on this show...

everything was processed normal, with the exception of a push one stop on some of the night scenes.

different looks were set up with the telecine colorists before, often there are greens and blues put in the shadows...
for many setups there would be a set "cool prison blue," or "prison green" look already setup, to expediate post production.

stocks used: 5279 for night int or ext., 5274 for day work, and 5218 for certain "big night scenes."

Thanks. It was the saturation of greens and blues in the mids to darks that really got my attention.Nel
