A Prairie Home Companion

The only complaint I have is the artifacts in the green & cyan highlights, apparently this is a problem with the Sony F900? You can't really tell based upon these screen caps of the trailer, but in the theater the green on Lindsey's blond hair and the cyan used in Woody Harrelson & John C. Reilly's routine would have issues:
The latest ASC has a good article on it, (excerpt quote from Ed Lachman) but I'm still unclear what the real problem was:
?I generally work with a lot with gels, and I like to manipulate color temperature. I use color contrast within the frame, and it?s very important to me how one color plays against another and how that comes back on film. I discovered that digital [sensors] were more responsive to some of my gels and less responsive to others than film. For example, purples and blues responded differently than they do on film, warm colors tend to bleed if they?re very saturated, and some portions of the green spectrum can be very hard to capture. As a result, I had to do a lot of experimenting with gels to get the results I was after.?

There was just one point in the movie, around the time of those clips with the green-lit scenes, as Virginia Madsen steps up into the wings to watch the show, where the movie for a little while went funny-looking, with a faint screen-door grid pattern over the image (not the pattern of a net filter though -- the squares were larger and blockier.)

Easy for me to say.

By the way, I liked the angel in Home Prairie Companion.
