Hello ,
I am filming a S16mm short called Red Hood.

We are getting the rushes from technicolor UK on digibeta.

The director would like to desaturate the colors completely leaving a B/W image but he wants lo leave the reds on. This is called Red Hood, and it?s the fairy tale story used as a canvas for this project. Since there won't be really a budget for a DI, I was hoping to get as close as possible to this idea in a TK grade, mastering hopefully to HD mainly because I was trying to avoid any tape to tape grade if possible although now I'm thinking this may be a job for a Flame, Smoke, Inferno, Combustion, Shake or similar. Perhaps grading normally and do all the color desaturations later on. We won't be scanning back film.

I would appreciate any other suggestions you may have.

Thanks
