I've been shooting weddings for a number of years and have added film (super8 and 16mm) in recent years.
I am loving shooting the film, and I recently did my first "sit-in" on a coloring/transfer session. I did it over the internet, and you can see a truncated version of that videoconference by clicking here.
All times before this, I had sent in my film and allowed the lab to do with it whatever they pleased, and it always looks fantastic. It was very humbling to see how much work goes into it on their part to make my raw footage look pretty!
But what I want to learn is this - not going to film school and not being around those that sit in transfer sessions, I want to know (beyond "brighten that up" and "cool that off") some of the options I can tell the colorist to give my work a more signature look.
With the footage you see in the clip, what would you instruct them to do beyond what they did?
Thanks a bunch!
