How to recreate the colors of Last Tango in Paris
Posted 13 October 2008 - 03:06 AM
I'm looking to figure out how to recreate the gold / gray coloration of Last Tango in Paris - is this a lighting or post thing? I was thinking of just using a slight CTO.
I've included some images as an example..
Thanks in advance,

In terms of lighting, it seems to me Storaro did a some mixed lighting. The backgrounds and exterior scenes have that winter, soft, northern European light look to it, but augmented by harder lights at different color temperatures, mostly tungsten for the interior scenes. There are some greens and a lot of sepias that look like they were done with lighting rather than filters. In addition to CTO, try a couple of green, yellow filters or gels, tobacco maybe? The sets and wardrobe are also pretty stark and muted. Definetely a combination of factors and techniques.
