I remember the day this video made it's debut on TV, those amazing warm pastel colors ! Can someone please tell me how was this image processed ? I think it has a noticeable yellow cast to it, and crushed backs. The colors are so vibrant and warm although I don't think it was shot on film. Any Ideas what camera Mark used ? I went to anything that seemed related in google ,but still no result...
vibrant? if anything I feel it's a bit desaturated, smokey background (00:39) gives more contrast-separation between foreground/background. More of a yellow-green type of warmth, probably supplemented by muted set design. I think most videos back then were shot on 35mm, I can't say for certain regarding this video, but I would think a Janet Jackson video could pull such a budget for 35mm :-)

The scenes are lighted so harsh , that colors seem to pop out. This video was shot just after "Scream" which had a budget around 7 000 000 $, so you are probably right about the 35mm Still I cant sleep at night thinking about the post process for that piece of footage. Sorry for my bad english and thanks for your reply.
