Hi guys,

I'm using Fuji Eterna 500T 16mm (tungsten type) and my director wants a rather washed out, desaturated look keeping some objects potent and rich in colour.
For example, there's a grey-blue bias in a bedroom scene and it's generally desaturated but we want to emphasize a bright red carnival flag. Should I do a blue flag and shoot everything in orange tungsten and do a reversal? I'm dealing with walls that are white and dark blue and there's some sunlight coming through which I can probably block out but it's not preferred.

Thanks heaps
Jesse

If your bathroom is blue-grey and the flag is bright red, then don't you already have the look right in front of the camera?

What are your post-plans? I think even in Final Cut's Color, you can do a secondary correction in which you can key the red and saturate it while desaturating the rest of the image. Helps to have a colorist.
