Hi, I am a newcomer to this forum, and I would like to say hi to everyone here. I'm no cinematographer but cinematography has always interested me quite a bit. One of the areas I am really interested in the use of colour grading in films and how colour can evoke mood when you are watching a film.
With the advent of modern post-production software, I understand it is easier for cinematographer to colour correct their films. And given most modern films make heavy use of teal, orange and blue when it comes to colour grading the films, I was wondering if there are any projects whereby people "update" old movies like Ben-Hur, Spartacus or Taxi driver to give it a more modern look?
It will be interesting to see how older movies would look like if they were produced in 2013, with modern computers aiding the directors and cinematographers.
