I finally got around to watching 'Paris, Texas' last night and the super saturated colours through the film, particularly at the beginning, left me curious as to how it was achieved.
I'm assuming that it is almost entirely due to the choice of film stock used; if so what kind of stock renders these kind of colours, and even with this stock would anything have been done to emphasise the effect (e.g. filters, or something with the printing)?
My practical experience with film is sadly minimal so I don't have too much to draw from in terms of being familiar with the characteristic of different stock and film processes.
Thanks for your comments!
