I've got a question about the processing for the film "The Machinist". Does anyone know if they used Bleach Bypass or CCE processing in order to achieve those saturated colors and dark blacks?

Any specs that you have concerning this film would be great.

Thanks so much.

Hey Mitch,

I just saw that on DVD last night. Started slow but the pay-off worked well. From what I gather, these days, most movies are still shot as close to the film's specs so that the maximum image quality makes it to post production. Then, things are altered, usually digitally, to achieve the stylistic looks found in movies today. I'd hazard a guess that that's what was done on The Machinist as well.
