Se7en Color Correction

Been watching the DVD features on Se7en and found a great one that I really enjoyed, thought I'd share the love. Basically a step by step video with commentary on how they color corrected and re-framed shots in the final scene of Se7en. The rest of you may not be as much of a geek for this stuff as ...

Plus I gave up on a film recently 'cus it was filmed in this way and they just went completely over the top with the depth of field
I've been noticing recently that many big budget productions don't really use shallow depth of field that much anyways.

Thanks.

I just ordered a shotgun mic about an hour ago, because I'm getting really fed up with s*** audio.

RE: Videos Taken Off Youtube?

I had one video taken down, but it had actual footage of people dead and being killed.

I also just had a first on YouTube, someone posted a video of mine on their profile. Thankfully I had my name embedded in the video, and thankfully they just took it off.

Shooting took up about a 4hr afternoon, then the blue shots were about a 5min night. Editing was a hectic three hours till the deadline. :P I shouldn't have waited till the last minute.

The Fallen are Silent

My entry for the True to John Woo comp- I don't think I did a good job of being true to him, besides a few things I copied from his movies and some of his trademarks. To tell you the truth I'm alittle hesitant to post this because it just seems so horribly bad. But hey whatever. Yes, there was origi...

Holy God. Awsome effects! You do realize you now are obligated to share how you did those. :P Really nice: my only problem is how flat the picture looks. I don't know if your white balance is off, or you're purposely doing that- but that's the only thing that bugged me. Oh! And the constant VO's fro...

heh, what big shot do you mean?
Like one deal shots. Like, "we're going to have this huge a** explosion off this ways." Then one would set the camera on the tripod instead of doing it handheld like the rest of the footage: stuff like that.

Dolly shots looked really nice. The gunfire through the newspaper was pretty cool, except for the camera cut to a tripod shot- don't know why people feel the urge to put things on tripods when they're doing a big shot (I tend to do it too). The guy dying on the ground was long as hell. Color correct...

RE: Boredom + Home Alone = This

I liked the build up: my only thing is alot of the shots seemed the same, just you walking by the camera- alot. And the gun sound sounded like cr**, so it sort of detracted from the holy s*** factor of you getting blown away. Maybe speed up the initial head jerk so it looks more impactful.

What a F***ing Cool Commerical

Not really, but it's made by me so it should probably read "What a F***ing Shitty Commercial." I got bored and wanted to do a commercial type thing, so if anyone asks if I could I show them a semi incompetent pile of trash (this). About a night's works; nothing is 3d: all of it is still pictures. Cl...

It actually kind of bothers me some when people get too big into this "lose yourself, become your character" bullsh_t.

As always, top notch. Great job on the color correction, turned out very nice and bleak. I'm surprised your FPS was as high as it was during the battle scene, I know my computer would have been lagging real bad with FRAPs running.
