Well, I like learning about movie making process, so this is one of those things that make me curious. I was watching "Flawless" over the weekend (but I notice this with a lot of movies if I watch the "making of" pieces on the DVD.) As they are depicting London in 1960s, they apparently decided to make the colors throughout the movie have this "pastel" look. I wonder how the colors on movies end up like that. Vivid blue sky, nice green meadows (or in this case pastel indoor colors) just don't look anything like what you would get from a hand held camera in home movies. It becomes especially obvious when I watch the "behind the scenes" specials on the DVD where people are interviewed in the same locations, and lo and behold, the environment doesn't have that fairy tale look. I know that well controlled lighting helps, as it gets rid of harsh shadows or clipped highlights, but is the most of the rest due to better cameras (I don't think they use very crappy ones even for the behind the scenes speacials), very special filters or just some basic (and maybe not so basic) post processing?
