Puggo I’m sure you’ve already been asked this, but did you do color corrections to the Puggo Strikes Back or is this pretty much true to the print? Trying to figure out if all that blue hue in the wampa cave was added in or if it was really like that on the film.

Color correction was done by Adywan.

With regards your question - “is this pretty much true to the print?”, it is important to understand the issues involved in capturing film. The film image is captured by a digital camera, for which a decision has to be made with respect to white-balance (among others). It’s not just a matter of grabbing what is there verbatim - the media are entirely different. Digital capture involves lighting, and ultimately a color model, and there are always decisions made at every step, and adjustments. It’s the same with printing a film, and projecting it. We will never know the exact, correct color, because there is always variation. I tried to capture it as close as I could based on my own eyes, and then had Ady correct it because I liked his color choices in earlier projects.

As for the Wampa scene - to my eyes it looked that blue on the film. Surprised me too.

(note this discussion really belongs in the PSB thread)
