Here’s my clumsy amateur attempt and doing a colour correction of the Grindhouse Edition, a personal project for fun and nothing else. I only took screenshots and colour corrected them using Photoshop through a mix of photographic filters and colour boosting, I have no video editing skills whatsoever so don’t think there is a video of this colour correction lying around the internet because it doesn’t exist. I admit I’m having a lot of fun with this and will keep posting if you guys like what I’ve done. So far I’ve only done the first 25 minutes and I must say the most challenging part when doing the colour correction is keeping 3PO golden and preserving anything that’s green that way. The reason I’m doing this is because as we all know the Grindhouse Ed lacks blue and anything that’s supposed to be blue (Luke’s lightsaber for example) looks greenish/turqouise/aquamarine, and I thought it would be really fun if somebody made the effort of bringing out the blues.
So without further ado here’s some screenshots. Enjoy.
Now I know this isn’t perfect and for the most part I had to trust my instincts, but I’m rather pleased with the results. Feel free to criticise my work.
