RED Epic MX False Color Study
To prep for my first feature film using the MX sensor, I watched most every movie I could find shot with it. Grabbed a bunch of stills from each that would emulate things I might have to light for and then applied false color to them to see what was going on. Of course, this is AFTER the grade, but many cinematographers light how they want the final image to look so I assumed grading would be slight tweaks. Anywho, I think it really helped when I was on a super time crunch (most of the shoot) and had to use the IRE scale to see what was going on before pressing record.
Below are all the movies I went through. Don’t ask me their names it was too long ago 🙂
