Teal & Orange color grading became popular among Anglo-Saxons colorists from the beginning of digital post-production some years ago. It is a matter of opposition between two complementary colors : teal and orange. It can be initiated during the shooting with the choice of sets, costumes and makeup, or postprocessed… In general, skin, especially character’s face is turned artificially to warm or tanned, and backgrounds are cooled to give maximum color contrast to images. Painters, such as Kandinsky, already developed similar colors grammars, the best known being blue and yellow, teal and orange may be seen as a rotation of blue and yellow adapted to film (indeed, yellow faces are generally not interpreted as healthy). This color grading is widely used for Hollywood blockbusters. It is suitable for all kinds of modern films and TV shows that want to show positive values (it is not relevant of course for vampires, horror, … films) and can be translated into infinite number of shades.
This example did not need human intervention, automatic treatments was directly applied on rushes.
The Nexyad Skins are based on a high-tech combining image analysis, human visual perception analysis, image processing and color theories of great pictorial movements. The image data are statistically processed and then by a powerful neural network, and artificial intelligence. Artists’s creativity is released with the Nexyad skins, which also allow lower post-production costs to the financials and enhance the viewer's experience by ensuring visual result worthy of the great Hollywood productions.
