A STUDY ON
SOFT 2 STRIP


REFERENCES

Here are some stills from movies which inspired my to do my own “Soft 2 Strip PoweGrade” Look Pack. It started with “Shutter Island” and “Silence” by Martin Scorsese. “Jurassic World” by Colin Trevorrow and “Inglorious Basterds” by Quentin Tarantino. .

It is a variation of the popular “Teal & Orange Look” but has more “brownish” (muted, desaturated colors). The green are also often shifted into a “deep” teal. For me, it looks a bit like a “Technicolor 2 Strip” Look, but less harsh than a true Technicolor 2 Strip Look, so I call this Look “Soft 2 Strip”.

This collection shows a variety of looks and I choose stills from movies where you can see that there is a variation in saturation in the same movies as well. “Inglorious Basterds” is a perfect example of how you can see the same look more saturated in some scenes than in other scenes.
