Dunkirk


The Film processing was done by Fotokem in Los Angeles. Starting with traditional color timing, Dunkirk had traditional film post-production as much as possible.

Read this interview on Dunkirk with senior color timer Dan Muscarella at Fotokem: „Dunkirk Post: Wrangling Two Large Formats“ by Michael Goldman, for more information about the process:

And click here for another highly recommended interview about Dunkirk (and Star Wars) with Colorist Walter Volpatto. Quote: „In Dunkirk, the hero is the film print. Hoyte van Hoytema, the cinematographer, and Christopher Nolan wanted to have an entirely photochemical workflow. They wanted to make a movie like they were made back during WWII. Every single shot you see in Dunkirk was finished in film first.“
