Hi Roger,

In the Vegas Set in Blade Runner I wonder why you have used a red lens filter instead of changing the color in the grade afterwards.

In general do you prefer to have the desired look in camera or are there certain situations where you think this should be done in the grade?

I certainly prefer to create the color in the lighting and not by grading. I like to leave as little as possible to the grade. There was a combination of colors in that Vegas set and I find making an overall color shift in grading doesn't translate in the same way as using gels on the lighting and a filter in front of the lens.
