Beautiful mind Nash suffered reflects through lighting (2 replies and 1 comment)
Dear master how did you find the lighting style for 'beautiful mind' movie. Nash suffered by delusions, hallucination, and paranoia. You and ron Howard did discussed while prepping how he want to reflects his suffering through lighting!
We had many discussions about how to depict Nash's delusions. I am a great believer in 'less is more' so I lobbied for as much as possible to be done 'in camera', which is what you see in the film. To some degree the audience had to believe it could all be real.
Master roger if you want same orange look of the beginning in digital what would you do. I mean how do you achieve the same orange light flashing look in digital camera. Do you get the exact color in just color correction!
I have achieved that same look with a deeper red in a DI. It is quite easy if not exactly the same as doing it in a negative. You could experiment in Photoshop.
