I was watching an ASC Q&A when you spoke about BR2049. You mentioning gelling the windows in the Budapest stock exchange building  in a way that allowed variation in color that you couldn’t properly achieve in post (more red on bottom - more yellow on top).

Can you describe what the process was for gelling that many windows? How did you guys go about layering 2 different gels on the windows?

There was no special process. It just required quite a number of rolls of gel.

The windows were always quite hot in camera so there was little or no danger of seeing any imperfections in the way the two layers set.
