Hello Roger, I am curious about your process when it comes to selecting your LUT. Do you model your LUT after a film stock? Since you use mainly one LUT, how does it change if at all from film to film? 

I believe that some film stocks have color tints, has there ever been an instance when you altered the hue of colors in your LUT? 

I'm looking forward to seeing your work in Goldfinch, 

Thank you.

I was just testing my LUT for an upcoming project. It is something I developed with E Film some years ago and I have hardly changed it at all. I don't intend to change it this time either. It is not modeled after any film stock but something we developed by eye. I am sure I will 'override' the LUT on certain scenes but it serves as a good base level for my dailies.
