EFILM Colors the Final Chapter of 'The Hunger Games'

Publish date:

EFILM recently completed color grading on the 2D, 3D and Dolby Vision versions of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2. Colorist Mitch Paulson worked in Autodesk Lustre to color the final episode of the series.

Directed by Francis Lawrence and shot by Jo Willems, ASC, the film opens in the hospital where audiences last saw heroine Katniss Everdeen. “The first shots have a look that’s virtually identical to the end of the previous episode,” Paulson explains.

The similarity ends there as Katniss moves through a darker, more desolate world. “The challenge in this movie is that a lot of it takes place in dark rooms and tunnels and outside at night,” the colorist says, “but we always want the audience to be able to see what’s happening.”
