EFILM Colors the Final Chapter of the 'Hunger Games' Series

Publish date:

EFILM, a Deluxe Creative Services company, recently completed color grading on the 2D, 3D and DolbyVision versions of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay--Part 2. Colorist Mitch Paulson worked in Autodesk Lustre to color the final installment of the franchise.

Directed by Francis Lawrence and shot by Jo Willems, ASC, the film opens in the same hospital where audiences last saw protagonist Katniss Everdeen. "The first shots have a look that's virtually identical to the end of the previous episode," Paulson explains. The filmmakers, he says, "want people to be able to watch the whole series all together and have a feeling of continuity."

The then similarity fades as a new journey takes her 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, but we always want the audience to be able to see what's happening. Jo did a great job of finding little ways to motivate some kind of light and then we fine tuned it all in the grade."
