Colorworks provided color grading services for Universal’s The Man With the Iron Fists, the action-adventure film directed by RZA. Senior colorist Trent Johnson describes the look of the film, shot in China by cinematographer Chi Ying Chan, as lush and rich, in keeping with the style of classic Chinese martial arts films of the ’70s and ’80s. For a flashback sequence set in the United States, Johnson developed a special color effect, desaturating the scene to black and white and then applying spot color to certain highlights. “We brought back the yellow glow of a lantern and a flame and restored the red to blood,” Johnson explains.
