Preset or LUT that will get as close as possible to "Rush"
on Feb 1, 2014 at 6:58:06 pm

I rented "Rush" on Blu-ray yesterday and the color grading is the most beautiful I've ever seen on any movie. When finding out that it had been done in DaVinci Resolve and even better that they had a free version, I downloaded it and I've been playing around with it.

Now, I realize that obviously the look in Rush is achieved in part by the quality of the cameras used and that I would never get the same look with my cheap Canon 60D or my Canon XF100 video camera, but I would like to get as close as I possibly can. The look in Rush is a bit similar to the current teal/orange skin look of most movies nowadays, but it has something else to it, something that makes it look surreal.

Loading some DSLR footage in Resolve I'm already surprised at the film look I get just from applying different LUTs and playing with the log and primaries wheels, but is there any advice the more experienced users can give me to get something close to the look of "Rush"?

Thanks,

Sebastian

This is the power of month of compositing and half the driving is CGI :)
No camera in the world can capture this, or can even be mounted in that area.
I love the movie, Daniel is excellent and Ron Howard managed to capture the intense racing parts from very personal perspective, but make no mistake, this is no grading job.

The look of Rush comes from the skill of the DP, great lighting, great lenses, and a ton of post work. There was no single technique behind it.
