I've done a couple of short films and I would love to get some thoughts when it comes the actual planning of the color grading before a shoot. Sometimes I hear filmmakers say that they shoot in flat/log, and in post-production decides how the final color look will be like.
Does anybody here do it differently? Meaning that you decide the color-look before the shoot?
If so, what's your process? Do you go to location and shoot/grade some test-shots? Adjust the lighting depending on the look? Adjust camera-settings?
