It's easy to assume the way a movie looks is just the way it would look if you were standing there on set... but it's not.

The look of a movie is designed to put you there emotionally. It's that psychological texturing that transforms cinematography, art, visual effects and performance into human experience. You're no longer "seeing" a movie. You are "IN" the movie. That's the challenge and triumph of post production color.

So for The Hungry Games, a short parody trailer I colored for Deseret Book's Pretty Darn Funny web series I grabbed some reference stills from The Hunger Games trailer and went to work.
