During Deadpool’s production in Vancouver, they ran camera and lens tests together then devised a set of reference looks on-set, much of which could be created in camera to build a natural look. They also tested different film grains extensively that were used for some of the versions of the movie, with the exception of HDR, IMAX and Dolby Vision.
“We were going for a gritty look. We didn’t want a very saturated, bright, warm superhero movie. We wanted it to feel much darker, colder,” Stipan explained. “The director Tim Miller is also an animator and VFX artist and was orchestrating the movie visually and worked closely with us on the colour process.”
