Cool Videos: What if Zack Snyder's Man of Steel was in color?
If you're one of those people who thought MAN OF STEEL was too dark (color wise, not the tone), than this video is for you. VideoLab has posted an interesting video on YouTube featuring shots from the Zack Snyder movie with the natural color and brightness restored, making it look more like the previous Superman films.

VideoLab also explained why some of the shots might look a little off, and how they went about creating the color corrected clips. Which version do you prefer?
The results we achieved are obviously a bit oversaturated and contain contrast artifacts. Since our source footage already contained severe color-grading decisions, it was far from optimal and, at best, this is an approximation. If the raw footage had been colored in a more natural and pleasing manner, it would actually look SIGNIFICANTLY better than what you see here...Synthetic Aperture's Color Finesse and some color exclusion adjustments did most of the heavy lifting in our color correction and re-grade, but each clip required a cocktail of secondary corrections.
