One of the most commonly used print film emulations in Hollywood is Kodak 2383. It’s a legendary stock that was used in films like Joker (2019), Pirates of the Caribbean, The Dark Knight, and many more. In this video, we will try to recreate Kodak 2383 Print Film Emulation using Glenderaterra LUT from our Premium Bundle.

Glenderaterra LUT was designed by closely analyzing the Print Film Emulation Color Palette of common film stocks like Kodak 2383 and Kodak 2393. The LUT can work with footage from literally any camera: BMPCC, ARRI, DJI, SONY, CANON, RED. Of Course given that the footage is properly color corrected and has balanced whites. (If you don’t know how to color correct a footage, here’s a quick tutorial for that.)

This is not our first time recreating a look from a major Hollywood Inspiration. We’ve already recreated several blockbuster looks in the past, in premiere pro. Some of them are End of the F***ing World, Call me by your name, Blade Runner 2049, No time to die, The Witcher, and many more.

Steps

    1. We’ll add a Lumetri Panel, and we are going to color correct the shot.
    2. We’ll add another Lumetri Panel, and apply LUT under the creative tab.
    3. We’ll add another Lumetri Panel and lift Green Curve from the mid-tones region.
    4. We’re going to add our third Lumetri layer and place it above our LUT-Lumetri Layer.
    5. Using this Lumetri, select and adjust skin tones.

Don’t worry if you didn’t get any of it, you can find a video tutorial towards the end of our blog. Check out the following examples of before and after color-grading using our “Waithe” LUT.
