If those really huge square brackets seem scary, it’s all too tempting to cast off the math and fall back on statements such as:
- It looks digital.
- It isn’t organic.
- It’s too clean.
- It feels dead. Not alive, like film.
- Those are candy colors.
- It looks too much like video.
It’s extremely tempting to speak from behind the opaque veil of divine-artistic-intuition. But it’s not good to hide from the truth. If one tries to pierce the veil of divine-artistic-intuition, one is often labeled a heretic and their opinion is cast away by the bourgeois (gab gab gossip gossip gasp glare). As such, many attempts at straightening the path and getting proper color-science into the mix, tend to fail. If someone with enough creative credentials steps into the conversation and makes an observation of divine-artistic-intuition, they win (golf clap). Data, math and science don’t override invalid conclusions in modern Hollywood.
