Tenet


Like any other movie by Christopher Nolan the “Behind the Scenes” footage he provides as extras on Blu-ray are just amazing. The recreation was really fun to do. I did not find any Interview with colorist Kostas Theodosiou about Tenet, but I assume that the color grading was very similar to Dunkirk. And: That it was a “100% photochemical process”, too. If you want to dive more into that topic I recommend this interview with Colorist Walter Volpatto on Dunkirk and Star Wars.
