Teal & Orange color grading became popular among Anglo-Saxons colorists from the beginning of digital post-production some years ago. It is a matter of opposition between two complementary colors : teal and orange. It can be initiated during the shooting with the choice of sets, costumes and makeup, or postprocessed… In general, skin, especially character’s face is turned artificially to warm or tanned, and backgrounds are cooled to give maximum color contrast to images. Painters, such as Kandinsky, already developed similar colors grammars, the best known being blue and yellow, teal and orange may be seen as a rotation of blue and yellow adapted to film (indeed, yellow faces are generally not interpreted as healthy). This color grading is widely used for Hollywood blockbusters. It is suitable for all kinds of modern films and TV shows that want to show positive values (it is not relevant of course for vampires, horror, … films) and can be translated into infinite number of shades.
