How to get such colours?

Hey!

How do you think they got such colours like seen here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=uQFjavLR52Q&feature=user

I can get it too with Premiere CS3 and and a sony z1e or is this done with "higher" cameras?

thanks

You can play around with the colors with secondary color correction.

In premiere this might be tedious to do. But you can try either:
A- Using the hue/saturation filter.
B- Using the chroma keyer. Key out the color range you want to affect. In a layer below (duplicate the video onto itself), use the color corrector to manipulate the colors.

You can't get those results unless you shoot 35mm film like they did...

I don't think that was film. The blown highlights look more like video. I'm guessing they used a decent camera, filters, and color correction to achieve this look. It also seems they may have used a bit of lighting gear like reflectors and/or scrims on a couple of shots at the beach. Of course, the night shots were fully lit including the trees in the background.

I can get color at least this good on the V1. Of course, the heavy compression is working against this presentation, but it's color is certainly not impossible with an HDV camera. The CMOS cameras are particularly good with color.
