Harlem's favorite bulletproof hero meets his match when the mysterious and powerful Bushmaster shows up to stake his own claim on the neighborhood in season two of “Marvel’s Luke Cage,” now streaming on Netflix. As with season one, Encore’s Tony D’Amore handled color grading for the latest season of the series, delivering in both SDR and HDR. Having collaborated previously, D’Amore and season two DP Petr Hlinomaz were quickly in sync and able to efficiently communicate with an established shorthand.
D’Amore explained, “The rich dark photography mixed with the warm color palette lend a bold and sexy look to the season. Petr and I both give 100 percent and I think it shows.”
Keeping in line with the strong yellow and orange palette from season one, D’Amore helped push the look even further for the sophomore outing. For guidance on set and in dailies, D’Amore provided a LUT though it was not used for the final Dolby Vision HDR grade.
