Kodacolor Film Colour Correction 

This example has lost its red dyes, leaving only blue and greens.

Most cine film formats including Kodacolor are in fact a combination of three separate primary colours made from three separate chemical film emulations that are bonded to a clear cellulose or plastic film base. 

Over time, these three chemicals can break down at different rates meaning the original colour of the film can shift dramatically. Kodacolor is more prone to this than other films as the chemical wash  used to develop the film instantly is still present for the life of the film. This can make the films get darker over time too. For example above left, the red dye has faded away leaving mostly the blue and green colours behind. By digitally adding back the red element on the right a more natural colour is obtained. 

Different reels of film do this at different rates towards any one or all three primary colours. We assess every reel of film on its own and apply colour correction on a reel by reel basis. This is included free on all our transfers, we don't see this as an option extra!

We check all three primary colours agains our own benchmarks.
