Since I have started this course i have begun to analyses as well watch films and programs. I watched Minority Report last week and noticed the unusual lighting, especially when the Precog Agatha was in the scene.

In the first youtube clip with the focus on Agatha the lighting is pretty significant in the feel of the whole scene. It makes her feel very god like, like some kind of deity like heavens light shining down on her like a biblical painting.In the second clip where they are running through the mall . I looked into how they achieved this effect and found that it wasn’t physical lights that were used to make this effect but something called bleach bypass. it’s an optical effect used in Magic Bullet v1.0 for AE has a ‘skip bleach’ preset. It’s a setting that you can change the saturating of light. I think this gives a great feel to the atmosphere of the movie.
