Look Inspiration – Bond Movie Inspired Retro Look

January 23, 2016

Dan shares his attempt and look inspiration in DaVinci of a fabulous Bond movie inspired 35mm film look from the music video Genghis Khan by Miike Snow.


As soon as I’d seen the amazing bond movie-style music video for Genghis Kahn by Miike Snow  I knew I’d have to try and replicate the look.

Shot on 35mm film with vintage lenses the video echos of the classic Sean Connery era James Bond vs Evil Super Villen battle.

Let’s start by checking out the video below!

Miike Snow “Genghis Khan” // Dir: Ninian Doff from Ninian Doff on Vimeo.

As you can see the video has both stunning texture and color pallets. The art direction plays a HUGE part of this look but we will do our best to replicate the tone and mood in the grade.

The video was shot by Patrick Meller on 35mm film.

The video is a mix of classic lenses and using the right film stock.

In the video insight below I do my best to try and replicate the look using Arri Alexa source footage and I think I got it pretty close!
