    Kodachrome was a nice film.

    Re: How was a Kodak Colorama made?

    can anyone explain how to make saturated 60s color style film like these coloramas? What were they doing? So many have browns and skin tones roughly in the right spots, but the reds, yellows, etc are stunningly vivid.

    Now that's a backstory worth knowing.

    Vivid color? Transparencies like Kodachrome to enlarged internegs to prints would be one method. Dye Transfer would be another; but Sal wants to deny the existence of the quality standard of those same decades. So be it. I found out what I needed to know. Big prints made directly from color negs like Vericolor had their predictable less saturated bias. Contrast-increase masks could be added to help. With dye transfer, contrast and saturation could be highly controlled.

    Huh? Drew, when shown to be wrong, you deflect about as well and with as much intensity as does a well-known temporary resident of D.C.

    I denied nothing. The subject/title of this thread is "How was a Kodak Colorama made?" I and others have posted documentation that answers the question. You insist on posting about irrelevant subjects. When one finds oneself in a hole, it's generally accepted that the best course of action is to stop digging. You'll be better off if/when you put down the shovel.

    All you've done is a bit of superficial web surfing, Sal, and have extrapolated certain standardized procedures that might have made sense in later years way back into the long history of the project. Bob S. already contributed personal observations which refute your position. I gave an anecdote relevant to just one aspect of the overall project, but which I heard with ample technical detail to accept it as reliable. I became aware of the services of that big lab 40 years ago; but there's no way those kind of technical secrets would have been divested back then.

    My guess is they were hand painted on a grid full size, like a cartoon gell...

    Projection on site seems unlikely...
    I did a mini version of it. The negative is projected onto a strip of paper, stretched horizontally, to some extent, as wide as one desires. Then the negative is shifted in the carrier with the worm-gear mechanism to bring up the next strip to be exposed. In my case only 20" wide, as that was as large as I could process at the time. Then the positives are affixed in order in alignment with each other.
