The drum of course is based on the drum kit of Ringo Starr of the Beatles.  George’s actual drum kit doesn’t really look this.

BlackMagic Color Grade

https://mattkprovideo.com/2017/12/14/blackmagic-color-grade/

For a recent wedding shoot I had a freelancer use a Black Magic  camera. I have heard very good things about that camera, how the footage looks just like 35mm motion picture film!  I was very excited. And I was a bit nervous how that footage would mix in when edited in with footage with my other cameras.

It was so much smaller than I thought it would be.

What I saw in the viewfinder screen concerned me, everything was a dull desaturated greenish grey.  The camera operator told me to relax, that all blackmagic footage looks like that until color graded in Davinci Resolve.

Well I don’t have Davinci Resolve. I ran the footage through Adobe After Effects and added an adjustment layer with AUTO COLOR and a lot of vibrancy came back into the image.

Then I added “Brightness and Contrast”. Lowering the Brightness and increasing the Contrast helped even more.

It still didn’t look right.

I added a third adjust layer and used HUE AND SATURATION and increased the saturation of the reds and blues and it started to look like the other cameras.

I set it to render then read THIS article:

It says I should have used  Effects>Synthetic Aperture.

Hmm I will have to try that on the next shots. So far I am not that impressed.  It seems just like my video footage, not this marvelous film look I was expecting. Then again it is most likely the problem is my limited experience with color grading footage from the BlackMagic, and not the camera itself.
