Do you think "A Night to Remember" would look bad if it was colorized?

More of my coloured shots. I do have to point out that I did make a mistake on Californian's funnel by making in magenta or purple than pink as its company colour.
These are lovely, but I noticed you use Overlay blend mode. It might not be but using it extensively makes it feel... fake? What you have done is great btw but make sure to keep a consistent check on the windows, when we doing ANTR together? :)

These coloured shots are mostly me just trying to colour the film as how it should've been (I'm not the only one doing this way) instead of being coloured by an AI, all by myself. I don't plan to even colour the whole thing. The only thing I can do is to post examples. Like this one of the opening scene after the 1912 text fades out and shows us an LNWR passenger train.

My test of this footage from A Night to Remember film in colour.
Again using an already uploaded by Diogo Santos (Diogo Gasparini on YouTube).

Keep in mind that this is just a test to see how it would look like in colour as I still don't have an official palette of the model so some parts (like the funnels) can look out of place.

I may be in the minority, but the wonderful aesthetic of black and white trumps artificial colour every time for me.

Yes. Some movies just work better in B&W. I don't have a problem colorizing B&W movies as long as the originals are available to watch. Just don't colorize the first 15 mins of the "Wizard of Oz". It was part of the fantasy going from a B&W world to a colorfull one. Cheers.

That looks amazing and professional! Which software did you use for it?

I used DaVinci Resolve to mask where I want to put the colours and key frame them. For static shots like this one however, I didn't need to key frame the colours as there's not that much movement other than the film reel.

I do agree with most of it you said @Seumas. But DeOldify and other AI colouring sites are not really good with colouring B/W films. They can recongnise a limited range of colours. Hence that first coloured version of the film looks not that great as the colours jump from scene to scene and are not properly synced. Comparing to how I did in a test footage I shared. I don't plan to do the whole film, only a small montage of scenes that I can do.
