Welcome to 2014!
Time to look forward to a New Year, and to reflect on the last. I have just updated History for Colorists with some old and some new dates in part as a result of a new project I am working on. Sadly 2013 saw the end of Fuji film stock and many countries, many regions no longer have any film labs within easy reach. Film is not dead, but it is very much an expensive minority medium now. On the upside we are seeing continued improvements in Academy Color Encoding System (ACES), and I am currently working on an experimental documentary in Korea that uses an ACES workflow with many different sources (film and digital) to document the closure of the last film lab in Korea. ACES is for me the real next generation of our film history. Watch out for more information and experiences of ACES as the project gets completed. An earlier paper on ACES basics is linked here.
And dont forget to download the latest Colorist Glossary - now with over 600 terms and including DCI, storage and data terms.
I will be running more ICA training classes again soon and am planning to introduce a couple of new titles this year. Most of my classes are suitable for colorists of any geading system. Details of classes can be found on the new ICA web site at icolorist.com
