Colorist Strategies, Look Generation and Advanced Color Design

I have now confirmed dates and location for the complete set of three3 classes, each lasting 2 days. This will be the first time all three classes have run together and colorists can take any or all of the three. The classes are open to users of all systems, including Resolve, Film Master, Baselight, and Mistika. This is a great way tomeet colorists from varied systems and discover more about how they work. There is a £250 discount if you sign up for the full 3 days! Click here for details and Registration.

While I was at IBC this year I went to see Planet of the Apes presented from a Christie 6 laser projector in 4k stereoscopic 3D with Dolby Atmos surround sound. The peak of modern cinema. I thought. Last Thursday I saw Interstellar at the Odeon Leicester Square on 70mm film because much of it was shot that way. Read on...

In October I launched a new colorist class "Advanced Color Design" We had a fun, inspirational and sometimes surprising two days studying color harmonies and how we can apply it to grading.

Details of classes can be found on the ICA web site at icolorist.com
