Overview

Overview

The Color Managed Workflow for Film and TV Productions workshop is designed to look at the process of color management in modern digital film production, from the capturing of motion pictures as digital images to the final delivery of digital master files.

While in the traditional, linear production process, color grading was left until the end of post-production, a newly emerging approach is challenging this view. Color management establishes and maintains the desired look for a production throughout the production process: from on-set monitoring, editorial and VFX to finishing and final mastering.

This course teaches all the tools, technologies and processes of color management in digital cinematography, explaining how colour management works on set, post-production workflows and best practices and common issues. This course is ideal for DITs, DOPs, VFX artists, post production supervisors, editors and junior colorists. In fact, anyone with a desire to get into digital color management will benefit from attending the course.

Computers are provided for each student.
