This new in-person workshop is designed for Directors, Cinematographers, DITs, Post Supervisors, VFX, Conform Artists, Assistant Colorists, Colorists and Editors.

We’ll begin with the general principles of color science without getting too technical or theoretical. Kevin effortlessly collaborates with cinematographers and directors to ensure optimal capture of the intended visual mood. He serves as the bridge between the creative team and the technical crew. We discuss the psychology of seeing and the language of color. Production is the main focus, and we’ll cover how camera settings affect the image. Then we explore how colorists and cinematographers tackle Look Management with color science, LUTs and CDLs and the importance of consistency. By the end of the course, participants will understand the factors that need to be agreed and documented in workflow documents so that the Director’s vision is achieved, editors and VFX can monitor images consistent with the intended Look, and the delivery requirements are met.

Topics covered include, but are not limited to:

  • How our eyes are tricked, and how color influences our mood and emotions.
  • The Defining Color - Exploring color from both technical and artistic points of view.
  • Managing Color - Understand the differences between the appliance of science and the art of the craft.
  • Setting the Look in Production - Learn how cinematographers and colorists implement looks. The more you look the more you see.
  • Workflow Documents - How to mastermind the masterplan.
  • Meeting Standards - Is there anything standard about standards?

 

You Will Learn

  • What color is and how we perceive it.
  • What is the difference between a color space and a transfer function?
  • Scene-referred and output-referred workflows.
  • About display color spaces

"Kevin is a great instructor, I highly recommend this course to those with different levels of experience and also to self-taught colorists who may want to set some knowledge bases."
- Luna Sáez, Colorist

"This is a master class to learn the color pipeline properly. Even if you already have some knowledge, this course will help you to clarify the concepts that you were confused about. The best part is that you can follow along with the exercises, so you can learn theory and practice at the same time. You can ask questions directly throughout the class and get very detailed answers. Even if it's someone else's question, the answers are incredibly helpful as you can apply what you've learned to different cases."
- Sun Kim, Production Technologist, Netflix

"The colour Pipeline Mentor Program provides a great foundation into colour science and filled the gaps in my knowledge to support DOPs and achieve their vision while confidently knowing what is done on set will carry through the post production workflow. What this course really helps with is uncover why we do things the way we do and untangles the mystery behind a lot of the options and settings DIT’s are faced with everyday. While on the program I have implemented my first ACES colour management pipeline for my next project and now really get why anyone working with colour should look at ACES as it take out a lot of the hard work and potential issues in post production. Overall I highly recommend getting on the program is you job involves anything to do with colour."
