We are on the mission to give you the most relevant training and make you better equipped and prepared for the work as Feature Film Colorist. This class has been created with the focus on an Independent Feature Film Post Production and how to succeed in the industry that demands better image quality at faster turnaround times than ever before. 

The course covers how to best setup grading theatre as well as the best practices for dealing with the client, delivery and conform. With an increased demand for Episodic TV finishing, we have updated our training curriculum and now we have added 3 new chapters that cover Color Management, HDR mastering, Subtitles, and DCP creation.

From the business perspective, we share some great tips that came out of 12 years of experience of running a boutique post facility. We will also look at the ever-growing demand for Television and the opportunities that this brings.

This masterclass has launched careers of hundreds of colorists in the past and we are committed to seeing you succeed too. Don't miss this opportunity to work alongside Master Colorist Dado Valentic who was responsible for some of the biggest movies and TV series.
