RG301 Virtual: Looks and Matching

In this course, you will learn to bring your movie or sequence to life through the use of color correction. 


***PLEASE NOTE: This virtual training session will take place in the PACIFIC TIME ZONE.***

In this creative workshop, you will learn how color correction can bring creative projects to life. We'll review film sequences and discuss how the color and mood enhance the film. You'll learn how to create the traditional "looks" from movies, TV commercials, and music videos, and then how to match those looks shot to shot and across the whole scene.  

Warren will address the different challenges presented by each sequence or camera, along with the different creative ways to color them. Students then get the chance to do the same in a timed situation, like a real session but with Warren playing the client’s role. Each grade is then reviewed as a group, simulating a client review session. 

Students are encouraged to bring their own footage to work on and share with the class.

Here is a sample of some of the media used: 

  • TVC beauty type commercial shot on the BMCC. Great for doing very soft/mist type looks.  
  • A war sequence shot on Sony F3. It’s fantastic for a Saving Private Ryan Bleach Bypass grade, a hot Jungle look, or the classic Day for Night. 
  • House of Cards, shot for an ACS workshop. This is a re-creation of an original scene from the classic Netflix series.
  • A BMW fast cut commercial shot in various conditions on Alexa. 
  • How many ways can you color a wedding? 
  • Matching an interview sequence shot on a RED, BMD Pocket, Sony iPhone 11. This is not easy, trust me.

What equipment will I need? 

  1. A laptop or desktop PC or MAC capable of running the latest DaVinci Resolve software. Resolve is a good benchmark for the type of machine needed.  
  2. Two monitors are preferred but not essential. This means you can have your software on one monitor and the instructor on the other.  
  3. A headphone set and microphone are essential.  
  4. Check that you have a steady, reliable Internet connection.  
  5. Ability to download 15GB of training footage. 

We run a pre-class flight check for each student before the class begins.

How will I get the training footage and supporting documents? 
A week before your class you’ll receive a download link. This will enable you to be confident and comfortable of your setup before the class begins. 

Can I keep the training footage after the class?
Yes. Media and any handouts can be used to progress your learning. 

Will I get a recording of the class? 
Yes. All classes are recorded and distributed as a temporary streaming link after the course concludes.

Are the ICA virtual classes certified like the classroom?
Yes, you will receive a digital ICA certificate.

Can I still become an ICA member?
Yes, you will be able to get your bio on the ICA website and will have access to discounts from the sponsors.
