“Color My World”
Colorists are the hidden rock-stars of the film world. Sure, the actors and directors may get all the attention, but a colorist is often the last creative professional to put an indelible imprint on the movie. Whether it’s the deep rich tones of “Amélie”, the harsh unforgiving palette of ”Apocalypse Now”, or the rouge hues throughout Spike Jones’ film “Her”. You’re doubtless aware of color’s impact on the viewer, even at a subconscious level. So how do we incorporate their art into our work? We’ve assembled a panel that will allow us to discuss the necessity and mechanics of coloring an image. Our very own Sigmund Reboquio and Alex Vo will start off with the exact same footage (selected to demonstrate real-world lighting scenarios), and grade it to their individual styles. If you’re up for the challenge, bring your own laptop and put those clips through your own grading workflow. Footage will be made available on-site.
With new cameras and their capability to shoot flat, there is work to be done before the art of grading can begin. That is where Jim Snow will demonstrate the application of Look Up Tables (LUT’s) and the use of LUT Buddy, by Red Giant Software in Premiere Pro.
Our program will kick off with the introduction and demonstration of the newest must-have camera, the Sony A7s. A few of our members have already put them through their paces and will talk about their experience with this camera.
August editing might be keeping you busy, but make some time to keep up with your networking and education. Please join us on Monday for another great BAPVA meeting.
