Course Overview

This course is a comprehensive study of color management techniques for digital motion picture
productions. High impact techniques, taught in this course, have the potential to elevate image quality, accelerate post-production and enable productions to deliver simultaneously to SDR and HDR display devices. Participants will learn how to get the most out of modern digital cameras and be able to take full control over the image. You will learn how to deploy various color management techniques to a whole spectrum of productions, from live transmissions to high-end feature film shows. As a bonus module, we focus on cinematographers and how they can best manage color-managed workflow and set the right level of expectation from their DITs, Dailies Colorist, Supervising Colorist, and Color Scientist.
By the end of this course, participants will have full knowledge and techniques, and gain practical experience of how to control their look using digital tools available today.
Participants should have some experience with production and digital image processing.
