Colour management establishes and maintains the desired look for a production throughout the production process: from on-set monitoring, editorial and VFX to finishing and final mastering. Without colour management, digital production and post production can become a costly nightmare. If ungoverned, the colour of the same image seen by different departments – the production unit, editorial, VFX, grading – will be inconsistent, leading to a huge waste of resources. The appliance of colour science avoids this and gets everyone on the same page.

Colour Management for Film and TV Productions training has been designed to run as a three module training session. The class mixes the theoretical side of colour management with practical real world training on workflows, approaches and techniques as well as creative look development.
