Dailies Colorist

This course, we recommend to anyone looking to work in a professional post-production environment for film and tv productions. For many, this job was the entry position before becoming final Colorist and later growing into the ranks of senior Colorist.

However, this is by no means a trivial task. As you will see in this class, many parts of it require a great amount of attention to detail, precision, consistency, and more than anything else great communication skills. 

A good dailies colorist can save a production a vast amount of time and money during final grade as many crucial things that are related to the look, and technical aspects of an image can be accomplished during Dailies grade

Students Reviews

I was inspired and energized after taking the Bespoke Color Training with Dado Valentic. His knowledge and passion for color science is evident and made it easy to grasp the material having limited knowledge. I strongly recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn more about the art and science behind Color.

The 2 day class you just thought was informative and inspiring. Your Mentor was right when he said that you should teach. You are a gifted teacher as well as an amazing colorist. Thank you! I’m excited to start using the tools you’ve given us at CBS and start to elevate our Promos. Again, much appreciation for the training!!

I wanted to take the opportunity to say what a pleasure it was to meet all of you. The course itself was absolutely satisfying but, as Dado predicted, it was an added bonus to spend a couple of days with such a lovely bunch of talented people.
