Welcome to ‘In the Colorist’s Studio’ – a ground-breaking, project-based learning experience featuring live, step-by-step grading sessions led by professional colorists. This is no ordinary training; you will follow along in real-time as the pros bring a project to life, using the very same media files that you have access to.
But it doesn’t stop there. You will be learning in a collaborative environment, a cohort of select, highly skilled colorists just like yourself. The course encourages interaction – ask questions, initiate discussions, share insights, and learn not just from the mentors but also from your peers.
Best of all, every moment of this training is recorded. Missed something? No problem. Want to revisit a complex step? It’s just a click away. Work on your project at your own pace, rewatch the sessions as needed, and when you’re ready, share your final piece with your fellow colorists.
