About

Now that every production is demanding color-managed workflow, it became a standard practice that at the start of the show, the colorist would develop a look in the form of a showlut. If you are interested in learning how this process works and how to create sophisticated looks for film, tv or high-end commercial productions, then this course is for you. You will know where to start the design, how to present it, deliver it, and make sure that the showlut will perform in various shooting scenarios and deliver aesthetically and technically. Dado’s experience of look design spans more than a decade. This seminar will cover practical and straightforward steps, including the actual practical look design of three different ShowLUTs inspired by movies.
