Look Academy is our only course dedicated purely to the art of color and not necessarily the technical aspects. We want you to develop your own distinct style and help you go one step further into the realm of color and its influence on the story and viewers’ emotions. So that you can give the project that magic touch that only masters of color grading can deliver.

About

Colour Grading is traditionally acquired by transferring skills from a Senior Colorist to their Assistant. Usually, the path to a professional colorist job would lead from a junior or assistant position at a post-production company. Depending on a person’s ability and sheer chance, one would gradually progress and grow into a Senior Colorist Position.
However, this cycle of new talent development has now become entirely obsolete. Post-Production companies have gradually stopped hiring junior staff, and this practice has now wholly ground to a halt.
Potentially this poses a severe issue for the entire industry. As the art and science of Color Grading are advancing faster than ever before, so grows the demand for skilled and experienced professionals. But if we do not have a clear path for skills development, the question is, how are we going to continue growth and meet up that demand.
Winter Look academy is the answer to that problem.
We help a new generation of colorists grow into professionals’ ranks by acquiring necessary skills in a new and alternative way.
