In the first episode Cullen talks with director David Fincher’s favorite colorist Eric Weidt about the art and craft of color grading.

Eric has an incredible list of credits that includes Mank, Mindhunter and House of Cards. His works on these projects extends far beyond traditional tasks of color grading, incorporating complex look modeling and incredible detailed adjustments on virtually every frame.

The techniques and insights he shares in this episode are unique, and includes topics such as how to sculpt the viewers experience with textural and spatial tools, the lens treatment techniques used on Mindhunter, the process behind and the swan curve used on the day-for-night shots on Mank, advanced grain work and so much more.

That's some awesome lineup of interviews, thank's Cullen and Lowepost for these. Thoroughly enjoyed Erik's interview, specially the info of exr's having the same dynamic range of r3d's, i'm in the vfx industry and some time we tend to match the live action plates in Nuke, and there is never a loss of quality on the exr's.

Thanks a lot to Lowepost, and Cullen, as the host for bringing this excellent collective of colorists interviews in this series. This is a very welcome series in a time when the online digital democratization allows us to take advance of education for colorists and aspirant colorists as myself. This is especially true when seeing it as an extension of the vast online classes available today, aiming to teach the technical aspect of color grading and pushing buttons,
which by the way, are also necessary as a tool set for the colorists, but by itself can become a guarentee to failure.

As part of the format of this  series, it would be helpful to have a description of each interviewee at the top of the page as the first interviews had.
