  2. Walter Voplato - The Green Book, Dunkirk, Star Wars - The Last Jedi & Chris Clark - Color Scientist Netflix We are pleased to announce that for LA Colorist Meetup we are going to be honored to welcome two specials guests: Chris Clark a Netflix chief color scientist, a person who is the most responsible for industry-wide adoption of HDR and color managed workflow. And the fastest rising star of the color hall of fame - a multi-talented Walter Volpatto, who after having graded Star Wars has delivered an incredible art-house look for ‘The Green Book’ an Oscar winner for the best movie in 2019. Chris Clark - a former Sony Pictures and Deluxe Color Scientist was at the helm of Netflix transformation to HDR and color management that has enabled 120 million people around the world to enjoy probably the best-looking TV images ever. It is no doubt that Netflix has pushed the bar high when it comes to image quality but what are they planning for the future… Walter Volpatto - the man behind the color of ‘The Last Jedi’ and ‘Dunkirk’ needs no introduction. This will be a great opportunity to get to know Walter up close and personal. Walter’s guest appearance and talk on his work on movie ‘Green Book’ is promising to be the most remembered guest appearance at the Colorist Meetup.

  3. NY Colorist Meetup with DP Igor Martinovic ( House of Cards, The Night Of..) & Dario Bigi CSI IGOR MARTINOVIC - DOP ( House of Cards, The Night Of ) The recent fiasco of a very dark episode of 'Game of Thrones' has made us reach to DOP Igor Martinovic a master of dark imagery. He is a DP behind the darkest HBO series The Night Of and many other shows where he was able to portray night perfectly. There is a lot of mystery involved in this process and we can't wait to hear Igor's approach. DARIO BIGI - CSI Dario is a colorist that already today is living the future. Two years ago we have predicted that color grading is moving in direction of remote work and Dario has done exactly that. He has managed to successfully move from working in edit bays to working in his Manhattan loft with top clients completely remotely. We will be chatting to Dario to hear his story, how he has made this transition and in and outs of the remote workflow.

  5. I have been doing webinars for a small group of around 350 pro colorists from around the world as a way to expand on the classes I teach. A few weeks ago I was test driving one of the first Panasonic GZ2000 HDR OLED screens and wanted it to be calibrated and matched to my reference monitor Sony BVM X300. Luckily, we had Marcel Gonska from Portrait Displays / Calman do the calibration and it was such a pleasure to watch him perfectly match these two monitors in the shortest possible time. I could not resist but record what he was doing and also invite him to be our guest in our webinar. We will learn not only about calibration but also about interesting laws of perception and how to work around them to make two screens match. You can register for the webinar by following this link TUESDAY 12 MARCH 11am PST | 2PM EST | 7PM GMT | 8PM CET
