  1. Colorist Meetup is going live this Thursday, June 25 at 2pm PST in conversation with Andrea Chlebak. Join us by signing up at www.colour.training/andrea
  2. The power of Ai & Picture Post Production register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/100096362916 The business of Picture Post Production was since its start directly linked to the technology involved in the process. Sometimes they are so intertwined that it is impossible to separate them. From the early days of photo-chemical film processing to Digital Intermediate, from Film Cutting to Avid Editing, from optical effects to ray tracing. We can say without a doubt that each new technology brought a change and has made a shift within the industry. Ultimately, each new technology has made the impossible possible. One of those technologies that have brought an incredible amount of excitement and promise for a great new wave of change was Ai. And we don't need a crystal ball to recognize that incredible advances in Ai, machine learning, deep learning, computer vision have opened doors for new ways of working. This Colorist Meetup will try to answer one burning question at this moment. How far are we with the development of Ai tools for the post-production, and are they ready and accessible to be used in real-world productions toady? Our special guest for the evening will be Alex Arce - product specialist from Autodesk who will be showing us what new Flame has got to offer and how far have they been able to push Ai tools. And Flame tools are considered to be the industry best! Alex is an industry veteran who founded renowned broadcast design and animation firm Arce+Kwan. Later in 2012 has launched Dtouch color department that was responsible for high-end fashion projects led by some of the world's greatest artists and photographers, including Inez & Vinoodh, Steven Meisel, and Tim Richardson. At Autodesk, he collaborated with the development team to consolidate his years of developing his procedural retouching techniques into the highly regarded A2Beauty tool shipped with Flame. We are looking forward to having Alex as a guest at our meetup. Please note that this is going to be our first Virtual Meetup. Originally we have been running Colorist Meetups in Los Angeles and New York, and now we are taking it to live on Youtube. ABOUT COLORIST MEETUP Our mission is to bring together Colorists, DITs, Workflow Supervisors, Cinematographers and anyone working with Color and Digital Image manipulation for Motion Pictures. We meet to discuss the art and science of color grading. We learn about the latest developments in software and hardware and meet manufacturers, ask questions and give feedback. We get access to exclusive previews of upcoming features, play, touch and look at the latest tools. During TNT (Tips'n'Tricks) sessions we share our knowledge and experience and see presentations from leading industry names on subjects of Color Grading, Color Science, ACES, HDR, Dolby Vision and future of digital image manipulation. Colorist Meetup is a unique opportunity to socialize and meet other colorists, directors and producers looking for colorists. We bring together the biggest names in Color Grading for Film as well as people starting up in a friendly and supportive environment. Colorist Meetup is a fertile ground for all interested in advancing their career in the process of life long learning.
  3. Colour.Training is launching a new training class 'Baselight for Avid' aimed at all colorists and finishers who want to learn how to use Baselight or who face in their jobs the following dilemma. There is a vast amount of color grading jobs out there that are cut on Avid, and due to their nature and turnaround times, it becomes complicated and almost impossible to round trip to a full blow color grading system. This is especially the case with reality TV series or docu TV series that need a proper finish, where more frequently Avid Symphony tools can not offer all required functionality. The answer is Baselight for Avid. This incredible plugin features a full-blown Baselight color grading system functionality in the form of a plugin. At the same time, it is a great way to get started with Baselight for any colorist considering learning this great grading system. In this webinar, we are going to introduce you to our instructor Mike Nuget. A leading New York colorist and former Technicolor employee with a wast knowledge and experience of this plugin and Avid workflow. You have probably seen him on NAB and IBC demoing for both Baselight and Avid, and his training and demo videos serve today as a reference for this great application. We are thrilled to have been able to take Mike away from his busy schedule and bring him into our classroom and deliver the best training for Baselight for Avid possible. Mike will take us through the contents of this 2-day masterclass, and you will be able to get a familiar first hand with the workflow mentioned above and ask him all relevant questions. Looking forward to seeing you all on Friday 13th 11:00 Los Angeles | 14:00 New York | 19:00 London | 20:00 Berlin To register click here. https://www.colour.training/baselight-for-avid

  7. 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.

  8. 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. Frame.io Launched at NAB this April, Frame.io, the world's leading video review and collaboration platform is now natively integrated into DaVinci Resolve 16 Studio—no installation necessary. Now, you can access your entire Frame.io workspace in DaVinci Resolve's Media Storage, collaborate with others from within your timeline, and quickly export entire timelines or just sections out of DaVinci Resolve with ease.

  10. 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 https://events.genndi.com/register/818182175026329242/d2369ec675 TUESDAY 12 MARCH 11am PST | 2PM EST | 7PM GMT | 8PM CET
