What you'll learn in this film production class:

AbelCine has partnered with the International Colorist Academy (ICA) to offer this advanced workshop for working colorists. In this practical, two-day workshop, participants will work with frequently requested grading styles and looks. The workshop will cover how to achieve these looks, as well as a discussion of the cultural meanings or concepts they impart to a project. The goal is to achieve new looks from old techniques.

The workshop begins with a presentation of standard looks from a historical perspective. It then quickly moves into practical examples and experiments. Each participant can approach the course with their own ideas and objectives, and everyone is encouraged to bring their own media to use in addition to the course media.

This workshop is an exciting meeting of like-minded colorists and an opportunity to practice and try new ideas without the pressure of a client in attendance. Taking advantage of this is a rare opportunity to sit together with other colorists and bounce challenges and experiences around.

Each student will receive a certificate of completion.Computers are provided for each student.

  • What makes a “Look” iconic
  • The difference between a “Look” and a “Style”
  • Cinematic uses of color and contrast
  • How to analyze and reproduce reference looks

  • How digital tools can imitate a chemical bleach bypass
  • When to use color washes and color casts
  • Different ways to handle day for night and time of day grades

  • How to have happy accidents!
Who should attend
This course is an ideal follow up to intermediate classes taught by the ICA and is open to any colorist who has completed such a class or who has at least one year’s experience.
