ABOUT THIS MODULE

Today’s acquisition technology has opened up a virtually limitless array of tools to manipulate the image long after the movie is shot.  From making technical adjustments to ensure shots match each other to crafting a compelling color palette for the entire film, color grading has empowered every director to get the film to look they way he wants.
 
In this module you will learn the color grading process, how it differs amongst formats, the balance between technical and artistic grading, how to protect yourself from the “fix-it-in-post” mentality, and how to get the look you want.
 
Harness the power of color and use it to best tell your story in the color grading module.
