Episode 3: From the Mailbag
It’s been a busy summer and we’re glad that the cooler temps of fall are (hopefully) around the corner – especially since we as colorists enjoy the freezing temps of the grading suite! Remember, if you have questions that you’d like to get an opinion on please use the contact form. Your questions can be aesthetic, technical or even client related. We’d love to hear from you!
In this episode, we have three different segments:
First up, we’re super excited that we’ve launched a new training series called Insights Training! Our first title in the series is on Adobe SpeedGrade CC. Clocking in at nearly 4.5 hours and authored by our own Patrick Inhofer, this title is one of the best ways to quickly get up to speed (pun intended) with SpeedGrade CC. Pat, Robbie and Dan discuss what the title is all about, who it’s for and what you can expect from purchasing the title.
Next, we got a great question about working with a DP (or DOP depending on where you’re from!) in a supervised session. We’ll discuss how to work with a DP and help them achieve their creative vision, how to manage a DP when accompanied with other team members like producers and directors and different strategies for when a DP doesn’t want to change anything about a shot or wants to go off the deep end.
Finally, we’ll wrap up with a question we got about how to make good monitoring decisions and what to buy when you’re trying to go after a new type of client that is expecting a certain type of monitoring.
