FilmLight is taking intensive and specialist masterclasses on a world tour to help colourists, DoPs and the wider production and post industry understand the opportunities and challenges that HDR and new delivery formats bring.
The London masterclass will take place next week on the 15th May.
In the one-day masterclass sessions, which are free for registered participants, a member of the FilmLight team will guide the group through some key factors that are changing production and finishing today. Attendees will look at the technical aspects of working in colour-managed workflows, and have the chance to discuss best practices for real-world projects.
Topics include setting up the pipeline for projects involving multiple camera origination and mastering camera matching, through to the large number of deliverables expected today. This will include the elements of HDR, its display and its distribution. Drawing on experiences from recently released movies and TV projects, the masterclasses will look at questions of moving between colour spaces and show the latest colour science and grading tools in action.
Further dates have been set for Mumbai (16th May), Hollywood (4th June) and Seoul (7th June), with more to be added.
FilmLight experts guiding the masterclasses will include Daniel Siragusano in Seoul and London (pictured), Andy Minuth in Mumbai and Peter Postma in Hollywood.
“HDR has just multiplied the number of deliverables producers demand from a movie today,” said Siragusano. “Making sure they consistently achieve the vision of the director and DoP is a challenge. FilmLight has transformed its grading tools to give colourists the power to grade in one colour space and be confident that it is portable across all deliverables. These masterclasses are a chance for practitioners to get into the real details, to understand the practical challenges of HDR, and to familiarise themselves with practical workflows.”
On the completion of the masterclass, all attendees will be given access to the FilmLight online educational resources as well as a 90-day license for Baselight STUDENT.
