The International Colorist Academy (ICA) was founded by colorists Kevin Shaw and Warren Eagles who have over 50 years of grading experience between them. They can also boast over 30 years of training and demo experience. Kevin and Warren work with freelance colorists to pool their valuable experience in grading features, commercials, DI, music, and drama projects to create hands-on colorist training courses.
ICA courses are typically small and personal, and all the instructors have years of experience to share. Books and videos are helpful resources but they can never replace first hand knowledge and someone to answer your questions. Classes are held regularly in Los Angeles, New York, London, Sydney, Singapore, and other major cities around the world. We also conduct customized classes on-site for post facilities, manufacturers, and industry organizations.
The ICA provides a range of courses geared towards colorists and post-production facilities. All courses are delivered by independent colorists located around the world and range from basic color theory, digital intermediate, and film workflows, to telecine and lab grading, client interaction, and looks and styles.
ICA courses cover a broad range of different manufacturers’ color grading systems and we offer many courses that are not system specific.
