Students will learn how to bring a movie or sequence to life. They will review movie sequences and discuss how the color and mode has enhanced the film. They will also learn how to create the traditional “looks” from movies, TV commercials, and music videos, as well as how to matching those looks, not only shot to shot, but also to an entire scene.
- TVC beauty type commercial shot on the BMCC. Great for doing very soft/mist type looks.
- A war sequence shot on Sony F3. Fantastic for a ‘Saving Private Ryan’
- Bleach Bypass grade, a hot jungle look, or the classic Day for Night feel.
- “House of Cards” reconstruction, based on the original scene shot on Arri Alexa. This includes dialogue and reenacts of the original scene from the classic Netflix series.
- We will address the different challenges presented by each sequence.
- Students then get the chance to do the same in a timed situation, like a real session but with the instructor playing the client’s role.
- Students are also encouraged to bring their own footage to work on and share with the class.
“I really enjoyed the course. This is an excellent class for anyone seeking to learn interesting and creative ways to grade the different type of digital material. The course structure makes it very enjoyable, easy to understand and gives you the necessary knowledge to stand out in this competitive industry. Warren inspires and motivates you to be a better colorist.”
