Demystifying Post Production Color From Set To Post and back! (Part 3 of 4)

Come along every Monday in This summer, in which the Maxon Color Team covers a variety of grading techniques, including how you can create a consistent look that honors the vision from the director and cinematographer, an operating session demonstrating how LUTs may be used in camera to permit filmmakers to determine their creative vision on set, having a publish-production follow-along grading session, including how to setup an ACES workflow in DaVinci Resolve.

We’ll finish off the month having a creative analysis of film effects, with special guest Stu Maschwitz (Director, Publish-Production Supervisor & Chief Creative Officer at Maxon), with practical tips and just how the special moment Bullet Film tools were particularly made to create accurate filmic treatments.

We’ll be supplying footage, project files, LUTS, presets, node recipes and PDF reference documents, in addition to footage to check out. Techniques proven within the session may be used in multiple NLEs and host applications including Resolve, Premiere Pro, Consequences, Enthusiastic Media Composer, and Final Cut Pro.
