Introduction


Enterprise training program for Film and TV productions is looking at the process of colour management in modern digital film production. From capturing of motion pictures as digital images to the final delivery of digital master files.

New TV standards as REC 2020 and HDR10 are lifting the bar in terms of image quality, modern digital cameras are able to capture images of higher resolution and quality better than ever before, while screen manufacturers are delivering always improved devices on the market.

General consumer expectation of what a great looking image should look has shifted significantly in the last few years. This training teaches all the tools, technologies and processes, explaining how to work on-set and in post to achieve the best image quality.

The core of our training is based around Colour Managed Workflow. While in the traditional, linear production process, colour grading was left until the end of post-production process, a newly emerging approach is challenging this view. Colour management establishes and maintains the desired look for a production throughout the production process: from on-set monitoring, editorial and VFX to finishing and final mastering.

Our enterprise training was originally developed with British Film Institute and Skillset in order to support leading production companies in their transition to HDR.

Training is custom tailored towards client needs and is aimed at all members of production team: cinematographers, DITs, directors, producers, supervisors, editors and colourists. In fact, anyone involved in the production process will benefit from attending the course.

Class size is normally capped at 12 students.
