For my 13th season of fxphd training I wanted to do something different. Lots of people are learning to color grade using many different ways: in the classroom, books, film school, YouTube, and more. This is OK, but when you start offering your services as a colorist and begin working with clients it becomes a lot more serious.
Insider Techniques for the Pro Colorist looks at how to approach a color session, where you start the grade and what an experienced client expects from you. We’ll also fix bad camera problems causing shots in the sequence to not match as well as use twelve Resolve OFX Plugins to fix problems and add creativity. This course has many tips on how to make your way up the grading ladder including things such as how you should set up your room, monitor, control surface, and even insights on whether it is ok to work for free.
This course is primarily centered around a 60 second segment introducing a marketing video for a paint shop. Filmed with three different cameras (GoPro, A7iii, and a 4k Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera), the footage presents many challenges: flicker, wrong color temperature, bad framing, changes in exposure, noise and a fussy host/vfx artist and CEO who is paying for the grade. The course comes with all the footage — over 10GB! — so you can follow along as a tackle the problems.
