During the early part of 2017 I was invited to present at the Indie-Lincs International Film Festival in Lincoln. I was their to share my practice-based knowledge and workflows for effective and accessible colour management and colour grading for Film Production.
I had was given the opportunity to share a number of my working practices and the knowledge I have gained from my scholarly practice(s) to a large cohort of students, academics and filmmakers from around the world.
Much of my talk was sharing some hopefully useful practice-based knowledge that I have developed working as a Colourist, DIT and VFX artist on a number of low/no budget independent film projects.
I was kindly given permission from both the production teams for both 'Natalie' and 'The Last Viking' to share behind the scenes breakdowns of my practices and processes for creating a Filmic Looking image from digital acquisition formats and the realistic and pragmatic approaches to colour management for said films. I also wanted to share my entirely free workflow for colour grading and management; negating the need for expensive plug-ins, software and technology.
I would like to thank all of those involved in the IW21 event for a very welcoming and exciting opportunity to share my scholarly and professional practice.
