Past Workshop Descriptions

Colour Theory

Colour correction is an integral aspect of the post-production pipeline and is increasingly available to independent digital filmmakers through powerful yet affordable software such as DaVinci Resolve. With the boom of digital colour correction resulting from the digital era of filmmaking, colour theory is an integral facet of a colourist’s process to help guide a story forward. This workshop covers components of colour including: the colour wheel; primary, secondary, and tertiary colours; analogous vs. complementary colours as well as colour spaces and their role in colour correction. 

This workshop is recommended as a companion to the Introduction to Digital Colour Grading with DaVinci Resolve, Intermediate Colour Grading with DaVinci Resolve, Blackmagic Cinema Camera and URSA Mini Pro and RED Epic Camera workshops.​
