On-set Color Correction Tools
One of the tools filmmakers use to achieve their vision is color correction. Color correction can be an important tool that not only makes images visually pleasing but also can change them to affect the mood and message of a film. With the expanding world of digital workflows, filmmakers are constantly trying to find new ways to better develop their vision and to do it in a more effective manor. This project will explore the aesthetic and technical sides of color correction. Two student projects will be discussed in detail including insight on workflow, color decisions, and the motivation behind those decisions. The world of on-set color correction will also be explored to determine a workflow for the School of Film and Animation at RIT and to determine its usefulness in an on-set environment.
