Color correction is an essential component in digital cinema and greatly impacts the way the viewer experiences a film. In this intensive three-day workshop, students will learn how to put theories, concepts and trends of color into practice while learning techniques and principles that can be applied to any digital film project. Using examples from leading painters, photographers and filmmakers, this course discusses color in terms of theory, psychology, characteristics, mood, perceptions and deceptions. Students will learn to use industry standard color correction tools and put concepts into practice by exercising techniques including color calibration, use of video scopes, adjusting individual shots, correcting white balance, contrast, over and under exposed footage. This course is designed for any student interested in digital cinema and learning color correction essentials that will enhance the final look of a film.

This course is open to MA in Media Studies, MS and graduate certificate in Media Management, and Documentary Studies Certificate students only. All other graduate students may request permission three (3) weeks before the start of the course by emailing mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu.
