Advanced Color Design with the ICA

AbelCine has partnered with the International Colorist Academy (ICA) to offer this advanced color design workshop aimed at everyone involved in designing the look and style of a project. The workshop will begin with a look at color harmonies and balance, and then apply these ideas to color grading through practical examples and experiments.

The workshop will focus on the principal elements of an image that clients of commercials, television and feature films can all relate to: skin, sky, products, mood and time of day, as well as additional topics suggested by the attendees. The goal is to manage these elements effectively and efficiently, while maintaining the integrity of the project’s concepts and a color schema.

This workshop is an ideal follow up to intermediate workshops taught by the ICA, but is open to anyone with competent grading skills.

Each participant can approach the course with their own ideas and objectives, and everyone is encouraged to bring their own media to use in addition to the course media. There will be a full demo system with panels in the class, but participants are welcome to bring in their own laptop systems to work with. This class applies to all color grading systems.

Each student will receive a certificate of completion.

Computers are provided for each student.
