LUTs 101: Theory – Los Angeles

Overview

Many of the latest camera systems offer either Log or Raw recording modes that give us the most possible information out of the camera. These features are great at keeping the original camera ‘negative’ as clean as possible, but at the same time they can leave your image on set looking very flat and boring. This is where the use of Look Up Tables (LUT) comes in, which are offsets that allow you to manipulate your image and create a look without affecting the camera originals. This workshop is split into two sections, LUTs 101: Theory & LUTs 201: Practical Application.

LUTs 101: Theory will demonstrate the process for creating a LUT for cameras like the Alexa, Sony F5 & F55, and Varicam. Specific focus is types of LUTs, LUT combinations and layering, and tools used for OnSet LUT creation.


Color Managed Workflow for Film and TV Productions – Los Angeles

The Color Managed Workflow for Film and TV Productions workshop is designed to look at the process of color management in modern digital film production, from the capturing of motion pictures as digital images to the final delivery of digital master files.

LUTs 201: Practical Application – Los Angeles

This workshop is split into two sections, LUTs 101: Theory & LUTs 201: Practical Application.

LUTs 201: Practical Application further expands on the curriculum of LUTs 101: Theory. This class explores the creative side of LUT design as well as applying LUTs in different post production applications. Working with live camera sources, this class demonstrates creating looks from various cameras. These looks will then be applied in a variety of post editing and grading applications.
