Colour grading is enhancing the raw image that was shot on film or digital media to present to an audience on different formats. It is the bridge between the camera and the screen. There is a technical translation aspect to it, as well as allowing for a creative side of the process. The cinematographer has a chance here to enhance the image for the audience to enjoy the intended vision of the film or program. Colour grading has replaced the ‘colour timing’ process that was previously done in a film laboratory.

The role of the colourist is to help enhance that image and to be the cinematographer’s ‘hands’ by understanding his vision and making sure the audience will see the program or film in the way the cinematographer intended it be viewed. The colourist has a responsibility to convey the cinematographer’s intent. Obviously we (colourists) give creative input and have the technical know-how to carry out this process.

Download free Baselight STUDENT from filmlight

At NAB2017, FilmLight will preview their latest product, Baselight STUDENT, a software-only macOS application that answers the call from a growing number of facilities for trained Baselight colourists and assistants.

Baselight STUDENT is intended as the perfect learning tool, either for those wanting to train to become a professional colourist, to work on short personal projects, or for experienced practitioners moving up to Baselight from other grading solutions. While the new application is free, interested parties must register and be eligible to become a part of the Baselight Learning Programme to obtain a licence.

“We’ve had growing requests from freelance colourists and creative artists for this product,” explained FilmLight founder and CEO, Steve Chapman. “But we don’t just want to hand out a free piece of software and walk away. We want to work with training institutions and the creatives to make sure that they have the right resources and support to achieve their goals.”

Baselight STUDENT is a fully functional version of FilmLight’s Baselight colour grading software – with GPU rendering – that runs on any supported Mac platform. This includes support for an optional control surface, like FilmLight’s Slate panel, and even SDI monitoring for a full grading suite experience.

The principle limitation is that the application is restricted to render out only h.264 movies or JPEG images. With no watermarking, this means that Baselight STUDENT can be used to create academic-year projects within the limitation of the delivery formats. Along with conform capability, colour space handling, format editing and the ability to render both image sequences and movie files, this also makes the application the ideal tool to learn how to start a career as a professional colourist assistant.

FilmLight will initially talk to participants to assess their individual needs and then provide them with a free licence for the appropriate length of time, along with practice material they can use to get up to speed. FilmLight will also develop regular video tutorials and live best-practice webinars for members of the Baselight Learning Programme.

“We’ve reached pretty far with our team of in-house trainers but it just isn’t physically possible for everyone to access face-to-face training with FilmLight product specialists,” added Chapman. “With the growing popularity of the BLG metadata workflow, and the forthcoming release 5.0 across our product line, this grading software provides a unique opportunity for everyone to get a handle on Baselight’s advanced colour tools as used by top-notch artists everywhere.”

FilmLight will demonstrate Baselight STUDENT at NAB2017 on booth #SL3828 (24-27 April, Las Vegas Convention Center). Interested parties can register for updates at http://www.filmlight.ltd.uk/baselightstudent.

Inspiring the world - Jill Bogdanowicz, Senior DI Colorist

JILL BOGDANOWICZ - Senior DI Colorist

Jill Bogdanowicz actually started her career as a colorist at an exceptionally early age. At the tender age of 18 she had already landed an internship in Kodak's telecine department in Rochester that lasted for two years. Highly educated, she attended the State University of New York at Geneseo as a fine arts major and (amazingly) a physics minor where she earned her BA degree.

Following that she attended art school in Italy at the University of Siena. She lives and loves art in her personal life through her hobbies painting with oils, water colors, and charcoal. And, of course, she has her own darkroom for black and white photography.

Bogdanowicz started her work as a digital colorist at Cinesite on the first full DI, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, for Joel and Ethan Coen and cinematographer Roger Deakins, ASC, BSC. She comes from a family of imaging experts — her father spent his career as a top-level scientist at Eastman Kodak’s Rochester, NY headquarters and her sister is also a successful digital colorist.

How to create professional Color Grading Environment?

SOLUTION

Colour of the wall - 18% GREY / SP50

Professional color grading rooms require careful attention in order to ensure colors are perceived accurately. SP-50 paint is carefully formulated to match modern color grading monitor performance and, therefore, optimize viewing conditions.

A typical setup will consist of painting the wall behind the monitors with SP-50. An ideal configuration will have all walls painted with calibrated paint. The ceiling can be non-reflective black or SP-50.

Why should you use it?

  • Achieve an accurate color grading environment
  • Calibrated monitors match from room to room
  • Clients value a room built around SP-50
  • Turns a normal room into a professional grading environment
  • A small investment with great results
  • Top facilities around the world build rooms this way
  • Increase the value of your services
  • Create a better working environment
     

Here are three options for building your room:

Good

  • Wall behind monitors is painted with SP-50
  • Ceiling is painted black or a really dark gray
  • Other walls are painted white
  • One SLS-01 light installed close to the ground and washing softly on the wall
  • No other light sources, internal or external (windows)

Better

  • Wall behind monitors is painted with SP-50
  • Walls to the left and right of the console are painted with SP-50
  • Back wall painted white
  • Ceiling is painted black or a really dark gray
  • Two SLS-01 lights installed approximately two meters apart, close to the ground and washing softly on the wall
  • No other light sources, internal or external (windows)

Best

  • All walls painted with SP-50
  • Ceiling is painted black
  • Two SLS-01 lights installed approximately two meters apart, close to the ground and washing softly on the wall
  • No other light sources, internal or external (windows)

World's best colorist 2016- Steven J. Scott

Matching Cameras - Before you begin shoot

When shooting with multiple cameras, how can footage be matched between them?

Whether we know it or not, properly matched capture from each of our cameras is not only the right thing to do, it is a professional expectation. When camera teams are hired to cover an event or shoot a corporate video and three cameras are to be used, there is an unspoken understanding that the footage from each device will match.

Even seemingly simple footage is actually quite complex. There is a blend of elements, from grain and noise, to exposure and white balance.

If it’s impossible to bring matching equipment, choosing all of the camera settings prior to the shoot and then monitoring and adjusting prior to shooting will make the difference.

The best bet is to try to make enough time to test and work with the cameras prior to a shoot starting to at least get them close. Usually the larger the budget, the more setup and testing time there will be, but even with no lead time, a basic knowledge of how to set up cameras is important.

Checklist – Frame settings

Choose the frame size and rate that the project is to be delivered in and set each of the cameras to exactly those settings.

Shutter Speed/Angle

Ensure the shutter speed, also refered to as shutter angle, of each of the cameras is set the same. Shutter speed has a huge impact on the appearance of finished footage. Action sequences can benefit from overly quick shutter speeds, but a good starting place is generally around double the framerate of the camera.

White Balance

Each camera is different, but there should be tools for white balance on board. Most have a number of presets, and the more professional models will allow for custom white balancing, where a white card is held in front of the camera and set as the white that is recognized by the camera.

The key is to set the cameras to a similar setting to ensure that they’re close. If they all offer custom white balancing, that is obviously the best option.

ISO

Start with each camera set to the same ISO level and adjust. Many cameras have a default ISO, but the environment, lens characteristics, sensor characteristics or other factors can determine whether the level needs adjusting to more closely match other cameras.

While some high-end cameras that shoot RAW footage can have exposure tweaked a bit in post production, setting ISO properly in-camera is essential.

Adjusting the camera’s ISO to be as low as possible while delivering a nice, balanced image is key.

It’s going to be very difficult to get cameras exactly identical from simply adjusting settings and comparing monitors, but these basics will help get the process started. It’s all about getting them as close as possible to minimize the work that will need doing in post-production.
