About The Seminar

“The Tao of Color Grading Presentation” is a 1 – 2 hour presentation that teaches you to:
  • Understand a simple physical truth about the human vision system – that your eyes and brain conspire to work against your ability to really ‘see’ the images you are capturing and creating.
  • Become enlightened about how to combat the aggressive manner in which our eyes lie to us.
  • Learn how the underlying methods used to digitally compress and process video can be leveraged to your advantage in the color grading process.
  • Walk away with a simple workflow which you can immediately employ for quick, efficient grading.
  • Learn how to use powerful image evaluation tools that are already built into the software you’re using.
  • Discover the one color correction filter you probably never use – but should, and is an essential tool in Patrick’s bag of tricks.
