In this video I talk with cinematographer and colorist Cody Mathis about the process of post production and specifically color grading. We covered LUTS, what formats to exports, the most common color grading softwares and what to do when a film is completed.
We cover a few topics that are very important in film production, but that don’t get enough attention.
Color grading is the process of improving the appearance of an image for presentation in different environments on different devices. Various attributes of an image such as contrast, color, saturation, detail, black level, and white point may be enhanced whether for motion pictures, videos, or still images.
More info from Studio Binder:
Color correction refers to adjusting white and black levels, exposure, contrast, and white balance to give you an image with accurate, unprocessed-seeming colors. The point of color correction is to ensure that subsequent color adjustments have more precision, and don’t yield unintended results
Cinematography (from ancient greek κίνημα, kìnema “movement” and γράφειν, gràphein “to write”) is the science or art of motion-picture photography and filming either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as film stock.
Cinematographers use a lens to focus reflected light from objects into a real image that is transferred to some image sensor or light-sensitive material inside a movie camera. These exposures are created sequentially and preserved for later processing and viewing as a motion picture. Capturing images with an electronic image sensor produces an electrical charge for each pixel in the image, which is electronically processed and stored in a video file for subsequent processing or display. Images captured with photographic emulsion result in a series of invisible latent images on the film stock, which are chemically “developed” into a visible image. The images on the film stock are projected for viewing the motion picture.
Cinematography finds uses in many fields of science and business as well as for entertainment purposes and mass communication.
