Charles Poynton: Colour Science for Digital Cinematography
Short introduction to the topic at cineCongress, MOC, So. Sept. 23rd 4 pm – 5 pm
1 day workshop at HFF Munich, Tue Sep 25th 2018, 9.30 am - 5 pm, (275,-€) Registration form
When cinema was acquired, graded, and exhibited on photographic film, a very small number of film manufacturers set the colour science. “System design” was the exclusive domain of the film manufacturers.
Cinematographers plan that the images launched into the production/post/grading/ mastering pipeline best serve the story told. The cinematographer should be the primary high-level system designer. But a rather new knowledge base is required: the colour science of digital cinematography. In this 1 day workshop, Charles Poynton will introduce the fundamentals of colour science as applied to modern digital cinema cameras and production/post/DI processes. More information
