In this short program, you will learn how to correct and make a more realistic view of your film. In this advanced course, you will work with Apple colour correction system plus Adobe after effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, FinalCut and even photoshop.
Colour correction by using colour gels, or filters, is a process used in stage lighting, photography, television, cinematography and other disciplines, the intention of which is to alter the overall colour of the light; typically the light colour is measured on a scale known as colour temperature, as well as along a green magenta axis orthogonal to the colour temperature axis.
Without colour correction gels, a scene may have a mix of various colours. Applying colour correction gels in front of light sources can alter the colour of the various light sources to match. Mixed lighting can produce an undesirable aesthetic when displayed on a television or in a theatre.
Conversely, gels may also be used to make a scene appear more natural by simulating the mix of colour temperatures that occur naturally. This application is useful, especially where motivated lighting (lending the impression that it is diegetic ) is the goal. Colour gels may also be used to tint lights for artistic effect.
