Your True North is your core of values, preferences, beliefs and boundaries.
As storytellers, we are developing these core values and sharing them visually with the world.
Every piece we produce has evidence of our True North. In the Pacific Northwest Washington,
we will discover our True North and apply it to our work as visual storytellers.

Color Correcting: The Key to Visual Engagement
Color is important for visual engagement of your video. We don't always get the look we want out of the camera but it can be corrected in post by controlling the density, hue of the color and saturation of a shot. This is a great skill to boost your edit expertise and make you a valuable job candidate.
