Color Correcting: The Key to Visual Engagement
Grant Bochantin

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.

Grant Bochantin is currently Post Production Supervisor on DC's Legends of Tomorrow.  He has worked for Warner Brothers, Disney and ABC Family.  He is an STN alumnus and valued member of the convention team.

REGISTER FOR THESE WORKSHOPS WITH YOUR CONVENTION REGISTRATION.
