How Post-Production Makes or Breaks a Film, Part 2: Secret World of Colorists

How do you become a colorist, and how do you work with one? Delve into this conversation to find out.

If you've seen a few independent films that have come out of the festival circuit from the past year or two, odds are you've seen the work of Sam Daley, Nat Jencks, or Seth Ricart. They are three talented colorists who have graded films like The Florida Project, City of Ghosts, and Beach Rats. They sat down with No Film School at this past Sundance Film Festival where they premiered their color work on some of the edgiest, loveliest, and grittiest films we've seen this year! How do they work? What is the real life of an indie film colorist? How can you get your film to look like that? Listen to this conversation to find out!
