In this exclusive session, Maxine will share the technical and creative aspects of the colour development on these three projects, working with acclaimed cinematographers, directors and VFX teams. She will show how Baselight X helped her achieve these three distinctive looks.

Sylvain Canaux

A native Parisian, Sylvain Canaux started his career at post house St Louis where he quickly gained recognition for his work on beauty grading for high end commercials and photographers, such as Chanel , Yves St Laurent & Dior.

Using Baselight v5, Sylvain will illustrate the challenges of moving between colour spaces and show how these challenges can be met through a combination of colour science and artistic skills.

Mike Nuget
Freelance Colourist/Editor, New York City


Initially a member of the Technicolor-PostWorks team, Mike Nuget recently decided to branch out on his own, and he has been applying his skills in colour grading, editorial finishing, and visual effects to film and television projects as well as documentaries.

At IBC, Mike will share his recent experiences live using the new Baselight 5 for Avid tools, with a focus on Base Grade, Texture Equaliser, Boost Contrast, and other new features.

Daniele Siragusano
Image Engineer, FilmLight, Munich


Daniele Siragusano utilises his experience and workflow expertise as an Image Engineer at FilmLight, helping existing and potential customers achieve the best productivity and creativity in their own unique setups.

A key speaker at many of the masterclasses that have formed the FilmLight global colour tour, here Daniele will focus more on the first principles of natural colours and texture including the fundamental differences between the real world and modern HDR wide gamut image reproduction. This technical session gets deeper into the management of colour spaces and completes a day where colourists have shared their craft drawing on real experience.
