Session One: Post-production for Cinematographers – From Camera to Display

What processes impact the image on its journey from camera to mastering display? Digital post-production is a complex process, similar to the chemical process of emulsion film.

In this session, Senior Colourist and FilmLight Colour Workflow Specialist Andy Minuth explains the impact of digital image acquisition and the important image processing steps involved in post-production. He shares a transparent view on spatial processes like demosaicing and sharpening, as well as colour management involving colour and rendering transforms.

The aim of this talk is to help increase your natural intuition of the image processing pipeline in post. It will help you to identify errors and find the best settings for your project.

Session Two: Natural Colours & Texture | A View on Colours & Texture in Painting

Part A: Natural Colours & Texture

How can we achieve cinematic images with preferred colour and contrast modulation in times of super-sharp, wide gamut cameras and displays?

In the first part of this session, FilmLight Image Engineer Daniele Siragusano focuses on the first principles of natural colours and texture including the fundamental differences between the real world and modern HDR wide gamut image reproduction. From there, a road map is outlined towards cinematic experience in digital cinema and television. He also presents new creative tools that help to bring back naturalism to digital images.

Part B: A View on Colours & Texture in Painting

How did the grand masters of painting use light, colour and texture in their extraordinary work?

In the second part of the session, cinematographer Rolf Coulanges (BVK) shows some results of how his extensive study of the grand masters’ painting has impacted his work today. With many beautiful examples, he demonstrates how colour and texture form an image.

From Photons captured by a Camera to Photons emitted by a Display

In this seminar, FilmLight's Daniele Siragusano provided a full and complete picture of how data acquired by a camera is recorded, manipulated, finally interpreted and prepared to be viewed by the audience. Several fundamental concepts were explained:

  • Camera profiling: the principles of camera encoding and operations.
  • A novel way to think about exposing a camera.
  • Different colour grading styles and their heritage.
  • Colour appearance modeling and preferred colour reproduction.
  • Base Grade: a photographic approach to colour grading.

Managing Colour in a Multi-Delivery Production

In this seminar, Daniele discussed future-proof colour management strategies optimised for multi-delivery (SDR and HDR). First, fundamental differences in display characteristics between HDR and SDR Displays were reviewed from a technical and creative standpoint. Based on those findings, the major HDR distribution standards were examined from a conceptual standpoint. Finally, a distribution agnostic post-production colour workflow, and an outlook on future work, were presented.
