Taught by Vancouver-based colorist Lorne Miess, Digital Colour Theory introduces you to the fundamentals of light and colour when applied to film and television industries. Understanding how to make your images look as photorealistic as possible is the premise for this course. Standard theories of additive and subtractive colour models will be discussed with examples from various media and software packages such as Final Cut Pro and Photoshop.

Learn what colour enhancement is all about and why you would use it. You'll learn that using different colour correction packages are made easier when you understand the colour theory behind what you want to achieve. This class will cover film and video theory, in particular how colour is used creatively as well as technically. This is a great companion course at fxphd to use with courses on the inner workings of Davinci and Lustre. Have some fun with light and colour, you'll be amazed when you see what you can achieve.
