Hello all, I am in my final year of studying film production and I am currently doing research about cinematography and color grading. I am trying to find out more about the collaboration/ workflow between the DP and the Colorist and the issues regarding the authority over the look. I am also looking into whether new, aspiring cinematographers should be their own colorists. I was wondering if you could please share your opinions about this from your experiences so far. As a Cinematographer, how were your collaborations with Colorists ? (and vice-versa). What can DPs/Colorists do to ensure they can work together successfully? If you are working both as a Cinematographer and a Colorist, why did you choose to have both roles and how difficult was the transition from cinematography to color grading? Your help would be much appreciated!
