  1. Hi everyone, I'm writing a piece on the history of colour correction/grading through the ages and was wondering if any of you have been in the business long enough to have first hand experience of grading with film before it went digital? If any of you have any information about who to talk to or know of anywhere that still processes film (preferably in London), please let me know!
  2. Would someone please share tips on working with Magic Bullet Looks? I usually start with my primary color-correction—balancing my Luma scopes, RGB parade and vectorscope in Final Cut Pro X—but would like to grade in Magic Bullet Looks. Does it make sense to do my primary CC *at all* beforehand if I know I’m going to use Magic Bullet Looks for grading afterward? Some people say, when using MBL, you should wait to dial in your scopes as the last step. Thanks for your thoughts!
  3. Hello! I have just finished a final cut of my new movie and would to color grade it. I heard something about buying a specialised video card for precise video playback (in terms of color reproduction). I found Blackmagic Shuttle as a relatively cheap (200$) option but I am not sure if it will do the trick? Also, one of my colleagues who knows about grading more than myself told me that I should be connecting Blackmagic shuttle to the minitor via S-Video out, not DVI or HDMI as they are not able to reproduce the colours precisely. Do you guys have any suggestions in whether which connection type should I choose for the best color precision? My movie was shot on a Mark III, H.264 in Full HD. I will rent a JVC Broadcast monitor for my Color grading work.

  5. Hey guys! I'm 17 years old and started out as an amateur cinematographer about four years ago. I've been doing a few amateur shortfilms and other stuff so far, but never totally on my own. Last fall I got the ultimate opportunity to join a production/filmgroup as their new technical manager and cinematographer. The group consisted of four boys, who'd produced two feature-lenght films before and they took a pretty big risk with me, a girl who'd never worked this professional and with that much responsibility. Anyways, we shoot the movie last week and I used a Canon EOS 7D. While going trough the material we noticed a white spot near the center of the image. Examining the spot closer, I realized it must be a pixel error on one of the lenses I used. It consists of four pixels (white and three gray tones) and to my misfortune it's clearly visible on most of the footage. Now, I'm familar with all Adobe programs and Cinema 4D and my question would be: Has anyone got some advice how I could cover, erase or fade the spot easily? I'd be so happy about any help. It would really be lifesaving! Bye for now and thanks in advance! Desirée
