Color is a powerful signal in video; it can subtly project emotion, mood, time of day, and location. Learn to manipulate these visual elements in a variety of shots, from interior spaces to outside landscapes, with color grading. Filmmaker, colorist, and experienced editor Simon Walker shows how to simulate a light source and different types of light, and choose an evocative color for your footage to tell the story of a particular location. Plus, learn techniques to change the time of day, the type of room, and the overall mood of a location.
Simon works with Adobe Premiere Pro and the Magic Bullet Colorista II and Looks plugins, but these lessons can be applied to any color correction workflow.
It's great to be able to effect and change scenes in post production with color correction adjustments. But it's useful to remember just a few short details about how light works. Light appears at different strengths at different times of the day. And our eyes see different colors under bright and low light conditions. So, replicating real world or natural colors, helps the viewer involve themselves with the story. We can simulate natural light in artificial lighting sources, and we can do this in post production to match scenes together, or make them look as though they were filmed at different times. But we can also stylize and emphasize certain moods and simulate filmic processes.
Which can in turn suggest a change in location, or specially in this case a change in the time of day.
