Join Eduardo Angel for an in-depth discussion in this video Monitoring calibration, part of Video Post Production for Low-Budget Films.
- If you're coming from a photography background,…you might notice a difference between…how some filmmakers approach color.…This is not a super-technical course;…I don't want to get too technical here,…but let's just say that photographers…typically aim for accuracy,…while filmmakers should be aiming for consistency.…Even though monitor technology…is getting more sophisticated every single day,…the color discrepancies between different devices…is still a very significant issue.…For example, we might be using a fairly accurate…external monitor recorder on location.…
While dumping the footage on our laptop,…things might look close,…not exactly the same, but close.…Then we come here to the studio…and start coding our project on a calibrated monitor.…So far, so good.…The problem really starts when our client,…who's watching dailies or rough cuts on a cell phone…in an office completely flooded with flourescent lights,…complains that the skin tones are too green.…As a filmmaker, it is always painful for me…to watch a grade movie on an airplane's tiny screen.…
