The Best Inter Interview Series for Colorists
Other podcasts touch on the field of color correction and grading occasionally, but the Tao of Color does it justice.
The Tao of Color Interview Series is the only game in town right now for dedicated interviews of Color Grading professionals.
That's not to say that Patrick slacks in this highly informative and entertaining series. He asks professional colorists the questions we want to know, and through that offers great insight into this, often times, mysterious field.
I highly recommend this series to anyone interested in color grading, film finishing, color grading tools and just knowing how the movies, and television, you see are brought to a point of such depth and beauty.
Loved the interview. Can't wait for parts 2 and 3.
Must listen for all in post-production
This podcast is a must listen for colorists especially but all who work in post-production will gain some great knowledge out of the discussion. They are very informed and thoughtful. Keep up the good work.
