Learn how to create digital imagery that is indistinguishable from film in this workshop webinar with colorist Jerome Thelia, co-founder of Merge Group (NY). Thelia's process is a solid choice, not only for advanced colorists, but also for directors and DPs who long for a film look without shooting film and seek alternatives to digital filters that mimic grain but never produce a final look with the richness and organic nature of film.

What You'll Learn…
Thelia will detail how he achieves high-end results with a film intermediate process in which motion picture is acquired digitally, transferred to negative stock, then scanned back for a digital finish. He'll discuss and demonstrate the method he used for Shawn Christensen's CURFEW (January 2012), which was shot in RED MX, digitally graded in ASSIMILATE’s SCRATCH, and recorded out to film stock to achieve the best combination of grain structure and colorimetry. He will include the use of log scans, extensive use of LUTs, anamorphic resizing, histogram, split screens for color matching/comparison, and how SCRATCH’S real-time data workflow simplifies this complex process.
Jerome Thelia draws on 20 years of post-production and production experience. His work includes commercials, music videos, TV series, feature films, documentaries, and the distance learning projects that introduced him to photographer David McLain. David and Jerome have been working together since 1999. Jerome's focus has consistently been at the intersection of art and technology, allowing him to combine his interests in science, music, and photography into a finely-tuned visual effects artist, colorist, and director.
