EDITOR + COLOR GRADINGI'm an editor (not a colorist). However, this has to be one of my best additional skills. I have finished a lot of projects as an online editor and as a colorist. I understand the process and the technical-creative aspects of it.
COLOR GRADING + ONLINE KNOWLEDGE
Thinking about color on the offline edit will make the grading more meaningful. On the other hand, knowing about the online process, gives me a lot of creative possibilities on the edit suite… while also managing footage effectively on the offline.
I have also a background as online editor, which is useful knowledge to keep an eye on the technical while assisting or editing, which will translate on better quality, technical consistency, speed and better collaboration with people on post (including sound people, colorists, online editors and vfx people).
