Mikon- Thanks for your insight. Yes, I can see that there may be some confusion in hindsight. Originally I had considered putting "original" and "graded" on the clips but thought it was too distracting. The wipes were done in different directions to make it more interesting to watch. Believe it or not, there are now people who have a hard time even watching a one minute video.

Hello Craig,

Nice work. My only comment is a technical one pertaining to the reel. I found that some of your wipes when not going left to right sort of threw me off and it took me a second to realize which side was corrected and which wasn't. I know this is minor, but I would hate for something like that to distract a potential client from focusing on your work.

Hey Alf- I realize that my answer was only "half" helpful. There are times when you need to do the job yourself.

So, let me give you some resources that you can use to get up to speed on color correction. The one I recommend that you start with is Lynda.com and the Color 1.5 tutorial by Robbie Carman. Really well done, but it is 99% about the mechanics of color grading theory and using color. The other reference I would consider is "The Art and Technique of Digital Color Correction" by Steve Hullfish. It's very good about talking about the art of color correction, and gives you footage to work with.

Please feel free to contact me offline if you have any questions. My contact info is at http://www.ubu-roi.com

Thanks, Alf. It takes a lot of practice to be able to see what needs to be done. And it takes even more practice to learn to be able to see it and make the corrections quickly. Sometimes it's more cost-effective hiring a colorist who can work quickly, rather than trying to do everything yourself. It depends on the job.

Thanks for this,as I'm convinced that the colorist role is critical to getting professional level work. Your subtle changes and watching them happen real time is great. Something I struggle with frequently.
