The International Colorist Academy (ICA) provides a range of training courses geared towards colorists and post production facilities. Courses are delivered by independent colorists located around the world and range from basic color theory, digital intermediate and film workflows, telecine and lab grading, client interaction, and looks and styles. The classes and workshops cover a broad range of manufacturer color grading systems and many courses are not system specific.
The ICA was founded in 2009 by colorists, Kevin Shaw and Warren Eagles who between them have over 50 years of grading experience in all areas of the color correction industry. They can also boast over 30 years of training and demo experience. Kevin and Warren are currently working colorists who have pooled their valuable experience in grading Commercials, DI, music and Drama projects, to create hands on colorist training courses. Dado Valentic, Cédric Lejeune, Jeff Olm, Simon Walker, Sascha Haber and Blake Jones have joined the ICA as instructors and helped us expand the range of courses and grading systems that the ICA covers.
The way we color images and the tools we use have changed dramatically in recent times. Colorists are now emerging from many different areas of our industry some even coming from outside the industry. Until now new colorists could hunt for a book or follow a DVD, but what these didn’t give you was real world experience. The ICA offers a wide variety of courses designed to help colorists – and people who work with colorists – develop their skills and expand their understandings of best practices in color science and color correction.
ICA courses can be structured to you or your companies needs; if your market is Commercials, Drama, DI or Music clips, we have it covered, enabling you to gain valuable experience that will help you stand out from your competitors.
