For who?

 

The workshop program is so structured that we start from scratch, but we go by the basics quite fast to focus on advanced topics as soon as possible. Of course, if anyone does not catch up, our lecturer gives the rest of the group tasks and explains individually. Up until now, we had people who already work in grading environment and people who were just about to start their color correction adventure or started recently. We think it is a little bit so that at every stage of advancement of an individual person, a different lesson will be taken from such workshops. So if You are ready to swallow a huge pill of knowledge and industry tips and techniques, then You came to the right place. Hope to see You soon!
