Color correcting is perhaps the most important and at times least acknowledged piece of the production game. In this workshop, expert Jordan Snider from ChromaColor, helps you keep up with the times. Youtube is already broadcasting in HDR, and the next generation of wider color gamut panels (Rec 2020) are not far off the horizon. Evolving from SD to HD to HDR, Snider presents an overview of what's next and provides factors to consider when looking to future-proof your next production.
