Interview with cinematographer and colorist Will Read
I spoke last November with Will Read, a brilliant filmmaker based in London and a keen Creative Cloud and SpeedGrade user. Will was one of the presenters at the SpeedGrade 10th anniversary event we held in Munich in November 2013.
In the interview, Will speaks about his integrated approach to filmmaking. His workflow was born from a bad experience with his first film project. Although he had taken great care to shoot that film well, the final result was spoiled by bad telecine work and even worse color grading. He vowed then and there never again to let someone else ruin his images. Will then set out to learn color grading on his own, so that he could marry that expertise with his love of cinematography. The ultimate result was an end-to-end pipeline which gives the maximum amount of artistic control to the minimum number of people.
Today Will Read is in high demand as a can-do filmmaker with a reputation for stunning image quality.
