Colorist Robbie Carman began his career as an editor, so he knows both sides of the traditional divide between cutting and finishing. But he’ll be the first to tell you that the traditional divide is a thing of the past. With today’s digital workflows, powerful hardware and production tools creative work with color is much more accessible.
At NAB this year, Robbie presented a session that would have been inconceivable even just a few short years ago: “Work Like an Editor, Think Like a Colorist,” where he highlighted the new color workflows between Premiere Pro, SpeedGrade, and Project Candy. Most importantly for many filmmakers and production professionals, he showed how color can be a incorporated into everyone’s workflow – especially with the new color tools coming soon to the Creative Cloud.
Robbie kicked off his NAB presentation with a quote from Expressionist artist Vassily Kandinksy: “Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” Robbie continued, “Everything I do as a colorist, I try to live by this guiding principle.” As a speaker, he has a knack to making complex content easy and engaging.
