I am in my final year of studying film production and I am currently doing research about cinematography and color grading.
I am trying to find out more about the collaboration/ workflow between the DP and the Colorist and the issues regarding the authority over the look. I am also looking into whether new, aspiring cinematographers should be their own colorists.
I was wondering if you could please share your opinions about this from your experiences so far.
As a Cinematographer, how were your collaborations with Colorists ? (and vice-versa).
What can DPs/Colorists do to ensure they can work together successfully?
If you are working both as a Cinematographer and a Colorist, why did you choose to have both roles and how difficult was the transition from cinematography to color grading?
Your help would be much appreciated!
