Join host Larry Jordan and co-host Mike Horton as they talk with:

Alexis Van Hurkman, Colorist

Larry first met Alexis Van Hurkman through his book The Encyclopedia of Color – a mind-expanding book filled with ideas and inspiration. Since then, both contributed for several years to a magazine published by Peachpit Press called Edit Well. Alexis has written several books on color correction and grading, and recently released his latest called The Color Correction Handbook — 530 pages of color fundamentals, tips, and techniques.

Because we get so many questions on picking the right gear for color grading and getting the right look for your images , we invited Alexis to join us for a two-part interview to help us make our images look great. This week, we look at how to pick the right gear for your studio.

Nino Del Padre, Owner, Del Padre Digital

Far-flung clients are a business opportunity for all of us, so we invited Oliver to tell us how he solves the deadline dilemma.
