What Makes Colorists so Special?

I came across this link the other day and was quite surprised to find such a detailed article focusing on the craft that I call my profession.  It’s a great look at the mysterious world of color grading and what it entails.  Showcasing interviews with some of the best colorists in London, it offers a detailed insight into a rather unusual and unknown world.

Ultimately commercial work is a combination of artistic vision, skill, personally, and confidence.  And I think the interviews showcase the importance of all of them.  There are some great insights from top tier colorists throughout the article, but this one actually made me laugh out loud…

“It always brings me down to earth then I go on holiday and no one actually gives a shit what I do for a living. It’s not that important to people.”
