We will focus heavily on color correction and using Speedgrade to add looks and color grades to your work. We will also delve further into After Effects for students interested in motion graphics and special FX. While the course won’t focus on shooting in class, there will be opportunities to work with cameras in class as well as a day with the green screen.
