At this year’s IBC, FilmLight (stand #7.A45) is hosting the free two-day seminar series, Colour On Stage, on 14-15 September 2019. The event provides an opportunity for visitors to participate in live presentations and discussions with colourists and other creative professionals at the peak of their craft.

From shining a light on the FilmLight BLG ecosystem in VFX, to the role of the colourist today, to understanding colour management and next generation grading tools – this event helps guide attendees through the opportunities and challenges of modern colour finishing and delivery.

Originally staged as a one-day event at both IBC2018 and NAB2019, Colour On Stage has been expanded both due to its popularity and in order to provide sessions with artists throughout the production and post colour pipeline. This year’s IBC programme includes colourists from broadcast, film and commercials, as well as DITs, editors, VFX artists and post-production supervisors.

To date, programme highlights include:
