Color Correction is a perfect blend of the skills I learned working in hi-tech, and the artistic talents I have honed as a cinematographer. The color correction suite is now where images get finished and that accounts for a significant percentage of the image's final look" - Paul Nordin, our cinematographer and colorist.
