Steve Hullfish, author, editor, producer

Steve Hullfish is an author, editor, producer, and all-around good guy. He’s written several books on digital production and color grading; including the particularly (and deservedly) well-received and original book on color grading, “The Art & Technique of Digital Color Correction“. In Part 1 we discuss:

  • Shading Cameras
  • Being trained by colorist Bob Sliga (circa 1997)
  • Using scopes to develop a good ‘eye’
  • Getting started with DV Magazine
  • Publishing his first color correction book (NOT in black & white)
  • Grading vs Correcting
  • Working with a dozen professional colorists
  • ‘Selling’ the grade
  • Communicating with clients
