“A Bad Grade = Giving The Edit Away”
Welcome to Part 2 of this three-part interview with author, director, and colorist Alexis Van Hurkman. Alexis was kind enough to spend nearly 2.5 hours speaking with me about his career and insights into the art, craft and technology of digital color grading. In Part 2, the main points we cover:
- His Apple Pro Training books
- His newest book, “Color Correction Handbook”
- Colorist control surfaces
- How we see color and how that influences grading

Yes, I am an Amazon affiliate. Anything on this page that links to Amazon is most likely an affiliate link. If you buy anything from my affiliate link I get a 4-6% commission. Which doesn’t quite buy me a tall (small) latte from Starbucks.
Which begs the question: why do bloggers have to report that they received a small commission, and Congressman and Senators donâ€™t have to state which lobbyists they took tens of thousands of dollars from each time they vote on a bill? It might go in some crappy little report, but why donâ€™t they have to stand up when they vote and say, â€œI think this health insurance provision is GREAT. Letâ€™s make it law! By the way, the health care industry flew me to Hawaii to have sex with underage hookers for a week.”
