IBC 2016: 3rd Colorist Mixer and CSI

Well, an other IBC done! More than technological developments and innovations, this year will definitely be marked by a major development in sharing and collaboration, for both software tools and working relationships. Remote & collaborative work keep growing, extending the limits to international contributions, while reducing time with parallel and real time participations. Concomitantly, following technical evolution and market trends new corporatist communities congregate online. Then people meet and join forces to exchange expertise and ideas, develop their networks, possibly work together and ultimately unite to improve their professional status; that's what the Colorist Mixer and Colorist Society International - CSI - are all about for colorists, editor/colorists, DIT's, telecine operators, color timers, finishers, restoration artists and color scientists.

This 3rd European Colorist Mixer was held in the well-named Felix Meritis, an imposing XVIIIth century building downtown Amsterdam, that could gather this growing community. This year Jim Wicks came to introduce Colorist Society International to the audience. Warren EaglesDado ValenticDan Moran, Simon Walker, and Guy Molin between others, as CSI members but also International Colorist Academy or Mixing Light instructors, were widely involved, not only by spreading the word but also in the event itself. Beside the networking part, as last year, a quizz and a raffle were organized - lots of prizes were offered by the sponsors, most of them being present -, in a playful atmosphere which definitely makes this social gathering a place to go when color is your business.

SMPTE 2015

So proud I was able to visit the SMPTE 2015 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition, in Hollywood. This year, the sessions focused on virtual and augmented reality (VR & AR), ultra high definition (UHD), high dynamic range (HDR), higher frame rate (HFR) and wide color gamut (WCG). I could even try the brand new Eos C300 Mark II camera before Canon start shipping them!

EMC : cours d'étalonnage avec DaVinci Resolve

Pour la troisième année consécutive, j'ai été chargée par EMC d'enseigner l'étalonnage avec DaVinci Resolve auprès d'une vingtaine d'étudiants, pour l'obtention du diplôme d'Etat de monteur-truquiste. Bien que ce ne soit pas encore au programme de l'Education nationale, l'école a choisi d'enrichir cette formation en alternance par ce module car cette compétence est de plus en plus demandée par les employeurs.

IBC-CM14-2-sd

Besides the IBC, this year, Amsterdam hosted the 1st European Colorist Mixer. Organized by The International Colorist Academy in association with Mixing Light, this networking evening was orchestrated by Warren Eagles and supported by Guy Molin from the NBF. Over 120 people, mostly colorists, DITs, DPs and directors went to Zeppos (on the most busy evening of the convention), joined by the sponsors of the event: softwares, plugins and devices as well as broadcast services were generously donated for an amazing raffle; licenses for Resolve, Scratch, Nucoda, FireCloud, Sapphire, LightSpace CMS, Mamba FX and YoYotta ID but also an Element virtual surface, a mini video projector, an AJA LUT box, a discount coupon for an FSI monitor and a 2 hour session at Dolby Screening Room in London (which I won), were distributed by Dado Valentic. Michael Horton and Daniel Bérubé from the SuperMeet (programmed the day after) also joined us. There is no doubt this moment of conviviality and comeradship saw the birth of a european network, expanding the one already developed by the NAB Colorist Mixer. So, long live the Colorist Mixers!

nablvsignflwfr-ldBilan de ma visite au NAB Show 2014 de Las Vegas, parmi les 98 015 visiteurs venus de 160 pays à la rencontre des quelques 1746 exposants : comme promis sur Facebook pendant le salon, voici un compendium des nouveautés et innovations qui ont attiré mon attention cette année. Quelques qualificatifs à la clef…
This is my own best of NAB SHOW 2014 I explored among the 98 015 visitors from 160 countries come to meet 1746 exhibitors: as promised on Facebook, this is a compendium of the hot picks and innovations that focused my attention this year. A few adjectives on top…

cameras-4pix2-ldGigantesque : parmi une myriade de nouveautés, dont le Cintel Film Scanner qui numérise du 35mm et du 16mm en temps réel, encore une révolution chez Blackmagic design avec l'écran 10" qui repense l'ergonomie des 2 nouvelles caméras modulables (avec enregistrement sur doubles cartes CFast), alors que nous attendons encore la livraison de la Production Camera 4K de l'an dernier ! Une caméra de plateau au design surprenant, la Studio Camera HD est censée être déjà disponible et sa grande sœur en UHD le serait en Juin prochain ; et l'URSA avec ses déclinaisons du 4K super 35 au boîtier enregistreur-moniteur annoncées pour Juillet. On parie ?! 
Gigantic: among myriads of new products, including the Cintel Film Scanner which scans real-time 35mm and 16mm, once again Blackmagic design makes its revolution with a 10" screen that rethinks the ergonomy of 2 new modular cameras (recording on dual CFast cards), whereas we're still waiting for the delivery of last year Production Camera 4K! The Studio Camera HD, a broadcast camera for live productions, with an unusual design supposed to be already available, and its Ultra HD version announced for June; and URSA 4K digital film camera with its upgrades from recorder-monitor to Super 35 PL, scheduled for July; shall we bet?!

cameras-6pix3-ldRobuste : à la surprise générale AJA révèle CION sa caméra 4K à global shutter, réglable aussi via LAN par internet et ergonomique avec son épaulière intégrée.
Impressionnante : la nouvelle VariCam de Panasonic et ses 2 versions modulaires Super35 4K jusqu'à 120 ips en interne & HS 2/3, enregistrant en simultané différents codecs & formats (ProRes inclus) avec bientôt un boîtier Codex pour enregistrer du 4K Raw ; dispo à l'automne.
Compacte : l'Action CAM de Codex (décidément tout le monde fait des caméras !!!) en solo ou en stéréo, synchronisable avec l'ARRI Alexa; en monocable/cam jusqu'à 180m, un pack de 2 caméras & 1 recorder ne pesant que 1,5 kg !
Versatile : c'est donc le maître-mot cette année en matière de caméras (même Sony s'y met avec les F5 & F55), puisqu'au delà des montures mêmes, les codecs et les formats acceptés se multiplient et s'enregistrent en parallèle (des proxies à la 4K voire avec des LUT's), les caméras ont des géométries variables jusqu'à devenir dockables pour en accueillir d'autres (y compris des dslr chez BMD), l'ergonomie remet l'épaulière à la mode façon ENG et la connectique semble se stabiliser… l'adaptabilité économique irait-elle jusqu'au développement durable ?!
Robust: to everyone's surprise AJA unveils CION its 4K global shutter camera, with a solid and ergonomic design including a shoulder-mount, and network-based controllable via LAN which allows infinite remote configurations.
Impressive: the new Panasonic VariCam with its 2 modular models Super35 4K up to 120 fps intern & HS 2/3, recording simultaneously differents codecs and formats (ProRes included) with coming soon a Codex 4K Raw recorder; available in the Fall.
Compact: Codex Action Cam (camera business is definitely expanding!!!) for solo or stereo use, synchronizable with ARRI Alexa; 1 single cable/cam up to 180m, and a pack of 2 cameras + 1 recorder weighing only 1,5kg!
Versatility: the key-word for cameras this year (even Sony with F5 & F55) as beyond lenses mounts, supported codecs and formats increase with simultaneous recordings (commonly from proxies to 4K, with LUT's even), cameras get variable-geometry to ultimately becoming dockable sets to connect other cameras (even DSLR for BMD), the ergonomy merges to ENG shaped cameras and finally cable connections seem to stabilize… would economic adaptability become sustainable ?!

supports, etc-ldEfficace : la version Ring du M5 de Freefly et leur nouveau module M15 (2ème génération de MōVI) adapté à Cinestar le drône, à Tero le buggy ou encore dernièrement sur une motocross via un bras articulé de Steadicam, et géré à distance par le Controller à joystick pour les fonctions PTR & FIZ.
Esthétiques : les 2 nouveaux G-RAID Studio Thunderbolt 2 pour 2 & 4 baies de G-Technology en version camouflage mode New MacPro, ici présentés par Mathieu Marano au Front Créatif de Montréal.
Encyclopédique : le légendaire Larry Jordan présentant le Digital Production BuZZ qui couvre en live et podcast tout le salon.
Efficient: Freefly Ring version for its M5 and the M15 new model (MōVI 2nd generation) adapted to the drone Cinestar, the buggy Tero and just released for a Steadicam armed  motocross, remotely managed by the controller with joysticks for the PTR & FIZ functions.
Aesthetic: the freshly released Thunderbolt 2 G-Raid Studio in two & four-bay versions designed to shape discretely with the New MacPro, here introduced on G-Technology's booth by Mathieu Marano from the FCMTL.
Encyclopaedic: the legendary Larry Jordan hosting the Digital Production BuZZ that covers the whole exhibition.

screens-frame-7pix-ldBluffants : le Shogun d'Atomos, nouveau recorder 4K (2 ssd en RAID) avec écran tactile IPS 7" calibrable, et le Ninja Star, pocket recorder de 100g, avec une carte CFast 2.0, ici présentés par Heater Williams Atomos Vice president Sales North America et Michel Suissa, Post-production Solutions Expert du Studio-B&H.
Profonds : les noirs du moniteur de référence Sony BVM-X300TI 4K Trimaster OLED 30" (grand frère du 25" HD déjà sorti), encore prototype dispo prévue fin d'année. 
Précis : les détails des 2 moniteurs de référence EIZO LCD ColorEdge 
31" DCI 4K24" UHD & aussi protos, dispo prévue fin 2nd semestre.
Spectaculaire : le DP7-Pro de SmallHD, écran 7" de monitoring et d'étalonnage de terrain temps-réel avec création de LUT's 3D, déclinable en IPS LCD, High Bright & OLED.
Stunning: Atomos Shogun 4K monitor/recorder (dual SSD) with its 7" IPS touchscreen display and the Ninja Star, a 100g blind pocket recorder, using CFast 2.0 cards, here presented by Atomos Vice President Sales North America Heater Williams and Michel Suissa, Post-production Solutions Expert from Studio-B&H.
Deep: the blacks of Sony's 4K 30" OLED next master monitor, the BVM-X300TI Trimaster (big brother of the 25" already released), still prototype, announced for the end of the year.
Razor Sharp: the details on EIZO's ColorEdge 31" DCI 4K & 24" UHD, also reference protos, scheduled for the 2nd semester.
Spectacular: the DP7-Pro, a 7" field monitor which allows real-time grading and 3D LUT's process; SmallHD offers 3 models: IPS LCD & High Bright as weel as OLED.

etalo-frame-6pix-ldIncontournables : les démos de SCRATCH 8 (qui encode maintenant le ProRes en PC)  par Daniel Esperanssa accompagné du ToughPad 4K 20" de Panasonic pour le SCRATCH Play (pro media player gratuit d'Assimilate), et celles du SCRATCH Lab par Laura Castelli auprès des DIT sur le stand de Codex.
Hallucinant : Smoke 2015 présenté par Ken LaRue, côté compositing, tracking, FX et 3D, au Supermeet sur des rushes de "The Place Where You Live" d'Alexis Van Hurkman.
Percutante : la calibration de moniteurs de référence avec CalMAN pour DaVinci Resolve par Tom Parish sur le stand de SpectraCal où l'on calibrait gratuitement votre laptop.
Magistrales : les démos de DaVinci Resolve 11 par Alexis Van Hurkman : ici pour Dado Valentic, un best-of des 70 nouvelles fonctions de montage sur un total de 140 ! puis au Supermeet en compagnie de Paul Sacone sur la collaboration distante montage/étalonnage 1 timeline/2 postes et un florilège de fonctionnalités très attendues en étalonnage : vibrance, color-checker & clips groupés… dispo prévue fin Juin.
Inescapable: Daniel Esperanssa's demos of SCRATCH 8 (which now encodes ProRes on PC's) accompanied by a 4K 20" Panasonic ToughPad running SCRATCH Play (Assimilate free pro media player), plus the rich sessions Laura Castelli made of SCRATCH Lab on Codex Booth.
Astonishing: Smoke 2015, for its compositing, FX & 3D tracking functions reviewed by Ken LaRue at Supermeet, using rushes from Alexis Van Hurkman's "The Place Where You Live" feature movie.
Spotless: the calibration of reference monitors Tom Parish operated with CalMAN for DaVinci Resolve on SpectraCal Booth where laptops were also calibrated for free.
MasterfulAlexis Van Hurkman's DaVinci Resolve 11 demos; here experimenting with Dado Valentic and there with Paul Sacone during the Supermeet session, introducing a few key-features among the 140 as remote collaboration editing/grading 1 timeline/2 stations, vibrance, color-checker balance, grouped clips grading… available late June.

withwarren&dado-wfr-ldEnfin, au délà des machines et des logiciels, le NAB c'est aussi une formidable opportunité pour rencontrer et retrouver les acteurs de son milieu professionnel et développer son réseau ; évidemment sur le salon mais aussi à l'occasion d'événements spéciaux tels que le célèbre barbecue SCRATCH ou encore le Colorist Mixer
Finally, beyond machines and softwares, the NAB is also a tremendous opportunity to increase your network; obviously in the exhibition but also during special events such as the famous SCRATCH barbecue or the Colorist Mixer, for example…

Depuis Septembre 2013, EMC - l'École Supérieure des Métiers de L'Image, du Son et du Multimédia - m'a chargée d'enseigner DaVinci Resolve aux élèves de 2ème année du Diplôme d'État de Monteur Graphiste Vidéo. La classe compte 16 élèves qui sont formés en alternance (1 semaine de cours / 2 semaines en entreprise) pendant 2 ans.
Cette école située à Malakoff, qui propose 2 Prépas, 5 BTS, 3 Diplômes d'État (Titres) et 3 troisièmes années de Spécialisation, innove en la matière en offrant à ses étudiants monteurs-truquistes des cours d'étalonnage alors que cela n'est pas obligatoire au programme. Ayant saisi l'importance croissante de cette compétence, EMC, créée en 1989, se distingue donc en optant pour une professionnalisation au plus proche des besoins réels du secteur audiovisuel. La réactivité des étudiants s'en trouve d'autant plus accrue puisqu'ils sont en mesure de mettre immédiatement en pratique ce qu'ils ont appris, dans un cadre professionnel.
Pour ma part, cette nouvelle expérience est enrichie au contact d'étudiants particulièrement dynamiques et créatifs dont je serai heureuse de suivre le parcours professionnel.

Since September 2013, EMC - High School for Audiovisual & Multimedia - has put me in charge of teaching DaVinci Resolve to the 2nd year Class of the Video Editor-Graphic Designer State-Certification. There are 16 students in the class, following a work-linked training (1 week of courses for 2 weeks in enterprise) during 2 years.
Based in Malakoff (Paris), this school which proposes 2 Preparatory classes (after Baccalaureate), 5 Vocationnal training Certifications, 3 State-Certifications and 3 3rd year Specializations, innovates by offering to its video editor-compositor students color grading courses while this isn't yet entered in the national exam. Having grasped the growing importance of this skill, EMC created in 1989, distinguises itself by listening closely to the audiovisual sector demands to provide a "real-time professionalization". The reactivity of the students increases as they can immediately put into practice what they learned at school, in the company the week after.
For my part, this new experience was enhanced by the contact with these young students, specially dynamic and creative, that I'll be glad to follow the carreer paths.
