What people say about it:
“The workshop at Color Space was very informative and interesting. I learned a lot about color and how people experience colors. It is not just about pushing buttons: I also learned the technique behind the buttons when I push them and I can now take the quality of my films to the next level.”
Nicole van den Berg
Cinematographer - Berg Films
“Bruno's workshop gave me a much better understanding of the relationship between what the lens sees, what goes through the video pipeline and what ultimately gets to be shown on a screen. Bruno is able not only to explain the technique in comprehensible language, but also to explain why certain procedures are necessary.”
VFX artist / Software Engineer
“An eye opener for me and a new way to interpret how I look at color and light, pre- and post-production. Would recommend this workshop for anyone that wants to put knowledge to practice.”

What will be covered?
The workshop will cover the science behind color with a
focus on digital video. From optics, the biology of human
vision, all the way to how images are captured by a
camera, stored on a computer, sent to a screen and then
perceived by our eyes.
The subject will be approached in a friendly way for creative
professionals, so you don't have to be a scientist or biologist
to understand it. The workshop will be an informal talk
between the speaker and the listeners and the attendees will
be invited to share their own doubts and questions to be
discussed and studied by the group.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to send their own material ahead of time should they wish for a specific analysis. Note: to send your own material and have it be used during the workshop, you must accept certain terms and conditions.
The participants will get to apply the science learned during the first day using DaVinci Resolve software*, under guidance of the speaker.
The speaker will show how to apply color science on real video material and ask the participants to give it a shot. A round of evaluation of their work will follow, with tips and valuable information.
The contents of Day 2 are highly dynamic and vary from workshop to workshop, depending on the needs and questions of the participants. There will be room for improvisation, where participants may bring their own questions and challenges to the group.
*The participants must bring their own laptop capable of running DaVinci Resolve software comfortably with 1080p video (in ProRes or DNx codecs). The software (non-studio version) can be downloaded and installed for free from the website of Blackmagic Design. It is also fine if you already have the paid version installed.
The workshop is in English.

Bruno Ramos has over 18 years of experience with film and
