From The Publisher
This past Sunday I mentioned a special offer for Tao Newsletter readers for a webinar on Saturday, November 6.

As promised, this email is your (one and only) reminder to sign up. What follows are my comments about the webinar from the Sunday Newsletter:


This week I'm starting the Newsletter with a promotion on behalf of Los Angeles colorist Mark Todd Osborne. Over the years I had a few meals with Mark, mostly at trade shows and conferences. I've also sat in on a few of his presentations. Mark is one of the colorists working on high-profile big-budget features and series who is 'out there' and sharing his insights with us.

I've found that colorists like Mark tend to have a unique view on what happens when a colorist becomes a collaborator with the D.P. and director; getting involved early, locking down color management workflows, working through camera tests, and working with color scientists.

But high-profile projects can be a pressure cooker. If you do enough of this kind of work, it forces colorists like Mark to be intentional with their workflows. When you're intentional in your work, there's a good chance you'll be able to communicate the reasoning and actions behind those intentions. In my experience, Mark is good at that kind of sharing.

So where's the 'promotional' part of this week's introduction?

Mark is giving a 6-hour webinar next Saturday, November 6. It's being hosted by TAC (they've snagged some good talent in the past year for these kinds of webinars). The focus on his webinar is on 'look development' and moving between the set and the grading suite.

Mark reached out to me this week to see if I'd link to the webinar signup page in the Newsletter? TAC followed up and offered a discount code to you, my reader. It's been a while since I featured an offer for Newsletter readers so here's TAC's offer for you plus a summary of what Mark's talking about:
Learn image analysis and the psychology of color from Hollywood veteran colorist, Mark Todd Osborne. Topics include:

- Working with cinematographers creating 'show LUTs' for use on-set and in the grading suite
- Training the eye to read Raw images
- The theory and practice of color management
- Creating looks and node tree breakdowns in DaVinci Resolve
- Digital vs. Film Photography and film emulation

Full transparency: The Tao Newsletter gets an affiliate fee if you use the code TAO. If you're against affiliate fees, feel free to skip the discount code and I won't see a dime - but Mark's webinar should still be worth it.

This reminder email on a Thursday is an experiment - since lots of us can't commit to a Saturday event a week ahead of time. If you do attend this webinar, feel free to press 'reply' and let me know if you'd like to see more of these types of offers from the Newsletter?

One more thing...

The next Sunday Newsletter delivers on November 14.

I'm skipping this weekend while preparing for the 500th edition of the Newsletter :-)

Happy Grading!
