The right balance of colors in a movie is an important ingredient to the success of any scene. Color can make it truly endearing, detached, engaging, or even absolutely terrifying. Think of your favorite movies... Remember their look and feel? As it turns out, a lot of it is in the colorist's hands (and eyes). And that's what this 30-tutorial course is all about: Teaching you about color and balance to craft that perfect look for your story and draw your audience in!

Apple-certified master trainer Ben Balser starts off this course with an animated explanation on the physics of light and color. Then he explains how and why Color, Saturation and Exposure team up to give your video a unique vibe. He guides you through a pro colorist's workflow and teaches you, step by step, how to apply each adjustment and why they all play a crucial role in the final output.

As his encore, our Master Colorist shares some tips and demonstrates the use of complex shape masks to create gorgeous vignette effects! You'll also watch day turn into night as Ben tweaks FCP X's color parameters to create that illusion.
