(Buford, Georgia--April 24, 2013) Biscardi Creative Media (BCM) welcomes world renowned Colorist and founder of, Patrick Inhofer, for his Colorist Flight School, May 30 - June 1. The three-day workshop is geared towards the craft of color grading. Inhofer will teach attendees the craft of color grading while bringing them up-to-speed on DaVinci Resolve (and Resolve Lite). Students in the workshop will also grade a short film along with Patrick. With a limit of 10 students, the workshop will be very interactive.

What is Colorist Flight School? Colorist Flight School is a systematic approach to teaching color grading technique using a real-life project. Students grade a short film in class--with immediate instructor feedback. There are three elements to Tao of Color's Colorist Flight School training (both LIVE! and online):
  • Learn your instrument panel - Currently, the instrument panel being taught in this workshop is DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Resolve Lite.
  • Practice in a 'Flight Simulator' - Training is nearly 100% project-based. The key to becoming confident in color correction is by knowing you can match dozens of shots into a seamless continuous whole. And the only way to gain that confidence is to grade dozens of shots telling a single story. In the workshop students are provided a short film with notes from the Director--the 'Flight Simulator'--encouraging the development of muscle memory and confidence for students to do it on their own.
  • Feedback - The training (LIVE! or online) always provides attendees with actionable feedback of their work.

During the event students will grade a short film that the entire class color corrects together over 2-3 days! Workshop facilitators will provide a USB 3 hard drive with the short film and project files--for students to take home and continue practicing. Students will be licensed to use excerpts of the short film in their color grading demo reel and in private client demos!

"We've been working with Patrick for the past six months to develop this workshop," said BCM Principal Walter Biscardi, Jr. "I wanted this to be a very small class allowing more one on one interaction with the instructor. The fact that attendees will not only be able to grade a short film with Patrick but will also be able take home the footage after the class is simply incredible. I've not seen anything like that offered before."

Who should consider participating in Colorist Flight School? Editors, Colorists, Assistant Editors and beginning Davinci Resolve Users. Colorist Fight School is practical training designed to further the careers of industry professionals. The three-day workshop will be hosted at Biscardi Creative Media's production facility in Buford GA, May 30 - June 1. This is the second training event to be held at BCM with more events in the planning stages.

"I'm fortunate to have a many talented friends in this industry and we're developing more of these small, very high end training opportunities for folks who want to go beyond just learning how to push buttons," said Biscardi. "Between these live events and our newly launched website we aim to become that missing link resource that advances professionals' careers through practical, useful knowledge of all aspects of our industry."
