Colorist Meetup marks the 50th anniversary of man landing on the moon.
With the guest appearance of Will Cox, a Colorist, and co-founder of Final Frame, a company responsible for the picture post of IMAX documentary Apollo 11, we will revisit this incredible production and remember one of most astonishing moments in human history. Will was responsible for the breathtaking 8K restoration of never before seen material about the Apollo 11 mission and man landing on the moon. Since 1969 many productions were made about this moment in history but this documentary takes the crown for best image quality ever!
Were you ever wondering, next time we land on the moon, how it might look like?
We have invited Juan Salvo a unique NY colorist and technologist who is best placed to help us understand what future might hold. He will walk us through some of his recent projects which have combined cutting edge technology, color and imagining science. From using machine learning to colorize black & white footage, to his work on acclaimed VR experiences - Juan will explore where the cutting edge of imaging is headed, and how the images of the next landing on the moon will look like.
