What is Colorist Society International?
Colorist Society International (CSI) represents a unified voice for the professional colorist in the film and digital entertainment industry, and promotes the creative art and science of color grading, restoration, and finishing.
The CSI is the first professional society devoted exclusively to furthering and honoring the professional achievements of the colorist community. It is not a labor union or guild, but an educational and cultural resource.
Colorist Society International is a non-profit professional society dedicated to advancing the craft, education, and public awareness of the art and science of color grading and color correction.
CSI seeks to increase the entertainment value of film and digital projects by attaining artistic pre-eminence and scientific achievement in the creative art of color; and to bring into close alliance those color artists who desire to advance the prestige and dignity of the color profession.
Membership is open to professional colorists, editor/colorists, DITs, telecine operators, color timers, finishers, restoration artists and color scientists. Corporate sponsors and members from alliance organizations, such as cinematographers, directors, producers, are also welcome.
