“All I did was simply ask for my onscreen credit to include
CSI after my name. The Producer and the Director said, ‘no problem.’”
Colorist and CSI co-founder Jim Wicks asked for – and
received – CSI credit for his work as Digital Intermediate Supervising Colorist
on the feature motion picture ‘Monserrate, ¿cómo el cerro?’
The romantic comedy was shot in Miami and Columbia and is
set for wide release in Latin America.

When you get CSI credit for your work, send us a high res

Don’t forget there are two CSI forums.
If you are an associate or alliance member, the forum is a great place to ask questions or discuss things out of public view. There are some good forums out there, but sometimes it is better to discuss things among ourselves. Most recently, Roel Videler posted some helpful resources to the Associate forum. The main thread on the full member forum is a discussion on our goals and how to get there.
Both Member areas have exclusive CSI discounts, software suggestions, and download pages. If you have something to share, or something you are looking for use the forums or send it to email@example.com.
As always, we appreciate our sponsors (and hope to add more to the list).
