    Variety ran the news about Lou Levinson joining Colorist Society International.  You can read the full story here:

    http://variety.com/2016/artisans/news/lou-levinson-named-fellow-of-colorist-society-international-1201797571/


    “The colorist is a person whose primary responsibility is to help creative authors of visual storytelling in all its forms further that storytelling with the ‘look,’” Levinson said. “This means dealing with color, density, texture, composition, and motion issues as prime involvement. Helping the industry recognize the value of the colorist is why I support CSI’s mission statement.”

    We're very excited about Lou's participation in CSI, and that Variety took notice of this distinguished honor.

    Legendary motion picture Color Timer Dale Grahn has been named a Fellow of the Colorist Society International (CSI). With hundreds of major film credits including, ‘Saving Private Ryan,’ ‘War of the Worlds,’ ‘Minority Report,’ ‘Gladiator,’ and ‘Predator’ Dale Grahn has shaped much of the look of modern cinema, working with directors Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, and cinematographers Janusz Kaminski, Michael Ballhaus, John Mathieson.

    “CSI is very exciting,” said Grahn upon receiving this distinguished honor. “CSI will help to change the way the industry views the colorist. This is the single best thing that could happen to the industry and the colorist. But the best part for me is that I will be able to work with CSI Leadership in this very important addition to the industry and the art of the craft.”

    Colorist Society International (also known as CSI) is the first organization devoted exclusively to furthering and honoring the professional achievements of the colorist community.

    A Fellow is an honorary position within CSI. It is given out in honor of distinguished service to the art and craft of color in motion pictures and television.

    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.

    Motion Picture and Television Colorists Jim Wicks and Kevin Shaw founded colorist Society International. CSI is dedicated to advancing the craft, education, and public awareness of the art and science of color grading and color correction. 

    The Colorist Society International is a paid membership organization that will seek 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.

    Check out the full story that Warren wrote and posted, (here).

    Hey all, Kevin and I want to take a moment to thank all of you who have expressed interest in joining or knowing more about CSI. The overwhelming response is exciting. And, to be honest, a little bit scary, too. The work has been nonstop.

    CSI was created, in part, to help advance the art and science of color correction and color grading. Our goal is that you will be able to exchange ideas, discuss techniques and promote color as an art form.

    Until now, those of us in the color community have not been properly represented. As Dale Grahn says, “In the film industry, unrepresented means unrecognized.” We hope CSI will help change that.

    You'll be hearing from us soon. Meantime, check out the latest blog report on the CSI launch, on Randi Altman's PostPerspective blog.

    Thank you for your patience. You will be hearing from us soon.

    Cheers, Jim

    Las Vegas, NV - Motion Picture and Television Colorists Jim Wicks and Kevin Shaw are excited to announce the first professional association for colorists with the launch of Colorist Society International. The Colorist Society International (also known as CSI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the craft, education, and public awareness of the art and science of color grading and color correction. 

    The Colorist Society International is a paid membership organization that will seek 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.

    The official launch date is today, Monday April 18, 2016.

    "The colorist community has been growing for quite some time," said Kevin Shaw, co-founder. "We believe that a society by, for, and about colorists is long overdue. Current representation for colorists is fragmented and we feel that the industry would be better served with the coherent voice of the Colorist Society International"

    "The notion of a colorist society is not far fetched," said Jim Wicks, co-founder. "In much the same way, directors, cinematographers, and editors - the artists that we work closely with - have their own professional associations, each with similar mission statements and objectives."

    The official name is Colorist Society International, however it can also be abbreviated to The Colorist Society, or by its acronym CSI.

    Membership is open to professional colorists, editor/colorists, DITs, telecine operators, color timers, finishers, and color scientists. Corporate sponsors and members from alliance organizations, such as cinematographers, directors, producers, are also welcome.

    For more information about Colorist Society International contact Kevin Shaw, Jim Wicks at: info@coloristsociety.com.
