    “At last, a Society that represents colorists! For years we have talked about an association, moaned about lack of recognition and wished for better representation.”

    So said colorist Warren Eagles, who let fly with the reasons why he joined Colorist Society International (CSI), and why you should, too!

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

    Thanks Warren!

    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.
