LONDON— The Colorist Society International (CSI) and the International Colorist Academy (iColorist) continue their popular series of Colorist Mixers with two virtual events to be held before the end of the year.
On October 23, from 7pm to 11pm GMT, the two organizations will host a Halloween-themed, social mixer in lieu of their annual in-person NAB party. It’s a chance for colorists and others to get together with colleagues from around the globe to share cocktails, chat and have fun. The event will feature a tech chat, a costume contest and a film quiz, with prizes provided by event sponsors Dolby, Filmworkz, fxphd, SGO and others. It is free and open to all, but registration is required at: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZAqfuqvqz4iHtMgdlVBdT_47Uu7tJySJbJ6
On December 4, CSI and iColorist will present a 6-hour end-of-year mixer that will feature a full slate of speakers, panel discussions, technology demonstrations, contests, door prizes and other events. A detailed agenda and registration information will be available soon at coloristmixer.com.
CSI and iColorist also launched Color Space Cadets in September, a free, monthly livestream series on YouTube featuring industry experts discussing grading, color and filmmaking. Topics are chosen in advance by participants and will cover issues such as “Rates, Fees and Charging,” “Mental Health/Working Conditions,” “Color Space” and “Image Restoration Tools.” Audience members are encouraged to submit questions during the livestream.
The next Color Space Cadets event is slated for Thursday, October 28 at 6pm GMT and will feature CSI president Kevin Shaw and colorist Warren Eagles (with other iColorist trainers and special guest speakers) in a discussion titled 2021 Show and Film Looks.

Color Space Cadets was launched to keep industry players abreast of the latest developments in their field at a time when many were curtailing training plans and trade shows were cancelled due to the pandemic. “We’re committed to continuing to pass on knowledge,” says Shaw. “These monthly YouTube events feature experts from across the spectrum of production and post-production.”
