Color grading is the process of altering and enhancing the color of a motion picture, video image, or still image either electronically, photo-chemically or digitally.

Hi everyone and thanks for checking out this weeks Exposing the Crew short film!

This weeks ETC HIGHLIGHT focuses on the outstanding Color work on the short film Nomad.  The films simple plot, in which a husband tries to take his wife out for the night, allows us the freedom to experience whats going on in the husbands silent, intoxicated mind. A task that couldn’t have been completed without the work of our highlighted crew member, and this films Colorist, Tyler Roth.

In correlation with the Director and Creative Producers, a Colorists job is to enhance the quality of a story by altering the colors of all the images in a film. Images are purposefully shot flat in camera to give a Colorist more flexibility to increase contrasts, adjust hues, and creatively utilize contrasting colors.

Tyler does a particularly impressive job using his color grading skills to focus the attention of the audience. Take a look at the images in the film at time codes 0:53, 4:06, 5:05, and 7:58. The color work in all four of these images uses a vignetting method to draw your attention away from unimportant background and foregrounds, propelling you to concentrate on what’s important. The characters.

Thank you Tyler Roth for helping create such a unique short film for our viewers this week. If your project doesn’t yet have a Colorist you can contact Tyler at

We’d also like to thank Director/Writer Brad Bischoff, for his contribution and submission of this project.

Thank you for watching this week’s Exposing the Crew “EXPOSED” short film!

See You Next Tuesday,
