ACES for Editors and Colorists, plus The Monitor Shootout!
Presentations on ACES plus the Best Reference-Grade Monitors

Join the Editors' Lounge at 6:30 PM on Friday, June 26 at AlphaDogs in Burbank for a night dedicated to educating the post production community about ACES, the Academy Color Encoding System, as well as the latest in state-of-the-art, reference-grade monitors.

How do you get the entire creative team from the set, through editorial, post and archiving to speak the same language when it comes to color management and file interchange? ACES is the answer!

Alex Forsythe, Academy Technical Lead, ACES Project, Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, will open with a presentation about what ACES is and how it works, with a focus on editorial and post. He will be joined by Digital Intermediate Colorist Trent Johnson of Deluxe Culver City and Editor Shelly Westerman, who will discuss ACES' real world application. The duo collaborated on The Wedding Ringer, a film that employed ACES throughout the creative process. Also present will be Screen Gems Head of Physical Production, Glenn Gainor. Guests can expect to gain real insight into ACES and learn how ACES will impact their work.

The Editors' Lounge Monitor Shootout will present reference grade LCD and OLED monitors from a number of manufacturers (including Boland, Dolby, Flanders Scientific, Sony, and TV Logic). These color-critical screens will be lined up in a row under controlled lighting conditions while displaying the same content, so that attendees can move from monitor to monitor and evaluate them in a way that can't be done at trade show booths. Company representatives will be on hand to answer questions.

RSVP to AlphaDogs at (818) 729-926 or online right away to secure your spot for what promises to be a very enriching evening. We'll see you there!
