Two filmmakers chasing the dream of producing their first feature film...
...and financing it solely through winning video contests.

I found a couple of amazing tutorials that any aspiring filmmaker should see. Over the past 8 years of making films, color correction always seemed more complicated than it actually is.

Here are a couple of invaluable resources that have helped us understand color correction:

1. The video below. It's a bit on the long side and sometimes moves a little quickly, but if you've ever seen the 3-way color correction filter in Final Cut Pro you'll be fine.

Red Giant TV Episode 22: Creating a Summer Blockbuster Film Look from Stu Maschwitz on Vimeo.

2. Red Giant's Colorista. This program makes it extremely easy to use "power windows" (in other words, isolate and color correct specific sections of an image).

You can also download trial versions of Colorista and Magic Bullet from the Red Giant site. There it is!
