IFH 246: Directing Color on Set with Ollie Kenchington

Directing Color on Set with Ollie Kenchington

Today on the show we have color master Ollie Kenchington. Ollie is a filmmaker, editor, and colorist. He has released an amazing new course called Directing Color. The course focuses on the use of color not only in color grading but also on-set. Since I’ve been a colorist for over a decade I know the importance of color and want to share that info with the IFH Tribe.

Ollie’s company, Korro Films, produces commercials, short films, documentaries and branded content for major international clients, with Ollie Kenchington carrying out senior editor and colorist duties on every project. Ollie Kenchington is an assured practitioner across all areas of filmmaking, giving him a deep understanding of the creative process which allows his agency to flourish in this competitive industry. Additionally, he is an accomplished educator and founder of Korro Academy.

In Directing Color, filmmaker, editor, and colorist Ollie Kenchington explore how visual language cues, color theory and even color grading techniques can be used throughout the filmmaking process to not just create a “look” but to enhance storytelling. He challenges directors, cinematographers and filmmakers to think of color first rather than the more common approach of leaving color considerations until post-production.

A look at how to balance single or multiple cameras using Xrite’s ColorChecker Video chart.

Enjoy my conversation with Ollie Kenchington.
