Technicolor. When you say the name it harkens back to the golden age studio era. It brings to mind the larger-than-life stars of the silver-screen, epic production values, and a hyper-vibrant punchy, onslaught of color that overwhelms the eye. While the complicated technological and chemical process of 3-strip Technicolor film is no longer available to filmmakers, we can approximate the signature Technicolor look digitally in DaVinci Resolve.

I also saw the latest gear from Canon, Panasonic, Sony, Sound Devices, Go-Pro, Assimilate, etc., all in the same day.
The state of the film and video tech industry in 2012? Book it. Done. And my feet didn’t even get sore. I wish more trade shows were like this.
