Colorist Society International (CSI) and the International Colorist Academy (iColorist) have announced their annual Colorist Mixer, previously timed with NAB Show in the spring and IBC in the fall, which will now take place on December 12 as a solely online event. Taking place over a 24-hour period, the event will include keynote speakers, technical demonstrations, networking opportunities and giveaways that can be accessed across the globe.
The popular event began in 2013, offering professionals connected to color grading an opportunity to meet, network and discuss the latest industry developments. The event allows colorists to renew friendships with colleagues, make new connections and communicate with manufacturers and industry leaders.
The online conference will be held on Zoom beginning at noon UTC-8 with new events speakers, panel events or presentations on the hour, followed by social events, games and breakout rooms where attendees can mingle. Presenters include Dolby, SGO and Asus, as well as working colorists and instructors from iColorist. Prizes and giveaways will be provided by event sponsors ASUS, FXPHD, AbelCine, Filmworkz, SGO, Dolby, Mixing Light, FSI Solutions, Portrait Displays, Red Giant and others.

CSI President Kevin Shaw says, “We feel that it is important that people still be able to come together this year, share their experiences with peers in the same boat, and end the year feeling supported. So, to end 2020 on a positive note, the Colorist Mixer is going ahead…with a unique twist. It will be our first 24-hour online mixer. Most of us end up in this industry because we love our craft, but with a workforce flung across the globe often in quite solitary roles, it’s important to find ways to stay connected and enthused.”
“By eliminating the need to travel, this year’s Mixer is available to everyone with no space limitations,” Shaw adds. “With events happening around the clock, it’s also accessible to professionals globally at a sensible time of day for people to connect.”
