ABOUT THE ICA
The International Colorist Academy (ICA) was founded by colorists Kevin Shaw and Warren Eagles who have over 50 years of grading experience between them. They can also boast over 30 years of training and demo experience. Kevin and Warren work with freelance colorists to pool their valuable experience in grading features, commercials, DI, music, and drama projects to create hands-on colorist training courses.
ICA courses are typically small and personal, and all the instructors have years of experience to share. Books and videos are helpful resources but they can never replace first hand knowledge and someone to answer your questions. Classes are held regularly in Los Angeles, New York, London, Sydney, Singapore, and other major cities around the world. We also conduct customized classes on-site for post facilities, manufacturers, and industry organizations.
The ICA provides a range of courses geared towards colorists and post-production facilities. All courses are delivered by independent colorists located around the world and range from basic color theory, digital intermediate, and film workflows, to telecine and lab grading, client interaction, and looks and styles.
ICA courses cover a broad range of different manufacturers’ color grading systems and we offer many courses that are not system specific.
At the moment we work exclusively with Warren Eagles and Kevin Shaw.
Warren Eagles is a freelance colorist based in Australia. He has an extensive 25 year career with experience in all forms of color correction. Starting out as a photographers’ assistant in London’s West End straight from school, he knew from an early age that he wanted to be involved in a visual industry. Moved to top Soho post house Visions in 1987 where he started as a Colorist working on a mixture of long and short form projects. Warren started the Telecine department at Todd AO in 1994 combining closely with their new film lab. He then moved to SVC for a new challenge, grading high end TV commercials on the DaVinci 888, having previously been a Pandora Pogle user.
Kevin Shaw, CSI has been color grading for 30 years, lives in England, and works all over the world as a colorist, restoration specialist, technologist, consultant and instructor. Kevin is equally at home working on DI Feature productions, TV episodic programming and for three years headed up the BBC S&PP restoration team. Prior to the software revolution he was a renowned telecine colorist, and worked with every model of the hardware da Vinci color correction systems up to and including the 2kPlus with Toolbox. In those days he concentrated on high-end commercials.
