With the enormous size and scope of Netflix series Avatar: The Last Airbender, Executive Producer/VFX Supervisor Jabbar Raisani and VFX Supervisor Marion Spates went to the series' colorist Siggy Ferstl of Company 3 to take on the work which normally would have had to go to a VFX vendor. Ferstl, who's always explored the outer reaches of DaVinci Resolve's expanding toolsets on shows like Lost in Space and Togo, took color grading to new levels, enabling the VFX supervisors to oversee and refine many VFX shots with the speed and interactivity of a color grading session.

Please Note: This session is available with an Exhibits Pass(All-Badge Access) - it does NOT require a Core Education Collection Pass.
