“Portrait Displays and the Independent Colorists Guild Team Up to Promote the Professional Growth and Development of Colorists Worldwide
Pleasanton, CA, USA – Portrait Displays and the Independent Colorists Guild (ICG) have formed a new partnership to promote the professional growth and development of colorists worldwide.
The collaboration aims to develop promising joint activities, such as educational pursuits, that will produce long-term results and encourage professionals in the content creation industry.
Since its founding in 2017, ICG has become the largest international guild for professional colorists, including 450 members from 65 countries. The non-profit organization occupies a unique position in the colorist community, providing a space of respect among its specialists.
As professionals in the field of color correction, one of the most important tools for a colorist is a properly configured screen for color grading. ICG supports Portrait Displays’ market-leading calibration software, Calman, as it’s go-to solution when calibrating displays across the globe.
"We are confident that our partnership and collaboration will be an important milestone in the development of the video and film industry among professional colorists," said Alexander Prohorushkin, Founder and CEO of Independent Colorists Guild.
Portrait Displays is also pleased to be an event partner for the newly-launched Colorists Awards, the first international competition hosted by ICG and the Colorists Society International that focuses specifically on the craft of color and the work done by colorists in feature films, television, documentaries, commercials, music videos and short films. Entries are now being accepted until December 31, 2020, on the Colorist Awards website, and the awards winners will be announced in March, 2021.
"As friends and partners of ICG, we’re looking forward to pursuing new and exciting opportunities that will contribute to the overall well-being and development of the colorist community," Mark Ryals, Portrait Displays Director of Marketing, stated.
