Guy Spends a Year Learning How to Colorize Black and White Shows

This video hits close to home because I have a member of my family whose career is as a colorist for film and television.  Most people don’t know what a colorist does.  I’ll try and explain it in a nutshell.  A colorist is the reason there’s a fluidity of color from shot to shot.  They’re the reason a sky is more blue or grass being more green.  They’re the people behind movies like What Dreams May Come that produce amazing coloring and imagery.

So when I saw this video it made me realize not only the skill that goes into this job but how obsolete this job will be in a short period of time.  The video you are about to see was done at home by a guy who decided take a year learning out to turn black and white films into color.

The result is this 26 second clip of a scene from The Addams Family.  Not the featured film.  The show.   While I think he makes the cheeks a little too rosy and could have potentially spent a year doing something else, it’s pretty impressive.  Remember, he had to color this ENTIRE scene.  This is not easy to do.
