My Journey with ACES started way back in 2013 with the movie Nautanki Sala, Shot by Manoj Lobo, Directed by Rohan Sippy. 

It was probably the first film executed using ACES color space in India.

Sonali Cabel, Shoot Out at Wadala, Youngistaan, Mastizaade, Sultan are some films to name a few…. 


Main reason for moving on to ACES color science provided some advantages in having extended ranges of colours, it also allows to have multiple camera’s colors mapped onto a unified colour space., e.g. Arri and Sony have their own colour science, when you move to ACES their color mapping is done to one unified colour space and that is the most helpful thing when working with Multiple Cameras, SULTAN was a perfect example of that.

ACES gives more flexibility when working with multiple cameras, due to their DRT's we can map our color grading to various displays, even for HDR. This effectively makes easy transformation of colour correction from one medium to another. Integrating with Vfx also helps a lot for easy communication and handling of files.  

Today ACES has become an ever popular colour space to work with, there are various aspects of ACES to be aware of. I would like to share some of the videos and documents, links associated with ACES from the academy. This should clear many myths and doubts of how ACES can be used effectively in Cinematography, VFX, Color Correction, Archiving, Delivery Platforms etc...
