Many Flaat users are emailing me for advice about how to color grade their footage. It's not a strong point of mine. Actually, one of the reasons I created Flaat was that I was just unable to get nice skin tones out of footage shot with Canon's Neutral, or Marvels Cine. So I always send them the same set of links to some truly awesome posts by my color guru, Stu Maschwitz (@5tu). Everything else in his blog (prolost) is worth a read, but these are the most relevant bits for someone who wants to learn about color in movies.

Thanks a lot, Stu, I learned a lot reading you.
