If you work in commercials, corporate video, feature films or themed attraction entertainment, you will want to listen in!

Managing a studio with several editors involves a challenging workflow, including edit sharing, networking and remote collaboration. Oliver has answers!

If you’ve ever shot a scene with multiple types of cameras, you’ve faced a very specific problem: How do you get the colors to match from the different cameras?

At worst, color inconsistencies can become super distracting. For many, color matching simply makes everything look the same. Yet, if you’re a post-production legend like Oliver Peters, you take coloring of multi-camera shoots to the level of its own art form.

One look at his reel and you’ll immediately want to find out how Oliver makes everything looks so amazing.

Get ready for a veritable post-production master class, as OWC Radio host Cirina Catania gets into the details of making editing magic.

This is Cirina Catania with OWC Radio, and I have Oliver Peters on the line. Oliver is one of these quiet, strong, intelligent, very humble, incredibly talented people who work in so many different areas of what I call the entertainment industry. Oliver, you are an editor, you're an amazing colorist, you're a post-production workflow consultant, you run an operation with several editors working with you at any one point in time. I even noticed you had done still photography, which is beautiful. We all know you're an incredibly creative writer, both in the tech and the creative side, and I guess I would also call you although I don't know if you've used this term or not, you're definitely an industry analyst because it's such broad-based knowledge. So I'm excited and welcome to the show.

Well, thank you for the big build-up there. Thank you very much.

It's just wonderful because I know we haven't prepared this. I can pretty much ask you just about any question...
