21 June 2022

** In order to allow students more time to prepare materials, the application deadline will be extend to August 19, 2022.

 

Post-production plays a crucial role in filmmaking, it is where the editing of audio and visual materials begins. It involves a slew of processes, including editing, sound mixing, colour grading, and visual effects, to name a few. Have you ever been attracted by the way a film looked and felt rather than the story itself? That’s the magic of colour grading. While colour sets the mood for the movie, colour grading enhances the mood of narrative by making changes for aesthetic reasons. With the use of colour grading, audience can be quickly captivated, and an emotional and enduring response can be elicited.

 

With the support of Create Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Film Development Fund of the Hong Kong SAR Government, the Asian Film Awards Academy partners with Thai studio White Light Post to offer two three-month work placements at the studio’s colour grading department, and the positions are now open for application. The program aims to nurture young film talents and mid-career film professionals in Hong Kong through offering overseas training opportunities and short-term work placements. Participants can enhance their skills, develop professional relationships and exchange ideas with overseas film experts so as to reach the next level in their careers. The Asian Film Awards Academy will provide funding as specified in the application guidelines. Hong Kong Permanent Residents who can communicate fluently in English with professional full time post-production experience in relevant fields in film post-production are welcome to apply.

In our previous collaborations with the White Light Post, participants were given the opportunity to familiarise themselves with post-production equipment and get involved in tasks such as subtitle spotting and footage research. Participants were satisfied with the training program, where they found the program is useful for enhancing their knowledge in the field and broadening their scope about the industry.

 

White Light Post was founded in 2010, and is well equipped with an excellent team and mature competence. Their projects range from commercials and TV dramas to local and international short and feature films. Outstanding works include award-winning Pop Aye & Call Me By Your Name, and One for the Road directed by Nattawut Poonpiriya and produced by Wong Kar Wai, Leading Thai filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Memoria, and Edmund Yeo’s Moonlight Shadow.
