International Colorist Academy (ICA) continues to expand with the addition of a new instructor. Dado Valentic joins the ICA team as an instructor for Digital Camera Workflows & Grading. Dado is a highly experienced stereoscopic 3D colourist, based in the UK, and recently graded the BAFTA award winning “Flying with Monsters.” Dado’s ICA courses cover all aspects of stereoscopic post production and are beneficial to editors, digital image technologies, as well as colorists.

ICA provides a wide variety of training courses on colorist strategies, popular looks, monitor calibration, as well as a broad range of system-specific grading workshops. All ICA instructors are working professionals with extensive hands on experience in the industry. In 2010, the ICA delivered 50 classes in 10 countries. Hundreds of colorists have gained valuable knowledge and ICA certificates to improve their core competencies and gain a competitive edge. “Dado has an exceptional degree of skill and his knowledge makes him a strong addition to our team.
