ARRI offers a wide range of workflows for managing color including in-camera, off-camera, during post production and even live-grading on set.

Lots of great info presented in a very technical and clear way, but with some humor and great examples so it was actually entertaining as well!
Alex Garcia
Fantastic course, I've been wanting to get into the Arri ecosystem for a while now. The classes gave me everything needed to start the process correctly. Happy that there is now a digital course for the Arri Training as it has been rather difficult to go to location based courses.

Good overview of Arri cameras.
Trent Posey
Really good idea, congratulations Arri. I follow with interest these topics that help me to equalize the knowledge. I watch it with multitasking windows on my monitor during the editing of images so hours are pleasant listening to the beautiful voice of this senior trainer. PS. The clock in the background is also useful!

The course is very comprehensive. I really like the attitude and the atmosphere of how it is presented. I have learned many things about ARRI cameras and the possibilities that you have, or can have in any project. I really appreciated the depth of explanation in every module. Thank you and I hope that you will continue providing us with more knowledge in the future.

A very comprehensive course about all the Arri universe, lot of technical of course but also tricks and tips that can help any cinematographer even with non Arri Cameras.
Julien Gouz
Great course. A lot of information very nerdy which is a good thing for me. But I just feel like there is something missing I just wanted to see the camera operated more and used in a location to see what is happening in the real world otherwise I totally recommend this course for everyone. Great job and thank you for creating such an amazing content.
