Well, an other IBC done! More than technological developments and innovations, this year will definitely be marked by a major development in sharing and collaboration, for both software tools and working relationships. Remote & collaborative work keep growing, extending the limits to international contributions, while reducing time with parallel and real time participations. Concomitantly, following technical evolution and market trends new corporatist communities congregate online. Then people meet and join forces to exchange expertise and ideas, develop their networks, possibly work together and ultimately unite to improve their professional status; that's what the Colorist Mixer and Colorist Society International - CSI - are all about for colorists, editor/colorists, DIT's, telecine operators, color timers, finishers, restoration artists and color scientists.

This 3rd European Colorist Mixer was held in the well-named Felix Meritis, an imposing XVIIIth century building downtown Amsterdam, that could gather this growing community. This year Jim Wicks came to introduce Colorist Society International to the audience. Warren Eagles, Dado Valentic, Dan Moran, Simon Walker, and Guy Molin between others, as CSI members but also International Colorist Academy or Mixing Light instructors, were widely involved, not only by spreading the word but also in the event itself. Beside the networking part, as last year, a quizz and a raffle were organized - lots of prizes were offered by the sponsors, most of them being present -, in a playful atmosphere which definitely makes this social gathering a place to go when color is your business.
