"Prior to the SGIA Color Management Boot Camp we had very limited knowledge and understanding of color management and the importance of verification. Thanks to the folks over at SGIA and Dan Reid we have been able to incorporate the fundamentals of color management to our workflow and create a new process for color verification which has helped reduce our overall damage rate for color related issues. The class was phenomenal and the instructor was excellent. It was very obvious that he has fun with color management and he instilled the excitement of it in everybody. 10/10 would definitely recommend to anybody seeking to better understand color."-- Mike Hinshaw, Game Time Wraps
