Personally I find Color Grading one of the most important aspects of Post Production. You can have beautiful shots and a perfect editing, if you don’t grade your footage properly some while be missing in you video. Color gives something extra and can be a story on it’s on. A perfect example for this is Sin City, where everything is Black and White except for one color in that scene. This will draw your attention to that color and emphasize the subject wearing it.
But it doesn’t always have to be that obvious, you can also very subtle in your grading. One of my favorite director is a master in subtle Color grading. He creates a dusty pastel looks and this makes his images timeless. He even goes so far, that he spends hours during post production to find the perfect color palette.
