Could we please have a separate "Colorist Department"

The role of Colorist and related jobs such as color timer, conforming, finishing, versioning, HDR etc. really need to be in their own category. It can be very hard to find who did the grading and finishing on a project, colorists are scattered between editorial, visual effects and maybe some other departments at the moment. Also listing Colorists in editorial is very misleading and confuses people about the responsibilities of the colorists and associates. For a good description of possible colorist duties see https://coloristsociety.com/role-of-the-colorist
Thank you for your support

I completely agree on that. Having a Color Department section would help making things clearer and avoiding confusion.
Thanks Kevin!

Couldn’t agree more. IMDb listings are so importan, and currently colorist credits are so disorganized that it’s hard to see how many films a colorist has worked on.

Coloring / colorists perform a unique and vital role in the creative process.  It is a specialist role apart from the larger production personnel.  You may see any large number of various credits for a particular type artist, (VFX, modelers, production assistants, etc) at the end of a movie.  There's usually only one or two colorists....

That’s an interesting idea. I wouldn’t mind being in a separate department from editorial & VFX. I think a Finishing Department, in which the grade is a primary role, makes sense, though that may be confusing to the public because a lot of people might not know what Finishing is.

This is really must as color is big part of getting it ted together and leaving it out seems not very nice.

Yes, I completely agree to Kevin, to have a separate department to get recognition.

If camera, lighting and grips are seperated then it seems similar to have edit, vfx and D.I. finnishing to be seperated. D.I. Finnishing would include all involved in color grade and final online process. Dalies colorists and color scientist included too i assume.
