Colour correction and grading is an essential part of the post-production pipeline-its purposes include improving the visual continuity from clip to clip, better communicating moods, emphasizing specific elements of the clip, etc.

Your introduction to colour theory will enable you to consider the different roles of primary, secondary, and tertiary colours and more as we look at examples of how these are used in both art and film. 

Learning the basics of the history of colour correction for film – and its use in video – will enable you both to better understand the science and technology of video colour as well as how you can use this knowledge to create more visually engaging videos and films.
