About

Nick Shaw has been working in post-production, in the UK and internationally, for over 25 years.

Having studied electronic engineering he then worked as an editor, first in tape-based suites, and then on a range of non-linear systems. With the advent of digital cinema cameras, it became apparent that a host of new challenges had arisen, and that there was a need for people with an in depth understanding of image pipelines. With his sound technical background, and experience of post, Nick was ideally placed to cut through the jargon, and help people get the best out of the new technology.

He has served as a technical book reviewer, and has written articles and manuals, and produced training videos on a range of subjects related to digital cinema.

He is a member of one of the AMPAS ACES Technical Advisory Committees, a mentor on ACES Central, and is also a contributor to the open-source Colour Science for Python project.
