Using LUTs is not enough. Learn color grading!

The colors of your videos never come out as good as you want, even if you use the LUTs of your favorite video creators?

Well, LUTs are great and I use them a lot but they usually need a bit of tweaking to get your videos to look right.

That’s why there is no way around actually learning color grading. It allows you to color grade very quickly by using LUTs + making your own tweaks and it also makes it possible to come up with your own looks.

Yes, you can even develop your own LUTs, that perfectly match the footage and color profile of your camera(s). It’s much easier than you think!

In this course, I teach you everything you need to know to do so. You learn how digital color works and how you can manipulate it the way you want, how to read scopes, how to use common color grading tools, my whole color grading workflow and a lot more.

I even show you even faster and easier ways to color grade, using tools like Color Finale and FilmConvert Nitrate.


When I got serious about videography, I saw all the beautiful color-graded videos on YouTube and I wanted my videos to look the same.

But it was very hard. I constantly messed it up and spent hours color grading even short videos.

That was mostly the case because I didn’t know how to read scopes and use color grading tools properly. I also didn’t know how the additive color model (which is used on computer screens) works.

By learning all of that, I ended up spending a lot less time color grading, while my videos looked even better. So I’ve been where you’re right now and I’m sure I can help you to become a much better colorist quickly.

The Modules

#1 Studio & Monitor Setup

Our environment defines how our eyes perceive colors. That’s why it’s important to set up the room you color grade in properly and make adjustments to your screen to be able to color grade perfectly. Sounds complicated, but I make it easy for you 😉

#2 Color Grading Tools

In this part I show and explain all the color grading tools and scopes. So you know how everything works and what to do to manipulate color in a certain way.

#3 Understanding Digital Color

The color model used on your screen is called the additive color model. By understanding this model, you know better what’s going on in your scopes and how your tools affect colors. Again, it’s not as complicated as it sounds. So no worries xD

#4 How to Color Grade

In this module we come to the actual color grading process. I show you my workflow and also why it’s slightly different from traditional workflows. You’ll also learn how to create your own LUTs (you need either a photo editor like Photoshop/Affinity Photo or Color Finale for that) and I show you common color grading mistakes and how to avoid them.

#5 Additional Plugins

The plugins mentioned in this module (Color Finale & FilmConvert Nitrate) are not mandatory for color grading. But they can help you a lot to speed up your workflow and create certain looks. So here I go through those plugins and show you how I use them.

Your Instructor

Pascal is a world traveler and video creator, originally from Germany, currently based in Thailand.

When he started creating videos, it was quite hard as quality gear was very expensive or not existent.

Today the problem is no longer the gear, but finding the right one and learning how to use it properly. So he made it his mission to teach people how to create great looking videos with affordable cameras and gear.

Slide 1

I was heading away on a trip and wanted to do more video instead of photo and so like alot of people I jumped onto YouTube for some pointers. As is typical with YT you are inundated with creators of different levels and after going through some who were just “plugging” their page all the time, did not sound confident, who did not produce good results or who were just bad educators I lucked out and found Pascal.

After absorbing hours of his quality content I wanted to learn even more and so signed up to his “Learn With Pascal (Full Access)” course and I learnt so much.
The content was delivered in the same way as his YT video’s but with more details and I have learned ALOT.

Definitely worth every dollar and if you really want to get the most out of your gear and make great content you have to learn from Pascal.

P.S I love the accent and the accidental swearing, it really makes the lessons more enjoyable.

“I viewed several of Pascal’s YouTube videos and became instantly engaged in his content. I then registered in one of the courses on his learning platform and again became so informed that I had to enroll in his entire “Learn with Pascal”package. This is a must-have platform of training to have access to–stop missing out!!!”

“This is a very helpful course. Especially the modules for shooting transitions and video editing were very helpful to me. I didn’t realize before, that it can make sense to do panning in every clip you shoot because maybe you can use it later for transitions. It was also very helpful for me how to put clips together, that they fit perfectly together. Even small things with maybe the steps from a person who is walking. Also, the video on how to do speed ramping was very well explained! I had a lot of problems with speed ramping before. But now, I think I understand it better and I am able to use it in my next video.”

“My wife and I are dedicated to improving our skills and Pascal’s courses have filled some critical gaps in our training. His modules dig deep where necessary, but the content is fun and interesting, in addition to being super easy to follow. Where other courses just scratch the surface across a broad range of modules, Pascal has effectively separated each discipline into affordable individual collections that truly make you a better creator. The content is worth 25x the cost. Can’t wait to continue working our way through his library!”

“Learn with Pascal really helped take my videography game to the next level.
There are
a ton of techniques that I learned from the course that only come with years of experience which Pascal has accumulated and shared with us here. The course is easy to follow and full of tips and tricks that do help in real-life situations

“I would recommend this course to anyone that’s looking to improve their videography skills or even someone who’s a total beginner and wish to learn.”

“If you’ve learned something or got inspiration from my YouTube tutorials, I’m sure that my courses will greatly benefit you.

I know from experience that it feels hard to invest in educational products instead of new camera gear. But one big reason of my success is that I constantly try to learn something new.

So by signing up for this course, you invest in something much more important than camera gear, which is YOU!”
