As one of the first OmniScope beta testers, the Time in Pixels team were thrilled to have an in-depth chat with Joey in this two part series of interviews:

In part one, Joey demonstrates how and why he uses OmniScope - including some very useful tips on using the QC and Timeline tools for blanking detection.

OmniScope just keeps getting better! It's fun to see the software evolve so quickly and then integrate new features into  my workflow. For example, the Timeline feature came out of nowhere for me… and now it's an essential tool. Tom is just exceptional at listening to the users and improving the product.

Part two is an in-depth interview discussing a career in color, working with clients, and keeping up on the latest technologies. It's an engaging watch for colorists or anyone interested in post-production.

One of the things that has helped me is to try and embrace new technologies. Even if a project does not require an advanced format like HDR or Dolby Vision, I’ll sometimes regrade select projects on my own time in these formats – just for the experience.  When it comes to evolving, you’ve got to experiment and try new things… you’ve got to fail and then start over to keep improving.
