Today, you can already tell if a film is an independent one. Indie film director Ryan Piers Williams stressed that color correction is an essential and a crucial part when making independent films. Color correction or color grading in cinematic post-production process is very important for indie directors like Williams, this is because adding colors define your film. Color adds a huge drive for mood and tone and connects with your audience.
