About the Academy

Our passion for the possibilities of color grading and our will to educate and share our expertise with others were the founding principles of this academy.  
We believe film is a collaborative medium that profits from the exchange of knowledge and experience, all the way from set to screen. 

Our Vision

The look of a film or video does not merely dependent on the equipment used to record it, but also greatly hinges on what happens to it after the wrap. In the post-production process color grading is what can ultimately tie shots and scenes together into a harmonious piece. Our goal is to educate others in using the technology at hand to its full potential and to not only make the material look fine but as great as it possibly can.

Who we are

Cinematographer, colorist and color grading tutor Axel Rothe founded the Van Rothe Academy to share his comprehensive knowledge of the work and trade. On the basis of his well-tried color grading workshops, the Academy’s courses were developed to suit Berlin’s international clientele and the integration of additional tutors and topics in the future.
