SGO strengthens its commitment to the color creative community by becoming an official sponsor of International Colorist Academy

Published On: July 22nd, 2020

SGO has become an official and active sponsor of ICA (International Colorist Academy), the globally renowned color grading training institution. “We are delighted to support the ICA and their endeavours to share color-grading knowledge and expertise, equipping colorists at all levels with the skills and techniques required in today’s very demanding industry,” shared Geoff Mills, Managing Director at SGO. “With so many more creatives adopting Mistika Boutique as their system of choice it is essential for SGO to actively support the very best color training platforms by providing existing and new Mistika users with relevant and high-quality learning courses”.

“Mistika is the color tool that ticks all the boxes. The new flexible license options and the integration of BMD DeckLink and AJA T-TAP cards has made it much easier to integrate into our class line up. I am looking forward to working with Francisco as our new ICA trainer,” said Warren Eagles, co-founder of the ICA.
