How about describing it as "designing the way the images on television 
look. By manipulating the color you can change the entire mood and 
feeling on a scene, like music does, and that's what you do".

I think it's quite easy to describe what you guys do, if you keep it 
simple like that.

You try explaining to little old Grandma that you fix a telecine. Now 
that's hard to describe! It's the engineers who have it hard here. My 
brother used to love telling people I fixed televisions for a living. Of 
course when he left school and got a job himself, as a plumber, I told 
people he dug holes for a living.
