>I.M.H.O there is no such thing as a colorist who will do an entire workday for $150.00. There may be "somebody" who will sit down to change the look of the shots on this fellow's project at this price-point but it won't be a colorist. I suppose I can also find "somebody" to chisel the tumor out of my parietal lobe for $150.00 but it wont ba a brain surgeon.
