Could we please have a separate "Colorist Department"

The role of Colorist and related jobs such as color timer, conforming, finishing, versioning, HDR etc. really need to be in their own category. It can be very hard to find who did the grading and finishing on a project, colorists are scattered between editorial, visual effects and maybe some other departments at the moment. Also listing Colorists in editorial is very misleading and confuses people about the responsibilities of the colorists and associates. For a good description of possible colorist duties see
Thank you for your support

Thank you, Kevin! I agree, it's time to settle this, because:
1- No, it doesn't come straight like this from the camera
2- It wasn't graded by the editor either
3- And now, the tasks are highly diversified...

isabelle barrière, your second comment triggered spam filter. Not sure why, though. Fished it out.
