Overwhelming response to FilmLight Colour Awards

Overwhelming response to FilmLight Colour Awards

Judging has begun, with a shortlist to be announced at the end of October and the winners revealed at EnergaCAMERIMAGE in November

The first-ever FilmLight Colour Awards has received an enthusiastic welcome from professionals across the imaging industry.

While the awards programme has been initiated by FilmLight, the awards are platform-agnostic and open to users of any grading system, from juniors to veterans, independents or those representing large global facilities.

“I have worked internationally with colourists for over 15 years and have always been fascinated by the different ways that they respond to a picture,” said Jacqueline Loran, Director at FilmLight. “They are an incredibly hard-working set of creative people. I could see that recognition of the craft was something the industry was perhaps lacking, and this was a sentiment shared by the rest of the team at FilmLight.”

“As testimony to this gut reaction, the response has been overwhelming: we are genuinely delighted it got off to such a successful start. We are heartened to see that entries came from around the world and from people with so many different skillsets.”

A global panel* of 17 industry luminaries, including cinematographers Bradford Young, Anthony Dod Mantle, Danny Cohen and Shanker Raman, along with senior colourists Peter Doyle, Simon Astbury and Anne Boyle, have embraced the initiative and started judging hundreds of creative projects.

Beatriz Pineda, Sr. Director, Non-Linear Distribution & New Technologies, HBO Latin America, commented: “As imaging technology leaps forward, we have also become more creative. Diversity of streaming platforms, higher standards for picture quality, new technologies for content processing and distribution... the possibilities for design and expression have expanded tremendously.

“In Latin America for instance, I've witnessed a boost in quality, talent, and creative ideas on set and in post. I'm sure it will show through in this competition.”

“It’s often hard to quantify what a good colourist brings to a project – that inscrutable ‘fairy dust’ that we sprinkle,” said colourist Jet Omoshebi. “It is nice to come out of the shadows and celebrate excellent talent with an award of our own.”

Cinematographer Eben Bolter, BSC, agreed. “I’m delighted to be joining a jury that will shine a light on colourists and celebrate their invaluable contribution to the art of cinematography. The DI allows us to reconvene and confront the reality of what happened on the shoot, making it the best visual story it can possibly be.”

The programme has also benefited from the support of the American Society of Cinematographers, Imago (the International Federation of Cinematographers) and CSI (Colorist Society International).

The jury is now evaluating all the entries, with a shortlist of three in each of the four categories to be announced at the end of October. The winners will be announced as part of the EnergaCAMERIMAGE 2021 event in mid-November. Recognising that people still struggle to travel, the awards presentation ceremony will be live streamed.

In closing, FilmLight’s Loran said, “I wish all our participants good luck. There are some truly excellent entries.”

DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film Posted: 21/10/2021
DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film: Oxyg and egrave;ne

When it came time to record the Netflix original French-language film, Oxygène (Oxygen in English), the audio team had quite the challenge in front of them. The premise of the scientific horror film focuses on a scientist, played by French Actress Melanie Laurent, who has lost her memory, awakens, trapped in a medical pod and must find her way out before the oxygen levels diminish. Given the setting, the pod is used for 90 percent of the film and, with its tight quarters, Production Sound Mixer Ken Yasumoto and Boom Operator Josselin Panchout knew they needed a reliable and unobtrusive microphone solution, which they found in DPA Microphones.
