LONDON – “Best Picture” winner The King’s Speech went through final DI grading at post house Molinare. The film was graded using a FilmLight Baselight system and reunited DI colorist Gareth Spensley with director Tom Hooper. Hooper also won for “Best Director.” The two previously collaborated on
The Damned United.
The King’s Speech tells the story of the surprising ascent of George VI (played by Colin Firth, Oscar winner for “Best Actor”) to the English throne and his courageous effort to overcome an acute problem with stammering. Molinare was a co-producer of the film and provided virtually all of the picture post production services. The studio hosted the editorial team, produced the visual effects, performed DI grading and editorial finishing, recorded the final 35mm master, and produced all of the digital deliverables, including the digital cinema prints.
