NEW YORK — Panavision’s Light Iron company is growing its episodic division with the addition of supervising colorist Steven Bodner, who is based in the studio’s New York facility. The expansion follows the recent addition of supervising episodic colorist Jeremy Sawyer, who operates out of Light Iron’s Los Angeles headquarters.
Bodner has an extensive track record coloring broadcast content such as Girls, Blue Bloods, Treme, and True Detective. He also colored the Martin Scorsese-produced HBO series Vinyl, which was supported by Panavision New York. In addition, Bodner has colored numerous feature films during his career, including Beasts of No Nation.
“Expanding our episodic reach to cover both coasts is a natural progression for Light Iron,” says Michael Cioni, the company’s president. “Episodic clients have responded incredibly well to the end-to-end service platform offered by Panavision and Light Iron, and we want to continue that trend in New York. Steve is the perfect fit to help us achieve that.”
“I’m enjoying building an episodic department while being at the forefront of UHD and HDR content development, and consulting on color during camera tests at Panavision,” adds Bodner. “We really can offer clients unmatched services from production through post.”
Bodner joins colorist Sean Dunckley, who heads up Light Iron’s feature color department in New York.
