LOS ANGELES — Jeremy Sawyer is returning to Panavision’s Light Iron (www.lightiron.com) facility in Los Angeles as a senior colorist. He brings over 20 years of color finishing experience to his role, and previously worked at the studio from 2015 to 2018. While there, he contributed to projects that include I’m Dying Up Here,
Mr. Mercedes and
The Walking Dead.
“We are thrilled to have Jeremy back with us,” says Light Iron general manager Peter Cioni. “His vast experience managing innovative workflows in combination with his inspired visual instinct marries perfectly with our passion to serve the creative.”
“Light Iron fosters a collaborative, artistic environment,” notes Sawyer. “Their dexterity in response to constantly advancing technology and the relationship with Panavision offers an uncommon ability to bring post production to the set, where the intersection of art and science is happening. And being involved early on projects helps to produce an incredible end product. Panavision and Light Iron are at the forefront of making the entire production process smoother, faster, and more efficient, all with a nod toward the creative mindset.”
Light Iron colorists often integrate with projects during pre-production, working closely with cinematographers to fully understanding the motives for the creative choices being made.
“We think of ourselves as artistic partners in the process,” adds Cioni. “Not only can we build complex pipelines with custom tools and applications, but our colorists remain deeply embedded with the decision-making process, ensuring the intended look is carried throughout for maximum benefits to filmmakers.”
The company has multiple locations throughout North America, so Sawyer will be available to remotely collaborate with production teams on location via the Panavision and Light Iron network.
