Veteran colorist Steve Scott joins Technicolor

HOLLYWOOD — Digital intermediate specialist Steve Scott has joined Technicolor’s team of digital colorists. Scott comes to the studio after a long tenure at Efilm. He will be based at Technicolor’s digital-hub in Hollywood.

“The DI suite has evolved into the final aperture of feature finishing,” says Scott. “With my background in visual effects, I’m keenly aware of the many amazing tools that we can incorporate from the compositing and CGI worlds into the DI.  I am very excited about the opportunity to do pioneering work with Technicolor to bring these worlds together, and to offer cinematographers more creative options and control than they’ve ever had before.”

Scott was the inaugural recipient of the Hollywood Post Alliance’s Award for “Outstanding Color Correction in a Feature Film DI” back in 2006 for his contribution to The Illusionist. In 2011 he won the HPA Judges Award for “Creativity & Innovation in Post Production”; and in 2011, the Award for “Outstanding Color Grading Feature Film in a DI Process” for his work on The Help. Scott won the HPA digital intermediate award in 2009 for his work on the feature Julie & Julia, as well as in 2007, for the feature Iron Man.   

Scott began his career as a classically trained painter and illustrator, and started in broadcast television as a digital compositor for Star Trek’s The Next Generation, and That 70s Show.  He made the jump to theatrical features at Digital Domain in 1993, as a digital compositor on director James Cameron’s True Lies. Scott followed on that success as the lead digital compositor on director Ron Howards’ Apollo 13.
