The collaboration between Sony and Technicolor to develop custom looks for VENICE was a natural fit since the post house worked closely with Sony on the first production made on the camera in 2017 (“The Dig”, Dir: Joseph Kosinski, DP: Claudio Miranda, ASC). Esteemed colorists from Technicolor’s impressive talent roster who contributed to this initiative include:

**Sparkle is the name that colorist Steven P. Arkle has been using for much of his thirty-year career at Technicolor.


Colorist Jason Fabbro:

“The idea behind the Technicolor looks is that they were developed to be able to overlay on different exposures and color temperatures. The intention is for the looks to look good over a lot of different footage. They’re a good starting point and if they work out of the box for some people, great, but you can also expand on them to make them specific to your project.”
