Post Facility Also Expands Footprint to Accommodate Growing Business
Light Iron, a
Panavision company, is excited to announce that award-winning colorist Scott
Klein is joining the company. As supervising colorist of numerous groundbreaking
episodic series, Klein joins a superior roster of Light Iron artists located in
both Los Angeles and New York who provide collaborative, creative expertise on feature
films, episodic series and music videos.
“While Light Iron was historically known for its
capabilities with feature films, we have developed an equally strong episodic
division, and Scott builds upon our ongoing commitment to providing the talent
and technology necessary for supporting all formats and distribution platforms,”
says General Manager Peter Cioni of Light Iron. “We are all aware of the
significant growth in original content, and Light Iron is focused on expanding its
operation to support the needs of clients. Hiring star talent like Scott is a
logical step in our continued efforts to expand our industry-leading roster.”
Over the past four decades, Klein has accrued a remarkable list
of credits, including Fox’s “Empire,” HBO’s “Deadwood: The Movie,” and Showtime’s
“Ray Donovan.” He collaborated on the award-winning series “Bosch,” “True
Blood,” “The Affair,” “Halt and Catch Fire,” “Entourage,” and “The Sopranos.”
Klein is already a familiar face to many filmmakers who regularly turn to Panavision
for its innovative production expertise, optimized camera systems, and
unparalleled optics. Klein is also an associate member of the American Society
of Cinematographers (ASC).
“I really enjoy the artistic collaboration with filmmakers,”
Klein says. “It is great to be part of a facility with such a pure passion for
supporting the creative through technology. Colorists need strong technology that
serves as a means to best express the feelings being conveyed in the images and
further enhance the moods that draw audiences into a story.
“Light Iron’s association with Panavision further augments
the supportive culture – there is amazing fusion between the two companies,” he
adds. “It’s an exciting time to join the company as it continues to grow.”
Also joining Klein are his colleagues and fellow colorists
Daniel Yang, Jesús Borrego, and Ara Thomassian. They join Light Iron after
three years together at Warner Bros. and 11 years at Technicolor.
The robust roster of bi-coastal Light Iron colorists includes
Ian Vertovec, Steven Bodner, Corinne Bogdanowicz, Jeremy Sawyer, Sean Dunckley
and Nicholas Hasson, among others. At Light Iron, colorists contribute to
projects early in pre-production and closely collaborate with filmmakers to
fully understand the creative intentions being conveyed and to be a resource
from capture to finish.
In addition to growing its team of artists to support the
expanding market and client needs, Light Iron has also expanded its physical
footprint with a second Hollywood-based location a short distance from its flagship
facility. A full breadth of creative finishing services for feature films and
episodic series is available at both locations. Light Iron also has locations
in Atlanta, Albuquerque, Chicago and New Orleans.
