Technicolor taps Potter, ‘Rings’ vet

Lab and post giant hires Peter Doyle

In a move Technicolor says signals a strategic shift in the way it handles color grading and dailies, the lab and post giant has hired digital intermediate colorist Peter Doyle.

Doyle’s credits include the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, the final six Harry Potter pics, and several films for Tim Burton. He is already at work on his first show for Technicolor: Burton’s “Dark Shadows,” shooting at Pinewood Studios in Blighty.

Technicolor Creative Services prexy Claude Gagnon told Variety, “We’re going to be more and more involved upstream in the process of doing color correction, meaning during dailies.” Doyle likes to be involved in color grading from dailies onward. Technicolor will encourage all its colorists to get involved that early, and Doyle will help oversee that transition.

Doyle explained, “What I like to do is work with the director and d.p. and basically design looks. That can have an enormous influence on the way a d.p. goes about shooting a film down to some technical issues, like how do they actually expose the neg, lighting ratios and so forth. Building that look as part of the production process, where you’re working with the d.p. and the conceptual drawings and the costume design and the production design, adds, I think, an enormous amount.”
