Lou Levinson Named Fellow of Colorist Society International

Prominent colorist Lou Levinson, who has worked with the world’s top film directors and cinematographers, has been named a fellow of the Colorist Society International (CSI).

Over his long career Levinson has held senior positions at such companies as MCA, Technicolor, and, currently, Apple. He has collaborated with Steven Speilberg and his go-to DP Janusz Kaminski, and has helped craft the look of such films as “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial,” “Empire of the Sun,” “Batman,” and “Batman Returns.”

“The colorist is a person whose primary responsibility is to help creative authors of visual storytelling in all its forms further that storytelling with the ‘look,’” Levinson said. “This means dealing with color, density, texture, composition, and motion issues as prime involvement. Helping the industry recognize the value of the colorist is why I support CSI’s mission statement.”

Colorist Society International (also known as CSI) is the first organization devoted exclusively to furthering and honoring the professional achievements of the colorist community. It was founded by colorists Jim Wicks and Kevin Shaw to advance the craft, education, and public awareness of the art and science of color grading and color correction.

A CSI Fellow is an honorary position within the Colorist Society International. It is given for distinguished service to the art and craft of color in motion pictures and television.

Levinson is an associate member of the American Society of Cinematographers.
