On this episode of the Colorist Podcast, I talk with Peter Doyle, Senior Colorist at Technicolor London.

Peter has worked on some of the most popular films of all time like the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Harry Potter films, and The Matrix. He has collaborated with major directors, Tim Burton, The Coen Brothers, and The Wachowski Siblings. 

Peter helped pioneer the digital intermediate process we use today, working with a groundbreaking software package then known as “Colossus.” This would later evolve into Autodesk Lustre, and is used on many big budget films today.

The look of his projects can be vastly different. From the hyper saturated look of Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, to the bleak and faded style of Inside Llewyn Davis, Peter is constantly pushing the boundaries of color grading.

On the podcast, we talk about:

  • Making the transition from visual effects to color
  • How directors and DPs have shaped the way that he grades
  • Grading a film “wrong” before it can achieve the right look
  • Working on films from completely opposite genres
  • Pushing the creative and technical limits of color
  • Making color work look invisible
  • Different challenges of working in broadcast television
  • Using Baselight for color grading
  • Advantages of knowing the technical background of color science
  • Using a keyboard instead of a grading panel
  • How ACES works in his grading pipeline
  • HDR and how it can be used effectively to enhance the story
