Post-production Technician

Luis's job title is Final Colourist at Digital Orchard

What I do

I work as a colourist in post-production, helping cinematographers and directors create the visual look for their films. It’s a mix of arts and technical work.

How I became a technician

A typical day in my
working life

Every day is different. I start by meeting with the Director and identifying what software and hardware we need for that day. As a colourist, this can often involve using high-end calibrated monitors or a colour panel to tweak and change how an image looks. A full day on set can be 14 – 16 hours, but in post-production, it is usually nine to five.

The most exciting thing I've achieved
so far in my job

I enjoyed doing specialised technician work with high-speed cameras. These cameras can be used for slow-motion and high-speed scenes and capture around 2000-3000 frames per second. One of the most memorable experiences was shooting a multi-camera day with a big explosion for an advert. Although it was very technical, as you had to ensure all the cameras were running at the same time, it was a lot of fun!
