Presenting the outstanding colour and talent behind the best movies from Camerimage 2020
In this exclusive discussion, FilmLight interviews the colourists behind some of the biggest hits of the 2020 Camerimage International Film Festival.
We introduce you to five films graded on Baselight in this year’s festival line-up, including the winner of the Golden Frog itself (Nomadland) as well as the winner of the Silver Frog (Helene).
You’ll hear about real-world interaction between colourists, directors and cinematographers, how the colour of these outstanding features was shaped, and their creative insights. At the end, you’ll also get a chance to ask any questions that you may have for our guests.
