Meet The Colourist: Park Jin-Ho, Cinemate, Korea

“I learned the colour grading language through Baselight, right from the beginning. It felt wonderful to sit and work on a grading panel in a DI room that was exactly the same as a theatre.

Meet The Colourist talks to Park Jin-Ho, Senior Colourist at Cinemate in Korea.

Park recently worked on the first Korean film ever to win a BAFTA award for best foreign language film, The Handmaiden.

Inspired by Sarah Waters’s 2002 novel, Fingersmith, The Handmaiden is a poisonous and feminist tale from director Chan-Wook Park. Having transposed to the 1930s colonial Korea and Japan, Park presents a gripping and sensual tale of a young Japanese lady living on a secluded estate, and a Korean woman who is hired to serve as her new handmaiden, but who is secretly involved in a con-man’s plot to defraud her of her large inheritance.

Behind the mood and the stunning colour of this movie is colourist Park Jin-Ho. After working on almost 200 films in the space of 14 years, Park experiments with colours like a painter who constantly pushes the boundaries of colour grading giving voice to his art.
