    Eric Whipp joins me on this episode of the podcast. 
    For over 3 decades, Eric has worked as a colorist on notable films and commercials. He worked on the 2007 Academy Award-winning "Happy Feet" but most would easily recognize him for his work on "Mad Max; Fury Road". Currently, he is a Senior Colorist at Alter Ego, Toronto.

    Colorist Society Hollywood: Michael Mintz

    Michael Mintz joins me on this episode of the podcast. 
    For over 28 years, Michael has worked as a colorist at notable post facilities like Post Group, Tunnel Post, New Hat, and Walt Disney Animation Studios. Currently, he is a Senior Colorist at Margarita Mix in Hollywood. 
    The focus of this episode is decidedly “tech free.” We discuss the ins and outs of working with clients, what it takes to run a supervised session, and how to land new work. There are tons of articles and tutorials covering workflow, software, and color science, but we rarely talk about our relationship to clients.

    Colorist Society Hollywood: Mark Todd Osborne

    In this episode, I talk with Senior Colorist, Mark Todd Osborne. Mark is known for coloring feature films like Need for Speed, Silk Road, and It Follows. But, in addition to those movies, Mark has graded a wide range of documentary subjects from Phil Spector to Sesame Street.
    Documentaries can have specific challenges for a colorist. Recreations and stock footage need to fit into the story, and some docs even use a look to set the time and mood. And there can be a debate over whether to restore footage, versus keeping it as authentic as possible.

    Colorist Society Hollywood: Sheri Eisenberg

    On this episode of the Colorist Society Podcast, I chat with Sheri Eisenberg, Senior Colorist at Warner Brothers. Sheri’s focus is on restoration, and has helped bring some of the biggest classic films into the 21st century. Her work includes restorations of Rosemary’s Baby, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Taxi Driver, and Casablanca. As she explains, there’s a lot that goes into a restoration from dealing with multiple unmatched sources, how older films fit into an UHD/HDR world, and understanding the viewer’s and filmmaker’s original expectations of a film.

    Colorist Society Hollywood: Billy Hobson

    Billy Hobson, Senior Colorist at Harbor, joins me on this episode of the Colorist Society Podcast. His most recent color work includes Randall Park’s “Shortcomings” which premiered at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, CBS's FBI, FBI: Most Wanted, and FBI: International, as well as the critically acclaimed Peanut Butter Falcon and Disney’s Lady and the Tramp.
    I first met Billy at a Filmlight event where he explained his workflow with printer lights in Baselight. His mentor, Yvan Lucas, helped guide him towards this technique. I always thought it would make a fantastic subject for a podcast, so we caught up via zoom to record it.

    In this episode of the Colorist Society Podcast, I talk with Senior Colorist of Picture Shop, Doug Delaney. Doug is known for his impressive list of film credits like Captain Marvel, Jumanji (2017), Concussion, and The Equalizer. With the quality of streaming becoming more demanding, his talents are now utilized on the Netflix series Dahmer and Love, Death, and Robots. We discuss how the lines between TV and movies are becoming blurred, the challenges of VFX heavy series, and how to know when you’ve pushed a grade too far.
