  3. Light Iron, a Panavision company specializing in post production services, is again playing an important collaborative role with notable episodic series this season. Customized workflow offerings from Light Iron for BETTER THINGS, THE GOOD FIGHT, THE OA, RAMY, SHRILL, THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL, and WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, included dailies, digital intermediate, archive, and data services, among other creative and technical contributions. From San Francisco and Los Angeles to New York and Toronto, Light Iron serviced the productions from a range of locations with color and front-end teams involved from pre-production for a smooth and efficient experience. “We are honored to support these outstanding projects,” says Peter Cioni, Light Iron’s General Manager. “Our unique understanding of the demands of episodic schedules coupled with our technical skills in file-based workflows fuels our ability to fulfill the creative vision on time and on budget. Light Iron at its core is focused on innovation and, as part of the Panavision family, we offer our expertise from pre-production through finishing, creating efficiencies throughout the imaging chain.” A closer look at the projects demonstrates the possibilities for end-to-end solutions from Light Iron and Panavision: • BETTER THINGS, season 3 (FX) – Already renewed for a fourth season, BETTER THINGS follows the trials and tribulations of Sam Fox (Pamela Adlon), a single mother and working actor with no filter, raising her three daughters in Los Angeles. The season was shot by Paul Koestner who collaborated with Light Iron’s dailies colorist Gregory Pastore and DI colorist Corinne Bogdanowicz. Panavision Hollywood provided the camera and lens package. • THE GOOD FIGHT, season 3 (CBS All Access) – Entertainment Weekly hails the third installment of THE GOOD FIGHT as “the best show on TV.” Shot by Fred Murphy, ASC, this season was supported by Light Iron with dailies by Andrew Hodgdon and final color from Steven Bodner. The production is also serviced by Panavision New York. • THE OA, season 2 (Netflix) – The first season of THE OA quickly developed a cult fan base. For the highly anticipated second installment, Light Iron worked closely with series DPs Steven Meizler and Magnus Nordenhof Jønck to ensure the work done by dailies colorists Andrew Hodgdon and George Thomas was reflected in the final color grade with Ian Vertovec. Services included location support in San Francisco and Los Angeles. • RAMY, season 1 (Hulu) – Winner of the 2019 SXSW Audience Award, RAMY stars actor-director-comedian Ramy Youssef as the son of Egyptian immigrants in New Jersey. Light Iron worked closely with cinematographers Adrian Peng Correia and Ashley Connor to establish the look in dailies, which transferred seamlessly into the DI where the final color grade was performed by Steve Bodner. Cameras and optics were supplied by Panavision New York. • SHRILL, season 1 (Hulu) – From executive producers Lorne Michaels and Elizabeth Banks and showrunner Ali Rushfield, SHRILL stars Aidy Bryant (from SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE) as Annie, an overweight young woman who wants to change her life — but not her body. Based on the 2016 memoir by Lindy West, Vox calls the series “a quietly tender portrayal of learning how to love yourself.” Light Iron colorist Nick Lareau provided the final color grade in collaboration with cinematographer Joe Meade. • THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL, season 2 (Amazon) – Light Iron worked alongside cinematographers M. David Mullen, ASC and Eric Moynier, returning for the second season of this award-winning series created by Amy Sherman-Palladino. Light Iron’s Aaron Burns handled dailies color and Steve Bodner collaborated with the two DPs during finishing. For camera and lens options, Panavision New York was the go-to resource. • WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, season 1 (FX) – Based on the feature film of the same name, WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS is a documentary-style look into the lives of four vampires who have “existed” together for hundreds of years on Staten Island. The film’s cinematographer D.J. Stipsen returned for the series, which has earned a 96% rating from Tomatometer critics on Rotten Tomatoes. Christian Sprenger lensed the pilot. Light Iron dailies colorists Gregory Pastore and Jacob Doforno supported early look development in Toronto via the local Panavision facility, which carried over into finishing in the DI by Ian Vertovec.

Robert Richardson, ASC will receive the ASC Lifetime Achievement Award, and Jeff Jur, ASC will be bestowed the org’s Career Achievement in Television Award. The presentations will be made at the annual ASC Awards gala on February 9, 2019, at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland. The event will also pay tribute to the society’s centennial in 2019. ASC President Kees van Oostrum notes, “Celebrating the accomplishments of exceptionally talented cinematographers like Bob Richardson for his innovative approach to feature films, and Jeff Jur for his brilliant interpretations in the world of television drama, is especially important in today’s day and age of cinematography. As we celebrate our 100th anniversary, I cannot imagine better role models, as both have inspired us, and their work continues to embolden the next generation of cinematographers.” Richardson’s extensive career has spanned nearly four decades and counting. Along the way, he has garnered three Academy Awards® for his cinematography on Hugo (2012), The Aviator (2005), and JFK (1992), in addition to six Oscar® nominations (The Hateful Eight, Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds, Snow Falling on Cedars, Born on the Fourth of July, Platoon) and four BAFTAs (Hugo, Inglourious Basterds, The Aviator, Platoon).

His most recent film is A Private War, in select theaters now, with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood slated for release next year. Richardson began shooting documentaries in the 1980s. His photography on Crossfire for an English TV station caught the eye of Stone, who enlisted Richardson for Salvador. That led to Platoon, and the beginning of a prolific credit list that includes Wall Street, The Doors, A Few Good Men, Natural Born Killers, Casino, Nixon, The Horse Whisperer, both Kill Bill movies, The Good Shepherd, Eat Pray Love, and Live by Night, among others. Born in Massachusetts, Richardson fell in love with movies and studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, before advancing to the American Film Institute in the late 1970s. He apprenticed with such legendary cinematographers as Sven Nykvist, ASC, FSF and Nestor Almendros, ASC, and continues to amass feature and documentary credits, demonstrating amazing artistry in everything he shoots. Jur has received numerous accolades for his wide range of television credits. He collected Emmy® Awards for his artistry on HBO’s Carnivale (2004) and for HBO’s Bessie (2016), in addition to another nomination for Carnivale in 2005. Jur’s work has also been recognized by the ASC, having won Outstanding Achievement Awards for the Showtime movie Last Call (2003) and Carnivale (2004), and earning nominations for Carnivale (2006), ABC’s Flashforward (2010), and Bessie. Jur studied film at Columbia College in Chicago. After school, he stayed in Chicago, where he was a gaffer and assistant cameraman on commercials, industrial films and documentaries. He photographed a number of American Playhouse telefilms, including Any Friend of Nicholas Nickleby Is a Friend of Mine from 1980 to 1984. In between TV projects, he went on to shoot feature films, such as Dirty Dancing, The Big Picture, The Last Seduction, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Panic, Joy Ride, and My Big Fat Greek Wedding, among others. Jur’s prolific resume includes episodes of the series Invasion (ABC), Dirty Sexy Money (ABC), Perception (TNT), Dexter (Showtime), Resurrection (ABC), Halt & Catch Fire (AMC), Colony (USA), The Catch (ABC), Westworld (HBO), Lodge 49 (AMC), and How to Get Away With Murder (ABC).

  15. Hello. My name is George Skoumas Papanikolaou and I am a 25 years old director. I just made my first movie called "The Designer", a no budget film using only a Canon 550D and a kit lense 18-135 EFS and also a goPro Camera. It's an action short film with car races and a dramatic impact on the end of the film. No professional or amateur actors. Just friends. No script ever written. All in my head. Direction/Editing/Sound Editing/Trailer VoiceOver/Visual Effects all by one person. The music was written by a friend and it's also a home production using orchestral music. It took us a lot of time and a lot of struggle to manage this final result. The movie was started as a small trailer and ended as a middle length 32 minute film. We also won two awards in the Accolade Competition in California. This is my first post in this forum and I am very excited to be here with people that we all share our same passion. Right now I want to start new projects and ideas. I have 2 scripts in my mind and looking for people to cooperate with and shoot something the way it should be. Let's say that this movie was my personal university in filmmaking. It showed me the ways. I now start to walk them. Please come with me. This is the movie trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVoo8MVE3R0 Please WATCH the whole movie here: www.thedesignermovie.com/watch.php You can see information about the movie right here: www.thedesignermovie.com My personal portfolio can be found at www.skoumas.net
