Along with your work on the smash hit reboot of Heartbreak High, you’ve also been a colourist on Del Kathryn Barton’s film Blaze. Can you tell us what a colourist does?
“A colourist’s role is to design the look and feel for feature films, television series, commercials, and music videos. You work closely with the director and director of photography to establish a tone that best serves the narrative and/or conveys a particular feeling.
“We have many tools that allow us to not only adjust luminance, saturation and contrast but also shape the light and isolate individual colours, objects, or subjects to craft a shot.
