Simon Astbury Joins the Jury of FilmLight Colour Awards
FilmLight recently launched a new event honouring colourists and the art of colour worldwide, with winners due to be celebrated at EnergaCAMERIMAGE 2021 in Poland. The programme has met with spontaneous acclaim. Colourists, renowned cinematographers and directors, and other professionals from the imaging industry across the globe, all support the initiative.
Simon Astbury is not only the managing director at Juice Shanghai but also a talented grading artist, who has witnessed first-hand the changes in the industry over the last 25 years.
“Colourists have long toiled in the gloom, bringing their unique brand of magic to film and TV screens in relative anonymity. I’m hugely looking forward to being a member of the jury for these awards, bringing colourists and their amazing work blinking into the daylight.” says Simon.
While FilmLight is sponsoring and organising the Colour Awards 2021, users of any grading technology are welcome to enter, as are colourists from the largest post facilities to home set-ups. The only criterion for success is that the technology should be used to create visually stimulating and satisfying imagery. Colourists or their sponsors still have time to enter the awards at filmlight.awardcore.com. Nominations will close on 15 September, with a shortlist announced in October and the winners revealed in November.
The judging and awards are being organised with the co-operation of the ASC (American Society of Cinematographers), Imago (the International Federations of Cinematographers), and CSI (Colourist Society International).
