'Avatar' Colorist Skip Kimball Joins Technicolor (Exclusive)

Colorist Skip Kimball, whose credits include James Cameronís Avatar, will join Technicolor Creative Services in Hollywood next week.

He comes from Modern Videofilm, where he was senior colorist, working on movies ranging from Real Steel to Gone Baby Gone.

His work on Avatar is notable not only because it was the highest-grossing movie of all time but because of its unprecedented postproduction requirements.

There were 18 different delivery versions of Avatar created for the domestic market, plus an additional 92 for international markets, which were released in 47 languages.

In addition to the need for versions to accommodate various 2D, 3D, film and digital auditoriums, Cameron made the decision to create versions at different aspect ratios and light levels (3D projection and glasses can cut down the light that the viewer sees) in order to project the best possible images in each theater configuration.
Led by lead colorist Kimball, Modern VideoFilm completed 22 full color grades of Avatar for the different aspect ratios and light levels.
