Meet Colorist Juan Salvo

What does a colorist do?

How do they think?

Why do they make the decisions that they make?

These are just some of the questions that our new podcast series Colorist Profile covers.Let’s face it – there is a growing pool of information out there about how to push buttons and how to accomplish specific workflows. But there isn’t a ton of information about how an accomplished colorist thinks, what motivates them, and the things they think about when picture is on screen and there are clients in the room.

About MixingLight’s Colorist Profile Series

The Colorist Profile series will talk to colorists who work on all sorts of projects – narrative features, documentaries, commercials, music videos and corporate and political communication.  We’ll discuss how they got started, how they work with clients, what goes into developing looks, and what advice they’d give to aspiring colorists among a plethora of other subjects.

We’ll be rolling out a new RSS feed here on the blog for the series in the next couple of weeks so that you can subscribe to the Colorist Profile series, and of course let us know what you’d think would be interesting in this series.

About Juan Salvo

  1. Hey Dave – we’re in progress on getting our iTunes feed up and working out some problems we were having with our RSS feed on the blog. For now its only here on the site but we’ll hopefully have iTunes and a regular RSS feed working very shortly

  2. It was a great interview with a hell of a smart colourist (and lovely chap!)
    I was a little surprised that Juan mentioned nothing of his male model career? (for those of you need to know….I’m just kidding)
    I love these interviews, they are really inspiring.
