Light Iron Hires Colorist Jeremy Sawyer, Expands Episodic Division


Hollywood-based post house Light Iron announced that it is expanding its episodic division with the addition of colorist Jeremy Sawyer and new infrastructure dedicated to television services.

Sawyer has an extensive track record in broadcast content. He has colored The Walking Dead, The Closer, South Park, Major Crimes, Limitless and The Affair.

“I’m so excited to join Light Iron,” said Sawyer. “I’ve always known the company to be at the forefront of post. This is a great opportunity to build an episodic team within Light Iron’s unique mindset and Panavision‘s legendary service.”

Sawyer’s upcoming projects at Light Iron include season six of The Walking Dead (AMC), season 1 of Live to Tell (History Channel) and season 1 of Greenleaf (OWN).

The physical expansion includes a second TV bay, a new online room and a dailies department for in-house, overnight dailies at Light Iron’s Los Angeles facility. A similar expansion is planned for the company’s New York facility in early 2016. In both cases, new hardware has been added specifically for television workflow, such as Ultra-HD and HDR monitors and dedicated SAN storage.

“We’ve never believed in a one-size fits all approach to post,” explained Light Iron president Michael Cioni. “Episodic content moves at a different pace and duration than features, and this expansion allows us to support our television clients as equally as we support our theatrical clients.”
