Meet The Colourist
Interview with Peter Doyle
Supervising Colourist, Technicolor, London
Peter Doyle is one of film industry’s most distinguished supervising digital colourists, having handled digital colour grading on the industry’s two largest franchises in movie history, The Lord of the Rings trilogy; and the last six Harry Potter films. He has also colour-graded eight of the 30 highest-grossing films of all time.
Peter has carried out remarkable handling of digital colour-grading for Academy Award-winning cinematographers and directors such as Andrew Lesnie and Bruno Delbonnel, Peter Jackson and Tim Burton to name but a few.
Meet The Colourist visits Peter at Technicolor to find out his views on the changing role of the colourist, and how he approaches multiple deliveries for today's huge variety of display formats.
Peter also discusses using colour spaces as a grading tool and, finally, archiving project assets alongside metadata to make sure they can be accessed now and in the future.

“The role of a colour grader is changing and it’s starting to morph to almost like a finishing artist. And that skillset is really being learnt as we go.”
