“The look of the show is very specific, and we’ve had fun working with the producers to achieve their vision,” the colorist explains. “Resolve makes it possible to stretch the limits on looks. I never have to say ‘no’ or ‘we can’t do that’ to the client.

“I’m always trying to come up with different looks for different times of day or flashbacks using lens blur effects, adding grain and sculpting lights,” Bochner adds. “There are 10 different ways to do everything, which opens up so many creative possibilities.”
