EFILM’s Natasha Leonnet Colors Blue Sky Studios’ “Spies In Disguise”

"The aesthetic of this film introduces a style unlike previous Blue Sky films; the color palette is used this time to strongly differentiate between good and dangerous characters."

“Spies in Disguise” from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky …follows super spy Lance Sterling (Will Smith) and scientist Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) are almost exact opposites. Lance is smooth, suave and debonair. Walter is…not. But when events take an unexpected turn, this unlikely duo is forced to team up for the ultimate mission that will require an almost impossible disguise – transforming Lance into the brave, fierce, majestic…pigeon. Walter and Lance suddenly have to work as a team, or the whole world is in peril. The animated comedy marks over ten collaborations for EFILM Senior Colorist Natasha Leonnet with Blue Sky Studios, having previously handled the color finishing for Oscar®-nominated “Ferdinand,” “Ice Age: Continental Drift,” and “Ice Age: Collision Course.”

“The aesthetic of this film introduces a style unlike previous Blue Sky films; the color palette is used this time to strongly differentiate between good and dangerous characters,” described Leonnet. “We gave the environment surrounding the good characters a cyan tint, while the world features more red. Cyan and red, which are opposites as it relates to the composition of light, and it worked thematically. If you subtract cyan, you get red, and if you subtract red, you get cyan.”

Leonnet collaborated with directors Troy Quane and Nick Bruno out of EFILM’s Hollywood post production facility. She concluded, “It was an honor to contribute to this film and a joy to work on. Nick and Troy are incredible comedic talents and have amazing eyes for color. One of my favorite notes was that was the first scene needs to feel like a hug, so we made the color really warm. They really put their heart and soul into this film, and I think it shows.”
