Light Iron adds sr. colorist Nicholas Hasson
People on the Move
- HOLLYWOOD, Calif.
Light Iron--a postproduction creative services provider and member of the Panavision family of companies--has added sr. colorist Nicholas Hasson to its roster. Hasson will be based in the company’s Los Angeles facility.
Peter Cioni, Light Iron’s general manager, said of Hasson, “His background in color, online, and VFX ensures success in meeting clients’ creative objectives and enables flexibility in working across both episodic and feature projects.”
Hasson colored the upcoming Tiffany Haddish feature Nobody’s Fool and season 2 of HBO’s Room 104. Additional past credits include Boo 2: A Madea Halloween, Masterminds, All About Nina, and commercial campaigns for Apple, Samsung and Google. Hasson worked most recently at Technicolor, but his long career has included time at ILM, Company 3, and Modern VideoFilm.
“I had been following the work of Light Iron’s colorists, as well as admiring the company’s progressive approach toward technology, for a long time,” said Hasson. It’s a pleasure to work alongside such a talented group of artists and producers.” Like the company’s other LA-based colorists, led by Ian Vertovec, Hasson is able to support cinematographers working in other regions through virtual DI sessions in Panavision’s network of connected facilities.
Hasson joins the company during a time of high-profile streaming releases, such as Netflix’s Maniac and Facebook’s Sorry for Your Loss, as well as feature releases garnering awards buzz, such as Can You Ever Forgive Me? and What They Had.
