Technicolor – PostWorks is the leading provider of
post-production services for motion pictures, documentaries and other long-form
media, and has been a strong supporter of independent film. “We congratulate
all of the filmmakers on their success in 
Toronto,” said Technicolor – PostWorks Chief Operating Officer Rob

team takes great pride in working with some of the world’s most talented
directors, cinematographers and editors and in helping them to achieve their
creative visions.”
Fading Gigolo is
Director John Turturro’s comedy about a florist (Turturro) who becomes a
professional Don Juan in order to help his cash-strapped friend (Woody Allen).
The cast also includes Sofia Vergara, Liev Schreiber and Sharon Stone. The film
was shot by Cinematographer Marco Pontecorvo and edited by Simona Paggi.
Technicolor – PostWorks’ crew included DI Colorist Tim Stipan, DI Conforming Editor
George Bunce and Dailies Colorist Adam Moore. Technicolor – PostWorks has a
long history with Turturro, dating back to his first film as a director, the
1992 release Mac.
Director David Frankel’s One Chance is a comedy centered on an aspiring
singer who becomes a reality-show sensation. Starring Julie Walters, Colm
Meaney and Mackenzie Crook, the film was shot by Cinematographer Florian
Ballhaus and edited by Wendy Green Bricmont.  
Technicolor – PostWorks’ George Bunce served as DI Editor. Colorist Paul
Ensby flew in from Technicolor, London, to grade the film under Ballhaus’s
supervision.

Marking Director Ned Benson’s feature debut, The
Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him and Her
is a heart-wrenching drama about the dissolution of a marriage,
told from the husband’s and wife’s points of view in altering perspectives. The
film stars Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy, with cinematography by Chris
Blauvelt. At Technicolor – PostWorks, DI conforming and color grading was done
by Ben Perez.
The Armstrong Lie is Academy Award-winning director Alex
Gibney’s powerful examination of the career of Lance Armstrong, centering on
the cyclist’s 2009 comeback attempt and subsequent fall from grace.  The film, which was shot by Cinematographer

through editorial conforming and final color grading at The Room, the boutique
finishing facility located within Technicolor – PostWorks. Jack Lewars was the
