EFILM Senior Colorist Natasha Leonnet Continues Longstanding Collaboration with Acclaimed Director Jason Reitman on New Comedy from Focus Features, Tully.

For Focus Features’ new comedy, Tully, about a mother of three who is gifted a night nanny and the unique bond that forms between them, EFILM senior colorist Natasha Leonnet reteamed with Academy Award-nominated director/producer Jason Reitman and cinematographer Eric Steelberg. Leonnet has worked on every Reitman helmed film since his directorial debut, Thank You For Smoking; with Steelberg serving as cinematographer on nearly every picture.   

Tully boasts an all-star female team including Academy Award-winner Charlize Theron, Academy Award-winning writer Diablo Cody, Academy Award-nominated producer Helen Estabrook, and for Leonnet, who completed the theatrical and home color grades, the film presented a unique opportunity, “Tully deals with an important topic that I’m not sure many films tackle, which is postpartum depression. My main concern was that I hit the tone correctly and execute both Jason and Eric’s vision.”

Leonnet notes the overall look that Steelberg and Reitman wanted to achieve, “Both Eric and Jason wanted it to have a softness that Jason has really admired in Swedish cinema; an elegant, subtle look with a subtle richness to it, so it doesn’t feel lacking in color. Ultimately Jason never wants to create a look that feels extremely deliberate. He wants the aesthetic of the film to feel as if it’s a documentary and you just happen to be experiencing the same thing as the characters. While at the same time he does it all with great poetry.”

Tully is in theaters now. For tickets and showtimes please visit focusfeatures.com/tully.

EFILM SUPPORTS YOUNG FILMMAKERS IN COCA-COLA AND REGAL FILMS PROGRAM

As part of our ongoing championing of emerging talent, EFILM is a proud partner with Coca-Cola and Regal Films for their annual student filmmaking program.

The Coca-Cola and Regal Films program invites aspiring, up-and-coming filmmakers from 29 university and college film schools across the country to participate. Students receive funding, mentorship, and resources from the program’s technical partners Deluxe’s EFILM and RED Digital Camera. EFILM provides color grading services to each of the program’s five finalists, who create 35-second films to connect people to the movie-going experience. The grand prize- winning film will debut at Regal theaters nationwide this summer and receive a RED camera package to launch their career.

Alex Portin, feature sales at EFILM, describes the experience of working with the young filmmakers, “EFILM is branching out to help students and independent filmmakers create stunning features and shorts with the most experienced talent in the industry. We strive to place as much care in small budget shorts as we do for hundred million dollar features. We thoroughly enjoyed partnering with Coke and Regal, providing professional color to the young filmmakers, so they are confident in the look of their final product.”

This year Coca-Cola and Regal Films have announced a new Fan Favorite Award. The program and its partners aim to create a platform to support the next generation of filmmakers though social sharing. Now through April 20th visit coke.com/RegalFilms to watch all of the finalists and vote by sharing their work on twitter! The winner will be announced on April 23rd.
