Facebook Watch original series “Limetown” follows American Public Radio (APR) journalist Lia Haddock (Jessica Biel) as she works to unravel the mystery behind the disappearance of more than 300 people at a neuroscience research facility in Tennessee. Based on a fictional podcast of the same name, the ten-episode thriller was colored by EFILM’s Natasha Leonnet, who was tapped by DP Julie Kirkwood to create a soft contrast, moody and filmic look for the show to immerse viewers into Lia’s world. Working closely with Director Rebecca Thomas, Leonnet and Kirkwood also accounted for how the content would most likely be viewed via mobile device when shaping the aesthetic and this determining the luminance of images.
“We spent a lot of time on the color and I feel so lucky that I got to be on the show,” shared Leonnet. “Julie and Rebecca are true artists, both thoughtful and talented. It was a joy to be able to work on such interesting content for this unique platform and in an incredibly supportive environment. They approached the project as if it was a feature, so it was like working on a very long film.”
Leonnet colored each episode of “Limetown” season one, with Encore Colorist Andrea Chlebak also contributing to one episode. The first two episodes premiered on Facebook Watch on October 16, with two new episodes scheduled to premiere each Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. ET.
