Deluxe is thrilled to congratulate EFFILM Senior Colorist Natasha Leonnet on her much-deserved HPA Award win for Outstanding Color Grading in a feature film for her work on “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.”
Symbolizing freedom of expression and mastery of an artist’s craft, HPA Awards are bestowed for groundbreaking creative and technological achievement, a fitting recognition for Leonnet’s innovative work on “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” The film’s distinct and unusual visual style prompted Leonnet to utilize hue shifting tools usually reserved for music videos as she further amplified bold color choices, working closely with Production Designer Justin K. Thompson, VFX Supervisor Danny Dimian, and Art Director Dean Gordon to underscore story points and provide a distinct, cohesive look.

Leonnet received her award at the HPA Awards Gala Event that was held at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles on November 21, 2019. Congratulations to all of the winners and nominees; including our nominated VFX artists and colorists across Deluxe Toronto, Encore VFX, and EFILM.
