CBS’ new military court room drama “The Code” features a bold look that was carefully honed by Encore Senior Colorist Tony D’Amore and DP Jimmy Lindsey. The pair developed a bright and clean overall aesthetic with low color saturation and a general cool, blue tone. The series’ strong look was set in episode one, with enthusiastic support from producers, and is maintained through the season, giving the show a distinct vibe that stands out to audiences.
“It’s fun to flex my creativity, tools and techniques to develop a visual identity for the show and season,” D’Amore noted. “The shows I typically work on are not as bright as ‘The Code’ so it was fun to step outside my norm and evaluate the color from a different perspective.”
