Through his time on-set, he honed a set of valuable skills; from keeping calibrated visual references to running a consistent live grade service and managing dailies labs whilst recording grading information for future post work. His many years on-set has given him a unique perspective on how to deal with different lenses, filters and lighting setups. With vast industry experience from working on a variety of production types and scales, Luis has gained an in-depth knowledge of workflows, technologies and creative tools.
Becoming a DI colourist was the next natural step for Luis. Working with DPs from around the world, each with their unique approach to colour and lighting, allowed him train his eye and expand his visual library.
Luis collaborates closely with the cinematographer on every step of the process, getting involved in the early stages of the visual look design and offering a relaxed and intimate environment to approach the final grading process with boundless creativity.
Luis is regularly invited to teach at international film schools and helps Digital Orchard Foundation deliver workshops and training for individuals in the early stages of their careers.
