Veteran colorist Jean-Clement Soret has been named supervising digital intermediate colorist at Technicolor Post in London. He will work in this new role, on features and TV, in addition to maintaining his current duties at Technicolor-owned VFX house MPC, as global creative director of color grading, working on advertising campaigns.

Soret's feature credits include 28 Days Later, Twilight: Eclipse, Trainspotting 2, In the Heart of the Sea and Steve Jobs; his TV work has included Babylon, Midnight Sun and Black Mirror.

In April, he will begin work on thriller Serenity, written and directed by Steve Knight, lensed by cinematographer Jess Hall, and starring Matthew McConaughay and Anne Hathaway. He recently completed Lynne Ramsay's You Were Never Really Here and is currently grading submarine disaster film Kursk, from director Thomas Vinterberg and shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer Anthony Dodd Mantle.

Technicolor's vp of postproduction in the U.K., John Fleming, said of Soret: "He has built an enviable track record due to his distinguished work in advertising, and more recently feature films. It is exciting to see him further expand our creative approach to imaging.”
