Warner Bros. De Lane Lea (WBDLL) today announced that world-class Supervising Colourist Peter Doyle is joining its new picture services division. Peter brings with him an extensive breadth of technical expertise acquired over an impressive 40- year career.
Peter has colour graded 12 of the 100 highest-grossing films of all time including the multi-award winning The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the hugely successful Harry Potterfilm series. His recent credits include Darkest Hour, Ballad of Buster Scruggs and both Fantastic Beasts films.
“We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Peter to the team. His creative and technical expertise are unparalleled, and we are excited to work with him as a key part of our newly established dailies and picture post division. Our award-winning talent allow us to deliver TV and feature films to extraordinary levels of detail and creativity, offering our clients an exceptional level of service.”WBDLL Director, Cara Sheppard.
Peter will be working alongside award-winning Colourist Asa Shoul who joined WBDLL at the end of last year, in a move that firmly establishes the picture division as a match for the world-renowned sound facilities De Lane Lea also offers.
“I first worked with Warner Bros. on The Matrix in 1999. Since then, grading and delivering films to Warner Bros. for filmmakers, such as Tim Burton, David Yates, Dick Zanuck and David Heyman has always felt like a partnership. Warner Bros. always brought tremendous passion to the projects and a deep desire to how best represent the creative intent of the film makers. WBDLL represents a third-generation post facility, it’s been conceived with the philosophy that origination and delivery are part of the same process. It’s managed by a newly assembled crew that over the course of their careers have answered some of the most complex post production challenges the industry has devised. WBDLL is an environment and indeed a concept I feel London has needed for many years.”Peter Doyle
The new facilities at WBDLL include two 4K HDR Baselight X Grading Theatres, Flame Online suites, Digital Dailies facilities, Dark Fibre connectivity and a full Mastering and QC department. WBDLL has additional facilities based at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden including a 50 seat 4K Screening Room, 4K VFX Review Theatre and In-Facility and On-Location Digital Dailies, offering clients a full end-to-end service.
WBDLL has been the choice for many large features including Dumbo, Wonder Woman, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Fantastic Beasts, Early Man, Mission Impossible: Fallout and Outlaw King. It also has an impressive roster of high-end TV clients including Netflix, Amazon, Starz, BBC and ITV.
Last year the company announced it will be cementing its future in Soho by moving to the purpose-built state-of-the art Ilona Rose building in 2021 which is currently under construction.
