Supervising DI Colorist Jean-Clément Soret of Technicolor London has won a BAFTA Television Craft Award in the Special, Visual & Graphic Effects category, for his work on the acclaimed Netflix drama Black Mirror. Soret won for his work as Digital Colorist on the David Slade helmed episode ‘Metalhead’ (Season 4, Episode 5) – set in a stark post-apocalyptic world where AI has taken over in the form of menacing robotic dogs.
The BAFTA Television Craft Awards is a celebration and recognition of the behind-the-scenes talent in television excellence. The purpose of the Awards is also to inspire the next generation from all backgrounds and circumstances to learn about and pursue one of the many available careers in the industry.
Jean-Clément comments: “It was an absolute pleasure working with Annabel Jones, Charlie Brooker [co-showrunners] and David Slade on ‘Metalhead’ and I’m delighted that the Visual Effects work, as well as color grading, has been recognized by BAFTA. The Black Mirror team are fantastic collaborators and are always underlining the importance that visuals play in telling their stories. It is always a fun and creative process.”
This marks the third year in a row that Technicolor London has provided picture post for Black Mirror. Soret also graded the season four episodes ‘Arkangel’ (Episode 2) and ‘Black Museum’ (Episode 6).
