EFILM Senior Colorist Natasha Leonnet Continues Longstanding Collaboration with Acclaimed Director Jason Reitman on New Comedy from Focus Features, Tully.

For Focus Features’ new comedy, Tully, about a mother of three who is gifted a night nanny and the unique bond that forms between them, EFILM senior colorist Natasha Leonnet reteamed with Academy Award-nominated director/producer Jason Reitman and cinematographer Eric Steelberg. Leonnet has worked on every Reitman helmed film since his directorial debut, Thank You For Smoking; with Steelberg serving as cinematographer on nearly every picture.   

Tully boasts an all-star female team including Academy Award-winner Charlize Theron, Academy Award-winning writer Diablo Cody, Academy Award-nominated producer Helen Estabrook, and for Leonnet, who completed the theatrical and home color grades, the film presented a unique opportunity, “Tully deals with an important topic that I’m not sure many films tackle, which is postpartum depression. My main concern was that I hit the tone correctly and execute both Jason and Eric’s vision.”

Leonnet notes the overall look that Steelberg and Reitman wanted to achieve, “Both Eric and Jason wanted it to have a softness that Jason has really admired in Swedish cinema; an elegant, subtle look with a subtle richness to it, so it doesn’t feel lacking in color. Ultimately Jason never wants to create a look that feels extremely deliberate. He wants the aesthetic of the film to feel as if it’s a documentary and you just happen to be experiencing the same thing as the characters. While at the same time he does it all with great poetry.”

Tully is in theaters now. For tickets and showtimes please visit focusfeatures.com/tully.
