EFILM RE-TEAMS WITH OSCAR®-WINNING DIRECTOR DAMIEN CHAZELLE FOR UNIVERSAL PICTURES’ FIRST MAN

Following their six-time Academy Award®-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar®-winning director Damien Chazelle and Oscar®-winning cinematographer Linus Sandgren have reunited with colorist Natasha Leonnet for Universal Pictures’ First Man, starring Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy. First Man is the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight.

The filmmakers wanted the audience to share Armstrong’s visceral experience as he embarks on the one of the most dangerous missions in history. To capture the filmic look of the 1960s, the claustrophobic environment inside the NASA space capsules, and the desolate, pristine landscape of the lunar surface, Chazelle and Sandgren shot the film using multiple formats, including 16mm, 70mm, IMAX, and 2 perf, 3 perf, and 4 perf 35mm, and also incorporated actual NASA launch footage.

Leonnet worked with the filmmakers to both unify and contrast the aesthetic of the different formats, ultimately delivering various grades of the film, among them Dolby Cinema, Dolby Vision (4000 NIT, 1000NIT, 100NIT), and 100NIT Rec709.

“The experience of working with Damien and Linus was incredible and educational,” describes Leonnet.

With unwavering dedication and precision, Chazelle and Sandgren have created a cinematic experience that transports, thrills and moves audiences in a powerful, intimate account of one of the most dangerous explorations in human history, and the private sacrifices of the brave few who made it a reality.
