Changing color – the FireFly Cinema story
Philippe Reinaudo and Luc Guenard were frustrated.
With 35 years of combined experience on hundreds of feature films, they had spent most of their careers on the bleeding edge. As technical leaders at Europe’s largest digital laboratory, they had been at the forefront in the digital cinema age innovating many workflow ‘firsts’ and solving many complex production problems.
And yet they were tired of the lack of a truly dedicated set of tools which made it easy to manage the digital cinema color pipeline from on-set dailies through to the finishing suite. FireFly Cinema was created out of a desire to turn this challenge into an opportunity, and today offers a suite of software solutions that complete the workflow for color professionals everywhere.
Based in France, the birthplace of cinema, FireFly Cinema tools are widely used across European film productions.
