WALTER CAVATOI, C.S.I.

DIGITAL  COLORIST

Ultimately, my goal is to help filmmakers to tell stories.

My role is to bring their visual language to life and add my expertise to make it coherent and unique.

A colorist is a technician and an artist,  needs to master storytelling, cinematography  color science and develop the sensitivity to make use of those skills to serve the story.

I love experimenting, testing new techniques and looking for a special approach on every new project

I am an italian Colourist  with over 12 years of experience color grading  feature Films, documentaries ,TV series  and commercials around the world.

I started in Post Production in the early 2000 and worked for several facilities as a freelancer as well as running my own studio.

In 2014 I moved to middle east and had extensive experience in TV industry, collaborating to set up grading units and supervise the work of small teams.

In the last few years I have seen my international network of clients growing fast and I have graded films and TVCs from over 15 different countries. I am available with DCI studio cinema equipped suite in Rome (Italy), Bologna (Italy), Doha (Qatar), Chennai (India) and trough my networ of partners in UK and US

Remote Grading available worldwide

Full Member of C.S.I, the Colorist Society International.
