Alter Ego is one of the premier post facilities in the world. Based in Toronto, Alter Ego was founded 10 years ago by Australian Colorists Eric Whipp and Wade Odlum. They specialise in colouring on Baselight but the facility has grown to add VFX and production to its roster. The guys balance colouring TVCs, managing over 50 staff, and still manage to grade blockbuster feature films… How do they do it?

Topics discussed

  • Can they switch off the management issues when in a big session?
  • The boys discuss the move into using LG C7 monitors for both the colorist and the clients
  • Having to finish both English and French versions of their commercials
  • Eric graded ‘Max Max Fury Road’ and ‘Lego Movie 2’ – How is grading a big movie different to grading TVCs?
