Sound Designer and Supervisor Jonah Guelzo has produced an interesting Behind-The-Scenes interview series with Filmmaking Industry Professionals, covering all aspects of Filmmaking from sound, to picture and editing. In this episode, Jonah speaks with Senior Digital Colourist, Mark T. Osborne (Need For Speed, It Follows) about continuing to hone his craft through the art of colour, and setting the tone and mood for each film.

Mark is passionate about the moving image and how it evokes mood, tone and communicates ideas. Growing up, he was a television and movie junkie. He was enthralled with how the camera moved and framed the characters in order to tell their story. All that television might have been bad for most kids, but he turned it into a career.
He has worked in the Television/Film Industry for the past 25 years starting in production before quickly moved into post-production as an apprentice editor. He has been a Digital Colorist for the past 18 years. He says that where he excels is having a sharp, meticulous eye for color and a strong communication with his clients in order to bring their vision to the screen. He speaks the language of film and performs his art with creativity, logic and precision for VR, Commercials, Features, Episodic, Videos & Web Content.
