We are a boutique post-production house going beyond the technical & artistic aspects of each project and offering custom creative approaches, advice and a welcoming environment.

We work with our clients from Pre-Production to avoid or correct issues before they arise. We go after excellence and long-term relationships. We don't like the "factory" approach, and we care about each and every one of our projects like if it was our own...

OUR Workflow

We believe that Post-production starts in
Pre-production, and we refuse to think one workflow fits it all. We like to re-evaluate our way of work with every project to be able to squeeze the last bit of time and quality in each challenge. 

COLOR GRADING

Our Color Grading is not just supervised vs unsupervised. We get involved early and work with the director and cinematographer to find the soul of the project. We love having the DP around during sessions and we are an open book when it comes to our workflow. Come and feel truly at home!

HDR mastering

We started delivering HDR in 2017 and have not stopped since! We are Dolby Vision certified and understand the workflow deeply, both for native HDR Grading and HDR delivery after Rec709/P3.

We monitor with the best standard: Sony BVM-X300/2

 

ABOUT  US

LightBender_ColorRoom-3.JPG

From our founder:

I started doing Post 24 years ago and since then, always had something like LightBender in mind. I wanted to be a partner to my clients, center my business in quality and trust, and always walk the extra mile to be proud of what we do.
 

I believe in the founder-operator approach because it allows to re-invest in the right things, and always with the client in mind.

In my career, I have been very lucky to have worked on many amazing places, like Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot, and I have always tried to extract the best of each of them to apply it to my own studio. That's why we break rules and do things differently. That's why we re-engineer ourselves with every project, with the same passion you put on your projects.
