Encore colorist Laura Jans Fazio
goes dark with Mr. Robot
By Randi Altman

After watching Mr. Robot when it premiered on USA Network last year, I changed all of my computer passwords and added a degree of difficulty that I’m proud of. I’m also not 100 percent convinced that my laptop’s camera isn’t on even when there’s no green light. That’s right, I completely and gleefully bought into the paranoia, and I wasn’t alone. Mr. Robot won Best Television Series Drama at this year’s Golden Globes, and one of the show’s supporting actors, Christian Slater, took home a statue.

The show, about a genius New York-based computer hacker (Rami Maleck) who believes corporations control, well, everything, has been getting its color grade by Laura Jans Fazio, lead colorist at Deluxe’s Encore, since its second episode.

If you watch any TV at all, you’ve very likely seen some of Jans Fazio’s work. Her resume lists House of Cards, Hawaii 5-0, Proof, Empire and The Lottery, and she’s currently gearing up to work on the updated Gilmore Girls and Lady Dynamite.

Jans Fazio was kind enough to take some time out from grading this upcoming season of House of Cards to chat about her work on Mr. Robot.

The era of the demo reel has come and gone
By Joel Pilger

Be honest, when business gets slow at your creative studio, does someone suggest, “Let’s cut a new demo reel?”

Ah, the “demo reel.” That classic, rapid-fire, glitzy montage of your studio’s best work. The first demo reels I ever saw came from legendary studios like Pittard Sullivan, GRFX Novocom and Telezign. They gave me goose bumps. That was 1994.
