colorist Laura Jans Fazio
dark with Mr. Robot
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
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.
