Light Iron which specializes in projects originated on file-based motion cameras supported five features at South by Southwest 2013 one of which  Short Term 12 was awarded the top honor of the Grand Jury Prize as well as the Audience Award for Narrative Feature Competition. “We’re so proud to collaborate again with the talented team behind Short Term 12 ” says Light Iron vice president of operations Katie Fellion. “Director Destin Cretton has created a complex and heartfelt story with compelling imagery from Director of Photography Brett Pawlak. It was no surprise that this terrific movie was awarded the Grand Jury Prize and we look forward to more audiences having the chance to experience it.” Cretton gave high praise for the digital intermediate services performed by Light Iron colorist Ian Vertovec. “Ian is a true artist and a master of his craft unafraid to push limits and defy conventions in order to discover something new and fresh and beautiful. I've colored my last two films with him at Light Iron and can't imagine ever doing another one without him.” Other SXSW features that Light Iron worked on were The Network directed by Emmy and Oscar-winner Eva Orner horror comedy Milo Rob Zombie’s Lords of Salem (which had previously premiered at the Toronto International FilmFestival) and The Short Game which won the SXSW Audience Award for Documentary Feature Competition.
