A Conversation with Colorist Julien von Schultzendorff

Wed, 12/11/2019 - 13:01 -- Nick Dager

Julien von Schultzendorff is a colorist at nhb studios in Germany, which has Baselight grading facilities in Hamburg, Berlin, Düsseldorf and Munich. He has now been with nhb for five years and is well established in the color-grading scene in Germany. At present most of his work is in high-end commercials, for clients like Mercedes, BMW, Volkswagen, Rimowa, Lufthansa and more. His long-term goal is to work on feature films. At the end of 2019 von Schultzendorff will move to Berlin, where nhb is currently building a new Baselight suite, to work alongside Pana Argueta. His father is cinematographer Wedigo von Schultzendorff and his mother a photographer, so he has virtually grown up on set being surrounded by cameras and film crew and equipment, and learning about the visual appeal of pictures. That experience played a big part in how von Schultzendorff chose a career in color grading. Digital Cinema Report recently spoke with von Schultzendorff and that’s where our conversation begins.
