Senior Colorist Siggy Ferstl helped bring the true story of Heavyweight Champion George Foreman to life in the feature film “Big George Foreman,” starring Khris Davis, John Magaro, Lawrence Gilliard Jr., and Forest Whitaker.

Using his tool of choice, DaVinci Resolve Studio, Ferstl worked with Director George Tillman, Jr. and Cinematographer John Matysiak to develop period looks that aided in distinguishing the different decades and fights of Foreman’s life.

“We used Resolve’s magic mask for object isolation and tracking, which simplified the process of selecting individual characters and separating foregrounds and backgrounds for different types of corrections in the fight scenes,” said Ferstl.
