Colourist Jean-Clément Soret puts the eighties aesthetic on acclaimed Sky Drama, Chernobyl

Technicolor has provided Picture Post with color finishing by Jean-Clément Soret for the new five-part miniseries event from Sister Pictures, part of a co-production with Sky and HBO. The series depicts the Chernobyl nuclear disaster of April 1986 and the unprecedented cleanup efforts that followed.

Jean-Clément said: “I worked closely with Johan Renck the director and Jakob Ihre the DOP to bring a colour palette and texture that worked along the art direction, set design, cinematography and overall aesthetic of the 80’s Soviet era. It was very inspirational to be part of such a high profile project and a true story”
