Anthony Raffaele began his career with Nice Shoes in 2001 and joined Deluxe in 2009. Now at Technicolor PostWorks, Anthony is one of the most sought-after colorists in the city, recently working with the legendary cinematographer Vittorio Storaro on the latest Woody Allen film, Café Society.
Here Anthony talks about how his life has been transformed by grading on Baselight and what an amazing experience it was to work with Vittorio…
After graduating from film school, I ended up working in the shipping department of New York post house Nice Shoes, which had a very good training program. During my eight years there, I learned everything I could about video, film and post-production. I started my journey from shipping to colorist, doing everything from cleaning 35mm film to assisting commercial colorists. At that time I primarily graded commercials and music videos, all working at night.
