Post facility, Harbor, has added Maxine Gervais to its roster as Senior Colourist.

Gervais has worked on over 50 blockbuster and critically acclaimed feature films. She has been recognised for her work garnering two Hollywood Professional Association (HPA) nominations for Outstanding Colour Grading – Feature Film, for her work on Hughes Brothers’ “The Book of Eli,” and Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim.” Gervais was the first woman to receive an HPA award for Outstanding Colour Grading for Albert Hughes’ “Alpha.” Gervais’ credits include Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther,” Clint Eastwood’s “Cry Macho,” Peacock’s “The Continental: From the World of John Wick,” Netflix’s “The Brothers Sun,” Universal Pictures’ “Strays,” and Sundance Grand Jury Prize Winner, “A Thousand and One” directed by A.V. Rockwell.

Gervais said, “Like John Alton’s book ‘Painting with Light’ describes, a colourist paints with colours, shadows, and contrast to help define and spotlight the beauty of the captured images by the cinematographer. This is done to enhance the desired mood, feel, and direction of the film. I’ve been fortunate to have collaborated with amazing filmmakers for a long time now and am excited to continue doing so at Harbor.”

“We are honored to welcome Maxine Gervais to Harbor. Her outstanding achievements and groundbreaking contributions to the film industry align seamlessly with Harbor’s commitment to excellence and creativity. Her work showcases her dedication to pushing the boundaries of creative storytelling through color. Maxine’s strong connections and trusted relationships with clients are poised to enrich Harbor’s community, and we eagerly anticipate the remarkable impact she will have on our projects and the industry at large,” said Zak Tucker, CEO at Harbor.
