Senior Colourist Anne Boyle worked closely with Director Mike Rohl and Cinematographer Fernando Argüelles to deliver the warm atmosphere. The end-result is a soft and romantic look, beautifully lit and true to the design of the images, which include distinctive Scottish landscapes and beautiful period costume detailing.

“Working with Anne was a pleasure,” said Rohl. “I was impressed by her professional approach, her obvious technical expertise, but more importantly her keen artistic eye.” The film was completed during the COVID-19 and Technicolor quickly adapted, putting measures in place to provide a safe environment for both clients and their team.

THE PRINCESS SWITCH: SWITCHED AGAIN is now streaming on Netflix.
