Technicolor — a series of color motion picture processes — “unites creativity with technology to push the boundaries of what entertainment can be.” It was the 2nd major color process, after Britain’s Kinemacolor, and the most widely used color process in Hollywood from 1922 to 1952. The technology has been used for filming musicals such as The Wizard of Oz, animation films including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs among other dramas and comedies. More recently, Technicolor’s MPC Film produced all Visual Effects (VFX) and animation for Walt Disney’s Lion King — a total of 1,490 shots plus 2D and 3D images. Technicolor’s family of creative studios includes MPC, The MILL, Mr. and Mikros.
