Viewers will discover how Juan built a non-destructive and efficient finishing pipeline, allowing him to be agile and flexible throughout the whole process – conforming, color grading and preparing all the final deliverables of this popular TV series. Juan’s work was recognized with nomination for the best color at last year’s HPA awards.

Juan started his career in Madrid 24 years ago, working as a VFX Supervisor and Animator. After 11 years in the VFX industry, his career evolved towards Color and Finishing. His background in Visual Effects helped him immensely with the technical side of color grading and color science and that’s how he discovered SGO and Mistika Technology. He has integrated Mistika on every project he has worked on, including major blockbusters like Prometheus, Amazing Spiderman, Star Trek: Into Darkness, Transformers: Age of Extinction, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, for which he won 2 Advanced Imaging Society Awards.
