Jimmy Larouche's First Feature Film

Technicolor worked with Jimmy Larouche for the post production of his first feature film, La Cicatrice.

Technicolor Montreal is proud to have completed the sound and image post production for La Cicatrice, the first full-length feature film written, produced and directed by Jimmy Larouche with Alma Films and Pipingo Films.
Technicolor’s colourist Éric Gaudry performed the unique colour correction used in the film, which has received wide acclaim on the festival circuit. “Jimmy and Director of Photography Glauco Bermudez wanted to give the film a chiaroscuro look,” Mr. Gaudry recalls. “We took our inspiration from paintings by Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Georges de La Tour. It was very creative from an artistic point of view. We spent nearly an entire day working to get the looks we wanted. I had my idea of what we could do, Jimmy had his, and all of that blended together to create the finished product.”

Online Editor François Massé and awards–winning Sound Mixer Stéphane Bergeron also contributed to Mr. Larouche’s creative process within the post production. “I loved my experience with Technicolor because I loved the people I worked with," Mr. Larouche says. “They were all passionate, talented and committed people.”

The film has circled the globe since its premiere in fall 2012, with screenings at festival after festival including: the Festival du Nouveau Cinéma in Montreal; the Festival de cinéma de la Ville de Québec; the Busan International Film Festival in Korea; the Plus Camerimage Festival in Poland; the Rendez-vous du Cinéma Québécois; Cinesonika 3 in Derry, Northern Ireland; the Cinequest Film Festival in San José (USA); and the Festival Fantaspoa de Porto Alegre in Brazil, to name just a few.

La Cicatrice arrived in theaters on April 12, 2013
