Ichter comes to Light Iron from post facility The Mill. She began her career in France at Éclair, then went on to work at Deluxe in London and Efilm in Los Angeles before spending time at Harbor and Picture Shop. In all her work, she combines an artist’s eye with a passion for creative collaboration and a deep technical understanding of post-production workflows. 

“It’s extremely exciting to join Light Iron,” said Ichter. “This company is at the heart of post production for series and features, with the knowledge and ability to support filmmakers from production through post. That’s the most exciting part of the job for me — being able to create a LUT for the cinematographer before shooting begins, being part of the filmmakers’ visual creative process throughout production, and elevating the look with our final touches in the color suite. Light Iron’s connection with Panavision adds to those opportunities, streamlining workflows and communication and allowing projects to be delivered even more efficiently.” 

Ichter joins Light Iron’s celebrated roster of artists, which also includes supervising colorists Ian Vertovec and Corinne Bogdanowicz, senior colorists Charles Bunnag, Katie Jordan and Ethan Schwartz, and colorists Pat Fitzgerald and Keith Jenson. From its locations across North America, Light Iron’s full suite of creative services also includes VFX, dailies, offline editorial rentals, mastering and archive.
