We collaborated with Bob Hoffman, Technicolor historian and long-standing friend of the studio to delve into the history & legacy of Technicolor.
Photographer Anthony Friedkin’s image, below, was taken on the Universal Studios backlot, sometime in the late 1970s. The vault held any number of classic Technicolor 3-strip 35mm film prints, but we use it here in a metaphorical way – to suggest the value of preservation of our shared legacy and heritage. Aside from those cinematic assets in the image, we believe they represent the enduring value of the company’s celebrated past, that continues to resonate today, informing our future goals. What do we mean by legacy and heritage?
You can read the full introduction from Bob on the evolution of Technicolor to what is it today here, and explore The Vault to discover key moments from our iconic & vibrant history.
