TECHNICOLOR CELEBRATES OSCAR® WINS FOR ITS CUSTOMERS AND VFX DIVISION:
MPC



MPC's Guillaume Rocheron receives Oscar for Life of Pi
Academy Award-winning Visual Effects



Paris (France) & Hollywood (California) - February 26, 2013 -
Technicolor
(Euronext Paris: TCH), today announced the wins at Academy Awards in Los
Angeles, for its MPC brand's stunning VFX work produced for Life of Pi. The
film was the big winner last weekend, receiving four Oscars, including
recognition for the films
Cinematography, Score, and most importantly, filmmaker Ang Lee who was
honored
for his achievement in Direction.





The other big winners at last night's event included Argo, Les Miserables,
Lincoln, Django, Skyfall and Silver Linings Playbook -- films all served,
in one
capacity or another, by Technicolor's creative services teams.



"Last year, we had the honor of serving an incredible range of films
singled out
at this year's Oscars ceremony in Hollywood. Our talent and innovation was
very
much evidenced by this unique group of films, led by Life of Pi, Ang Lee's
stunning achievement," said Frederic Rose, CEO of Technicolor. "Technicolor
remains, after nearly 100 years, a vital creative force within the motion
picture industry, and we applaud MPC and our customers for their towering
achievements."



Technicolor worked on six of the nine nominated films for Best Picture,
including the Best Picture winner, Argo. But it was with directors Ang Lee
and
Steven Spielberg's Life of Pi and Lincoln respectively that Technicolor's
creative services talent and teams provided the most material support -
originating during principal photography, and culminating with the film's
digital intermediate color-grading and finishing.



Technicolor is especially proud of Oscar-winning cinematographer Claudio
Miranda, ASC, for his stunning work on Mr. Lee's visual feast for the eyes.
Miranda's work was seamlessly integrated with the Oscar-winning visual
effects
on Life of Pi, produced in part by MPC, a feat that represents the first
time in
Technicolor history that the company provided creative services and
produced
visual effects work on the eventual Oscar winner in both categories
honoring VFX
and cinematography.
