Sean is honored to have been part of American Cinematographer's "Star Wars" special edition. The team was interviewed on the image-making process for Star Wars Rebels and got to nerd out a bit more in depth than the usual "it's basically photoshop for moving images" when talking about about the color grading process on the show.  We touched on our use of lighting references, the advantages of being a 3D animated show, and various ways we gnar up the CG-perfect image through adding sobel edges, halation, grain and more, ultimately lending a more live action sensibility through the lighting and grading of the show.
