Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that's raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.

Stefan Sonnenfeld, (Colorist)

Stefan Sonnenfeld, Founder and President of Company 3 and CEO of Deluxe Creative Services, is a trusted collaborator of some of the world’s best filmmakers. He is an artist of rare talent and a major contributor to the momentous creative, technical, and business-oriented changes that are sweeping the post-production industry today.

Sonnenfeld is among a handful of artists who has championed the power of color grading to tell stories and communicate emotion. Described by NPR as a “da Vinci of the movies,” Sonnenfeld has applied his skills as a colorist to many of the most acclaimed and popular features of the past decade: The Magnificent Seven, Beauty and the Beast, Deepwater Horizon, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Wonder Woman, and Justice League, to name a few.

Sonnenfeld grew up in Los Angeles and studied business at Boston University. A summer job delivering dailies for the TV series Miami Vice sparked his interest in post production. He began his career with Image Transform and became a colorist at The Post Group. At Pacific Ocean Post in the 1990s, he was among the most sought after colorists of commercials and music videos, forging close relationships with the industry’s top directors and cinematographers.

In 1997, Sonnenfeld founded Company 3. As many commercial directors made the transition to long-form work, Sonnenfeld became increasingly involved in grading feature films, helping to pioneer the digital intermediate process. At the same time, he built Company 3 into a national powerhouse, with an unrivaled reputation for excellence in color grading and other post production services. In 2007, Entertainment Weekly named Sonnenfeld to its list of “50 Smartest People in Hollywood.” Creativity Magazine also included him on its list of “Most Interesting People.”
