Watch your movies and TV shows the way the filmmakers intended. New TV picture mode on supported UHD TVs to preserve creative intent and provide cinematic experience.
Filmmakers, Hollywood Studios, consumer electronics companies and the UHD Alliance have collaborated to make this next-level home theater viewing experience possible. By disabling all post-processing (e.g. motion smoothing, etc.) and preserving the correct aspect ratios, colors and frame rates, Filmmaker Mode enables your TV to display the movie or television show’s content precisely as it was intended by the filmmaker.

What The Directors Are Saying
As a filmmaker it’s of great importance that my films be shown the way I made them, without any alterations whatsoever. Now with Filmmaker Mode, viewers can experience movies the way they were meant to be seen and appreciate their full impact.
All the work of hundreds, in some cases thousands of people, is going to end up in those film frames. Filmmaker Mode allows the integrity of that work to be seen and appreciated as intended.
We put a lot of thought into our movies and make a thousand decisions a day about sound, color, light, shadow, performance, emotion. Filmmaker Mode allows these choices to be seen in the home.
We make very specific choices, for artistic reasons about lighting and exposure and framing and what type of stock we use. Filmmaker Mode gives the viewer the choice to see the work as it was intended.

I care deeply about how cinema is experienced at home because that's where it lives the longest. With Filmmaker Mode, we can collectively help make the consumer experience more like it is in the cinema.
These televisions have the potential to look better than digital projection. We're to a point where it should be an incredible experience. Filmmaker Mode removes some obstacles. It’s a game changer.
Everyone is really trying to hone a very specific look which affects the tone and it affects the story. Filmmaker Mode guarantees people are watching the story in the way the artists intended.
Storytelling is an emotional process. We try to share that through our creative decisions. Filmmaker Mode allows the nuance of our decisions to come to life in a way that is effortless for the viewer.
As a filmmaker, I want to see—and I think viewers want to see—the creative vision carried through to the home viewer. Filmmaker Mode makes this possible.
The thing that sets Filmmaker Mode apart is it will be a pure, clean expression of what the movie was meant to look like when it was made.
The viewer should have the choice to see what the filmmakers intended...to have in a sense, what is a heart to heart with the filmmaker. Filmmaker Mode is a way to make sure they have that choice.
I can't help but imagine things in cinematic terms when I'm reading, when I'm writing, when I'm dreaming. It's what the dream is going to look like. Filmmaker Mode helps reflect that look.
Filmmaker Mode is essential because as filmmakers, the way we make things look is specifically intended to generate an emotional response from the audience.
Filmmaker Mode ensures the original intent of the filmmaker, the technical aspects and the way in which we finished the film in the edit suite and the color timing room gets to the viewer the way we intended.
Filmmaker Mode streamlines the process, makes it easy for even the non-tech savvy viewer to know they're seeing the movie the way the filmmaker would want them to.
