Colorist Coloring, what?
We dream about pixel-perfect highlights and shadows. Obsess over upper shadows, film grain and black levels. And strive for the contrast, consistency and style of a color grade that will take your project from meh to masterful.
Develop Your Look
Does your project need to look like a Michael Bay/1970/Blue Period piece? Dark and Gritty? Warm and poppy? Vintage and ethereal?
We’ve got a look for that.
Whether you knew your color palette before you shot or are still kinda-sorta working it out now that the edit’s locked, we leverage decades of experience making beautiful look routine and perfect for YOUR project.
OK, maybe talking about consistency is about as exciting as getting a PBJ in your lunchbox. But at least you knew it was going to be there every day. Your film deserves to have exposure, skin tone and brand colors remain the same from the first frame to the last. So viewers can focus on your message and your story. Hey, the variables on set or in the real world are unavoidable. But they are correctable, and it makes a mouthful of difference.
We’ve graded everything AND the kitchen sink. (they tend to look good with some cool tones pushed into the chrome highlights. Hey!!! You asked). Yep, we’ve graded everything from food and fashion to football and features. With that comes the experience to get to your look in a style all its own.
OK. Maybe you don’t lose sleep over your monitor. But we do. Every reference and client monitor in our state-of-the-art facility meets the standards of today's standards and matches across our facility. That means your project will look great anywhere... from your phone to the state-of-the-art screen we mail to you to remote grade with us from anywhere in the world.
You need 4K DCI Scope delivered as a P3 DCP … or you don’t know what that is. Whatever screen will showcase your story, we have the technical knowledge (aka vast nerdiness) to deliver whatever you need wherever you need it.
It's true. Remote color sessions exist. Clients love them, we love them...everyone loves them. We simply ship you a color calibrated iPad, you settle in with a nice cup of coffee, and you receive a perfectly calibrated, live image from us, to you. We can work through all the notes and thoughts until its exactly where it needs to be. Give it a try. You'll love it.

We love making amazing things & hanging with talented people. So, let's do this.
