Colorist Brian Carlucci joins Filmworkers
CHICAGO — Brian “Crash” Carlucci has been hired by Filmworkers, Chicago, as senior colorist. Carlucci’s career includes tenures at Riot in Santa Monica, FSM in Sydney, Rumblefish in Milano, and most recently, Fame in Bangkok, where he headed a newly-launched data grading department.
Among his recent credits is an international campaign for Carrera Sunglasses titled No Regrets for DLV BBDO, Milan, and the world launch campaign for Izusu’s new D-Max pick-up truck. Carlucci’s color design has also helped shape beautiful looks for Ferrari, BMW, Nike, Armani Junior, Mercedes Benz, Corona, Toyota, Qantas and Mitsubishi.
Filmworkers (www.filmworkers.com) president Reid Brody says that Carlucci’s hiring followed an intense international talent search. “Crash’s experience in working with A-list directors on top tier creatively assignments makes him a fantastic addition to Filmworkers and the Chicago market. He ranks among the top commercial colorists worldwide.”
“I’ve had an opportunity to design wonderful grades for clients from all over the world,” says Carlucci. “In Italy, they create beautiful, stylized looks. Asia is all about the pop and bright colors that fit wonderfully alongside the neon lights. In Australia they favor subtle and elegant grades that compete with the looks from the UK.”
After graduating from film school, Carlucci, whose nickname, Crash, dates from his days on the US Ski Team, began his career with Charlex and The Tape House, New York. He later relocated to Southern California where he worked at Hollywood Digital, Pacific Ocean Post and Riot.
