LONDON — FilmLight, the provider of professional color grading solutions, has recruited colorist Andy Minuth as its new color workflow specialist. He brings a deep technical knowledge of image processing and color management to his role, as well as a long and successful track record in color grading.
Minuth, originally from Germany, was most recently lead colorist at 1000Volt Post Production in Istanbul, Turkey. There, he was responsible for the grade of commercials, as well as feature films, creating detailed looks and realizing the vision of directors using Baselight.
“With Baselight, I feel kind of limitless and incredibly confident,” says Minuth. “Some clients come into the grading session with headaches about particular shots or scenes. Often the shooting conditions were not optimal, for example. But when you set up the color journey correctly within Baselight, the image looks right. With that kind of power and precision, I can offer them solutions very fast and reassure them that their project will look great.
“I am very much looking forward to talking to other creatives around the world, sharing my experience and helping them discover all that Baselight and the rest of FilmLight’s product range can do to help them reach their artistic goals,” he adds. “I’m also excited to hear their stories about the productivity of the Baselight Linked Grade (BLG) workflow now that it’s reaching more artists - DITs, editors and compositors - throughout the production process.”
While Minuth will be based in FilmLight’s new office in Munich, Germany, he will have a global presence for the company, helping users develop unified colour pipelines and enhance skills wherever they may be located.
