RALEIGH, NC — LA colorist Chris Hall is bringing his color grading and online editorial skills to his new home at Trailblazer Studios (www.TrailblazerStudios.com), here. Previously a finishing colorist at Bandito Brothers in Culver City and at Prehistoric Digital in Santa Monica, Hall worked on feature films that include Act of Valor and
Rich Hill. He has also colored a plethora of TV shows, commercials and music videos for the likes of Jaguar, Kellogg's, Mattel, Lexus, Hallmark and Lifetime.
"It had always been my dream to work in a smaller metro area, away from the 'crunch' and congestion of Hollywood, but still be able to work on larger projects for film and television with a national audience," says Hall. "Much to my amazement, I discovered that Trailblazer Studios is exactly that – a thriving company with top-notch equipment and facilities, an amazing roster of clients and high-quality projects, and extremely talented people who care about the projects passionately and personally."
Hall said he jumped at the opportunity and has never looked back.
"There's an atmosphere of professionalism here that coexists with a strong sense of balance between work and one's personal life," he notes. "That's so refreshing to see in an entertainment production company working on a national scale."
"We're thrilled to have Chris on board," adds Scott Roy, Trailblazer Studios' vice president of post production. "When it comes to bringing a storyteller’s vision to life on screen, Chris is one of the best we've seen. Adding his talent to our current list of top notch colorist will allow us to continue to raise the bar on the work we're doing internally and externally."
Since joining Trailblazer Studios, Hall has colored shows for DIY (Salvage Dawgs), PBS (A Chef's Life), and TLC (Sister Wives), as well as TV commercials and branding pieces for regional advertising agencies.
