CHICAGO — Framestore extended the reach of its color department with the opening of a Chicago office back in May. The studio has since announced the relocation of colorist Edwin Metternich to the Midwest location. Metternich joined Framestore as a runner in 2007, and moved quickly into the color team, first as an assistant and progressing into grading after only a couple of years. He has been an integral part of the color department in London.
Metternich has worked on a multitude of projects, including Framestore’s first video game VFX job Guitar Hero Live, and The Eye for Audi.
“Finding a talented colorist to help launch a new office and represent a brand like Framestore is certainly a tall order,” says executive producer Krystina Wilson. “The goal was to find someone who speaks the unique language of color and possesses both the skillset and the personality to communicate effectively with clients. Someone who brings a level of talent that would attract people to our Framestore offering and most importantly - someone who would continue to inspire and lead our team internally as we grew. To say we 'lucked out' to have Edwin officially join us is an understatement.”
