HOLLYWOOD — MTI Film (www.mtifilm.com) has added dailies colorist Arthur Oganesyan to its team of post production artists. He brings experience in streaming and broadcast series through stints at Encore, Hollywood and Company 3. Oganesyan’s first project for MTI involved grading dailies for the new season of American Horror Story from Ryan Murphy Productions and FX Network.
“Art brings solid experience and tremendous passion,” notes MTI CEO Larry Chernoff. “He has a good eye and is an excellent collaborator. Our clients will enjoy working with him.”
A Los Angeles native, Oganesyan began his career with Company 3 in 2016 shortly after earning a degree in film and television from Woodbury University. Gravitating toward color, he became a dailies colorist at Encore, Hollywood. His credits included Homecoming for Amazon Studios, Space Force for Netflix, S.W.A.T. for CBS, and Cherish the Day for Own. Since 2020, he has worked as a freelancer.
Oganesyan sees his new position at MTI Film as an opportunity to work on challenging projects and grow his career.
“The creative environment at MTI is wonderful; everyone is working together to do great work and deliver projects,” he says. “I feel fortunate to join the team.”
Oganesyan initially considered a career in cinematography, but was encouraged to consider post by a professor at Woodbury University.
“He introduced me to color grading,” Oganesyan recalls. “I immediately found that I enjoyed working with cinematographers and directors and helping them to hone the final look of their imagery.”
