NEW YORK CITY — Boutique color correction studio Rare Medium (https://raremedium.tv) has promoted Stephanie Park to colorist. She began her career at The Mill as a runner, working her way up to color assist. From there, she moved on to Rare Medium, where was a senior color assist before moving up to junior colorist.
During her time at Rare Medium, Park has graded a number of projects, including an Elon Musk deepfake spot in which he delivers a PSA from Mars, and a surreal short that sees Maya Hawke of Stranger Things transform into a fish.
“I’m very excited to start my journey as a colorist at Rare Medium,” says Park. “It’s my second family at this point - being a small group helps us form a strong support system and stay true to who we are creatively. Many of us worked together before the company started, but I really admire the fact that the team aspires to grow and give a chance to people - like me - to advance in their career. Thanks to our entire team for believing in me, and I can’t wait to work on projects in the upcoming years.”
“Stephanie was Rare Medium’s first hire,” notes Heath Raymond, managing partner at Rare Medium. “As an assistant colorist she was highly motivated, calm under pressure and smarter than all of us. We wouldn’t be where we are without her natural understanding of the color pipeline and her love of the craft. We can’t wait to see what she does next.”
