B etween Berlin and the UK, I am a freelance colourist, workflow consultant and head of the German Film and Television Academy's UP.GRADE programmes.

Producers contact me to develop and define the visual style of a project and workflow before post-production - saving time, money and creative differences in the final grade.

My DOPs have me written into their contracts for the same reason.

Post facilities I work at include:
ARRI, The Post Republic, OM Studios, Cineplus, the HFF and the Ludwigsburg Film Academy.

Software packages I grade with:
- FilmLight's Baselight
- Digital Vision's Nucoda
- Blackmagic Design's DaVinci Resolve
- FireFly Cinema's FirePost
- ColorFront's On-set Dailies

And in English. (German will need some more time).

A UK-born European raised in a post-colonial country, I have a special connection to Scotland, the Baltic states, Poland, Hungary - and now Germany natürlich.

Before becoming a colourist I was a documentary camera operator, industrial photographer, photo retoucher, projectionist...amongst other cinema-related roles.
