Freelance DI Colourist

Between Berlin and the UK, I am a freelance DI colourist and workflow consultant. I develop creative partnerships with cinematographers, mainly working on long-form projects.

I typically work in Resolve, Baselight, Nucoda, On-set Dailies and am experienced with various colour managed workflows and working on projects shot on photochemical film.

Educator & UP.GRADE

As head of the German Film and Television Academy’s UP.GRADE programmes I am responsible for running courses that educate colourists, cinematographers, editors, post-supervisors and producers.

To date, UP.GRADE has been the world’s only longterm (9-months full time) programme teaching the art and science of colour grading to a new generation of colourists.

The UP.GRADE programme

The official UP.GRADE programme trailer.

For knowledge-thirsty colourists out there, the German Film and Television Academy’s 9-month, Berlin-based UP.GRADE course has been the to die for training programme with which to learn and experience almost everything relevant to the evolving domain of colour grading.

In 2018 the programme began its fourth iteration. For prospective students or those about to start the course, I created an UP.GRADE student FAQ page with further information.
