Former Company 3 colourist Paul Ensby has joined Technicolor London and starts his new role this month.
His recent credits include HBO documentary Diego Maradona that he graded for longtime friend and collaborator Asif Kapadia. He had previously worked on Kapadia’s Oscar-winning documentary Amy and the BAFTA-winning documentary Senna. Ensby also recently finished grading mini series Quiz for ITV and Left Bank Pictures, directed by Stephen Frears.
Ensby followed in his grandfather and father’s footsteps working in Technicolor’s London film laboratory in the early ‘90’s first as a ‘35mm trainee feature grader.’ He went on to become a fully-fledged grader where he worked with directors such as Ridley Scott, Jane Campion, Ken Russell, Neil Jordan, Bill Forsyth and Stephen Frears.
“Technicolor has always been home to me,” said Ensby. “They have and will continue to be a standard of excellence and I’m happy to be starting the next chapter in my career with Sherri and the team.”
“He brings a genuine passion for the industry that is contagious and I’m thrilled to welcome him back to where it all began,” stated Sherri Potter, Worldwide President of Technicolor Post Production.
Ensby’s notable credits include Lady in the Van with cinematographer Andrew Dunn, BSC, Allegiant with cinematographer Florian Ballhaus, ASC, Johnny English Strikes Again with cinematographer Florian Hoffmeister, BSC, Mary Queen of Scots with cinematographer John Mathieson, BSC and mini series Quiz for ITV directed by Stephen Frears.
