Feature film and broadcast grading outfit Dirty Looks has appointed John Claude to its team.
Claude has 20 years post production experience in Soho and has DI graded with directors including Mike Leigh, Kenneth Branagh and Jonathan Glazer. His broadcast credits include Black Mirror, Luther and Poldark.
He has worked with Dirty Looks as a freelancer before and begins his full- time appointment working with Shane Meadows on his upcoming Channel4 series The Virtues.
John Claude said ‘Ever since collaborating with Tom on Under the Skin back in 2013 I’ve always enjoyed grading at Dirty Looks. Their 4K DI theatre is one of the best in Soho and I’m thrilled to be joining their friendly team full time. Their new remote grading pipeline is a very interesting approach, an innovative way to work.’
Company Director, Tom Balkwill said ‘I’ve been friends with John for 15 years, working on various projects with him throughout this time. It’s an honour to have his creative approach and grading talent available to us in-house. He will be based in our suites in Soho but also for upcoming projects over at our DI theatre in Brussels, too.’
Claude’s recent credits include upcoming films Ray and Liz (shot by Daniel Landin) and Pin Cushion (shot by Nicola Bailey, both projects graded at Dirty Looks). In addition, he recently completed grading independent feature films Been So Long, In Fabric, Apostasy and Lean On Pete.
