Framestore’s London-based colourist Edwin Metternich has relocated to the company’s newly-opened Chicago office.
Metternich joined Framestore as a runner in 2007, moving quickly into the Colour team as an assistant and progressing into grading after two years.
He has worked on various projects including Framestore’s first video game vfx job ‘Guitar Hero Live’, ‘The Eye’ for Audi and frequent collaborations with award-winning agencies and production companies. He was named by Little Black Book as a Top Colourist to Watch in 2015 and nominated for the Kinsale Sharks Best Colourist in a Short Film in 2016 and Best Colourist in a Music Video in 2017.
His has also worked on independent film projects including ‘Blood Cells’ for British directing duo Joseph Bull and Luke Seomore, ‘Jangbar’ with turner-nominated artist Zarina Bhimji, and BAFTA award-winning British Short Film, ‘Operator’. His client base includes brands such as Speedo, Absolut, Barclays, and Microsoft.
“Finding a talented Colorist to help launch a new office and represent a brand like Framestore is certainly a tall order. The goal was to find someone who speaks the unique language of color and possesses both the skillset and the personality to communicate effectively with clients. Someone who brings a level of talent that would attract people to our Framestore offering and most importantly – someone who would continue to inspire and lead our team internally as we grew. To say we ‘lucked out’ to have Edwin officially join us is an understatement,” said Krystina Wilson, Executive Producer
