Freefolk’s Head of Colour, Paul Harrison, is returning to the post outfit’s Soho studio after a two year stint at Freefolk’s New York offshoot.
Freefolk has now decided to close the New York office and focus on its London operation.
Starting his career at The Mill, then MPC, before establishing the Grading department at Freefolk in 2012, Harrison has worked with some of the industry’s leading Directors and DOP’s, including James Rouse, Arno Salter, MJ Delaney, Megaforce, Noam Murro, Jaron Albertin , Frederik Bond, Traktor, and Guy Ritchie.
As well at the return of Harrison, co-founder and Managing Director Justine White has stepped down with Fi Kilroe and Vittorio Giannini taking over as joint MD/EPs.
Formerly Head of Production and Executive Producer respectively, Kilroe and Giannini both started their careers at The Mill, Giannini moved on to become Director of Production at MPC whilst Kilroe worked in production before heading up the production department at The Mill.
Co-founder and Creative Director, Jason Watts commented, “It’s brilliant to have Paul back with us in London, his UK client base is so strong that he ended up working remotely on numerous UK projects whilst in NYC so it made sense to stick to one location – there’s only one Paul and he can’t be in two places at once! He’ll still be available for remote grades with his American clients through various partnerships we have established, so it’s the best of both worlds.”
New joint Managing Director Vittorio Giannini says: “In the past year, with both launching our Emmy winning and twice BAFTA nominated longform department and some pretty big commercial projects, we are experiencing an extremely busy time in London so it makes sense to really concentrate our services and have the best talent under one roof.”
