Electric Theatre Collective has brought in colourist Luke Morrison to its London office as Head of Colour.
Morrison joins Electric’s colour team that includes Jason Wallis, Lewis Crossfield, Kaitlyn Battistelli, Ruth Wardell, Mathieu Caplanne and Tim Smith.
Morrison joins from The Mill after spending the past few years setting up the colour department at the company’s Chicago office, where he led their team and brought through up-and-coming colour talent.
To date he has worked with brands including JEEP, Mercedes-Benz, Beats, and most recently Dollar Shave Club, and has graded for directors such as Wally Pfister, Pete Riski, Mark Romanek and Ian Pons Jewell.
Morrison has picked up multiple AICE Awards during his career, including a win in the Colour Grading: Over 90 Seconds category for his 2018 Canadian Olympic Committee “Be Olympic” spot directed by Ian Pons Jewell.
Morrison said: “Working with and nurturing talent is something that I’m really passionate about, so seeing how Electric holds this as one of their core values is incredibly exciting. The opportunity to add my experience and help shape the company whilst building upon their impressive work is inspiring. Having known and worked with many Electric members in the past, I’m truly looking forward to working alongside them again and joining the amazing ranks of talent here.”
“The ethos at Electric has always been to hire nice people who are immensely talented,” said Executive Producer and Partner Lee Pavey “Luke is both these things. He adds to our amazing colour roster here in London and in LA, to complete what I believe is the best young colour team anywhere in the world.”
