Post house Okay Studio has hired Katie Dymmock as Colourist.

Previously named Kinsale Shark’s Best New Colourist, Dymmock kickstarted her career under the mentorship of Simona Cristea, first at Rushes and then at Coffee & TV, before moving on to The Mill.

Career highlights include music promos such as New Rules ‘Ghost Town’ and Hendrix Harris ‘It’s Not You’, UKMVA nominated for Best Colour Grading, and fully CG car commercials for the likes of Mercedes x Riot and Volvo, shortlisted at the Berlin Commercial Awards.

Leading the grading team at Okay Studio is Franky Chadwick, recently promoted to Colour EP. Colourist Alex O’Brien joined Okay last year.

Katie Dymmock, Colourist, comments: “I’m truly grateful to be joining the colour team at OkayStudio. Junior Colourist Alex O’Brien is not only a talented colourist with extensive experience in the industry, but also an incredibly kind and passionate person. The cherry on top is Franky joining, it’s been all laughs and smiles since my first meeting with her, and between the four of us I’m really looking forward to fostering more of OkayStudio’s honest and supportive spirit within the colour team.”

Franky Chadwick, Colour EP, comments: “I have loved working freelance with the OkayStudio team for the past few years, so the opportunity to come aboard and expand the colour department is so exciting. The team all have tremendous passion for their work and it’s reflected in the calibre of projects coming out. Following last year’s steady growth, it felt like the perfect time to bring in another colourist. I’ve followed Katie’s work for years and she’s one of the most talented and dedicated colourists I know. Her joining to broaden what is already a fantastic department makes me incredibly excited for what is to come.”

Nikolaj Belzer, Co-Founding Partner and MD, adds: “When looking for a new colourist, it was important to us to find someone whose work complements the projects and clients that we have built, as well as creatively elevate and bring in another level of seniority to the department. Katie brings all of this in spades, as well as an infectious energy, a generous creative spirit and a fun and friendly personality that fits in beautifully with our existing team. We also see so many creative synergies between Katie and some of our other artists, particularly in editorial, so we are excited to see some of the magic that they create together.”
