Mill Colour is to broaden its offering to include creative Digital Intermediate work for feature length projects.
The Mill is best known for working in the advertising, games and music industries.
Group Colour Director at The Mill, Dee Allen, said: "This is a natural and very exciting progression for us. Our team collaborates with world class Directors and DP’s and this allows us to extend the collaboration into features.”
The new initiative is spearheaded at The Mill’s New York Studio by Mill Colourist and Director of DI, Damien Van Der Cruyssen. Van Der Cruyssen has previously worked on features “Clown” (directed by Jon Watts), “Blue Caprice” (directed by Alexandre Moors) and Mick Rock documentary “Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock” (directed by Barney Clay). He said: “Our passion is for the artistic side of the DI process. Being able to work on both commercials and movies is wonderful for a Colourist. The variety helps you approach all different kinds of work, with each one giving you new creative skills that you can apply to the other.”
DI colour work will be also available The Mill in London, Los Angeles and Chicago. Filmmakers can work from any Technicolor location across the globe, either using The Mill’s remote network or by flying the talent into, for example, Montreal, Toronto or Vancouver.
Mill Colour’s latest feature work can be seen in “Barry”, a biopic of Barack Obama set during his time as a college student in New York. The film is directed by Vikram Gandhi and coloured by Van Der Cruyssen.
