Encore team has hired senior colorist Mark Wilkins. He will be working out of company’s Hollywood location. This 30-year industry vet has color graded many television series, including Two and Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, The Simpsons and Silicon Valley.
Wilkins comes to Encore, a Deluxe Entertainment Services company, from Technicolor, where he specialized in episodic television and also handled some feature films. He has previously worked with Riot, a former Encore sister company, coloring commercials and music videos, in addition to freelance projects. Currently grading with Blackmagic’s DaVinci Resolve, Wilkins is now back working in the same bay where he colored Doogie Howser, M.D. more than 20 years ago.
“Bill (Encore EVP Bill Romeo) and Deluxe are fostering an intimate, family-like environment at Encore that is conducive to creativity,” Wilkins noted. “It’s a small industry and there are so many great people in the business who really know their stuff. The transition to Encore has been really easy and it has been wonderful to see so many familiar faces again.”
