Colorist Edwin Metternich has relocated to Framestore’s new Chicago office, which opened in May, from the company’s London studio. Metternich joined Framestore as a runner in 2007, moving quickly into the color team as an assistant and progressing into grading after only a couple of years.
Metternich has worked on many of projects, including Framestore’s first video game VFX job Guitar Hero Live and The Eye for Audi. He has also worked on some independent film projects, including Blood Cells for British directing duo Joseph Bull and Luke Seomore, Jangbar with turner-nominated artist Zarina Bhimji, and BAFTA award-winning British Short Film Operator. His client base includes Speedo, Absolut, Barclays and Microsoft.
“Finding a talented colorist to help launch a new office and represent a brand like Framestore is certainly a tall order,” explains EP Krystina Wilson. “The goal was to find someone who speaks the unique language of color and possesses both the skillset and the personality to communicate effectively with clients. Someone who brings a level of talent that would attract people to our Framestore offering and most importantly — someone who would continue to inspire and lead our team internally as we grew.”
