London — MPC’s Richard Fearon, a London Film School graduate, became a full-time colorist back in 2006 when the company he was with (Blue Post) asked him to go to Mumbai to grade commercials.
The move made sense. He was trained as a junior — grading promos and short films. “Luckily for me, back then people were still shooting mainly on 16mm and 35mm film, which gave me a great base to build upon on as a colorist.”
When Fearon returned from Mumbai after six weeks, he had gained invaluable experience that could only be found in a color grading suite and on real-world jobs.
