FilmLight welcomes colourist Andy Minuth

Well-known colourist joins FilmLight to provide seasoned and highly technical support

FilmLight, provider of professional colour grading solutions, has recruited colourist Andy Minuth as Colour Workflow Specialist. He brings a deep technical knowledge of image processing and colour management as well as a long and successful track record in colour grading.

“With Baselight, I feel kind of limitless and incredibly confident,” said Minuth. “Some clients come into the grading session with headaches about particular shots or scenes.

“I am very much looking forward to talking to other creatives around the world, sharing my experience and helping them discover all that Baselight and the rest of FilmLight’s product range can do to help them reach their artistic goals,” he added. “I’m also excited to hear their stories about the productivity of the Baselight Linked Grade (BLG) workflow now that it’s reaching more artists – DITs, editors and compositors – throughout the production process.”

While Minuth will be based in FilmLight’s new office in Munich, he will have a global presence for the company, helping users develop unified colour pipelines and enhance skills wherever they may be located.

“The capabilities of Baselight and FilmLight’s portable, metadata-driven collaborative workflows are now incredibly rich and powerful,” said Mark Burton, head of EMEA sales for FilmLight. “Our customers need to know that we can → continue…
