The Mill has expanded its remote colour grading offering to encompass Boston and New England, partnering with acclaimed Boston-based production and post-production facility ELEMENT Productions.
The Mill’s award-winning global team of colourists will be able to offer their services to anyone based in the New England area through a dedicated suite within ELEMENT. The virtual outpost will allow clients to see their projects graded and offer feedback live, with the choice and flexibility to select any colourist on The Mill’s roster, regardless of location. This remote capability enables The Mill to collaborate on large campaigns across multiple studios, or simply connect an artist in one location to any Mill suite, project room or remote partner worldwide. Currently the ELEMENT suite is set up to handle colour jobs, however through this connection 2D, Design and VFX work can also be provided.
The Mill’s Group Colour Director Dee Allen comments, “We’re truly excited to be expanding our global colour offering and breaking into the Boston market. The New England area is full of fantastic creative opportunities, and through this partnership we’re thrilled to be of service to the creative community there. Like The Mill, ELEMENT pride themselves in creating visually stunning and excellent work, meaning they are the perfect match for our Boston based outpost. Together, we are looking forward to generating top-quality content with unmatched services.”
Matthew O’Rourke, Executive Producer at ELEMENT adds, “ELEMENT has always stood for premium content and so we continuously look for ways to provide that to our clients and partners. When the opportunity arose to partner with The Mill, we felt that it was a great match for us to bring the ultimate best in the business for color grading under the ELEMENT roof and into the Boston market.”
Kristen Kearns, Executive Producer at ELEMENT adds, “The ELEMENT facility was actually influenced by The Mill’s design aesthetic and now we can actually offer their services. We’ve been offering post capabilities since the founding of the company, however, this partnership provides us a direct porthole to the best color artists in the world at The Mill and is an incredible complement to our existing talent.”
