Colorist Edwin Metternich Relocates to Framestore's Chicago office

Colorist Edwin Metternich has re-located and joined the Chicago office of Framestore from London, the company announced this week.

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 short years. He has been an integral part of the Color Department in London and is excited to join Framestore’s newest office.

He has worked on a multitude of projects including Framestore’s first video game VFX job ‘Guitar Hero Live’, ‘The Eye’ for Audi and frequent collaborations with award-winning agencies and production companies. He was acknowledged by Little Black Book as a Top Colorist to Watch in 2015 and nominated for the Kinsale Sharks Best Colorist in a Short Film in 2016 and Best Colorist in a Music Video in 2017.

His range of work also includes a selection of independent film projects, notably 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. He has passionately collaborated with a collection of highly talented directors and has a strong client base including brands such as Speedo, Absolut, Barclays, and Microsoft.

“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," said Krystina Wilson, Executive Producer. "To say we 'lucked out' to have Edwin officially join us is an understatement.”
