NEW HEAD OF COLOUR FOR ELECTRIC THEATRE
17 July 2018

Award-winning colourist Luke Morrison has joined the Electric Theatre Collective as their new Head of Colour after being drawn to the role by Electric's stellar reputation for developing new talent.

Morisson is highly experienced and has spent the last few years working for The Mill in the US, where he was instrumental in setting up their Chicago office.

Morisson's skills have made him a real star of the grading world and he has won multiple AICE awards including 'Color Grading – 90 Seconds or Under' and 'Best of Midwest' gongs for his work on 'Be Olympic' for the Canadian Olympic Committee.


There's further evidence of his golden touch in a recent piece of work for Dollar Shave Club (below) which was another collaboration with Ian Pons Jewell. Its surreal shift of scenario has benefited hugely from Morrison's expertise and light touch.


He adds to our amazing colour roster here in London and in LA, to complete what I believe is the best young colour team anywhere in the world.

 ”

Part of Morrison's role at The Mill involved nurturing up-and-coming talent so it's not surprising that he's attracted to a company like Electric which has such a plethora of young talent: "Working with and nurturing talent is something that I'm really passionate about, so seeing how Electric holds this as one of their core values is incredibly exciting."


Lee Pavey is understandably delighted to have landed such a major talent: "The ethos at Electric has always been to hire nice people who are immensely talented.

"Luke is both these things. He adds to our amazing colour roster here in London and in LA, to complete what I believe is the best young colour team anywhere in the world."
