Acclaimed colourist Paul Harrison has returned to Freefolk London after two successful years in New York City, and it seems it was more than homesickness that drew him back: "As much as I loved New York and all that it had to offer, I was drawn back to London. The creative talent and the type of projects to work on in London is a big factor. I'm looking forward to getting stuck in again whilst still maintaining relationships in New York."
Harrison established Freefolk's grading department in 2012 after long stints at The Mill and MPC, and he is rightly considered one of the best VFX artists in the world.
Part of the reason for his return is the continuing strength of his relationships with London-based directors. As Freefolk co-founder Jason Watts puts it: "His UK client base is so strong that he ended up working remotely on numerous UK projects whilst in NYC so it made sense to stick to one location - there's only one Paul and he can't be in two places at once! He'll still be available for remote grades with his American clients through various partnerships we have established, so it's the best of both worlds."
