Sr. colorist Chris Rodgers is joining Encore London, adding to Deluxe’s international roster of world-class color grading talent.
Rodgers has been a fixture in the London post scene for many years and boasts extensive grading experience. Prior to joining Encore, Rodgers was at Molinare, having previously worked at Splice, where he helped launch their color grading department. Rodgers has graded numerous high profile projects, across both TV and theatrical genres. His recent credits include The League of Gentlemen, Class, The Last Kingdom, Doctor Who and Fungus the Bogeyman (which earned him a BAFTA TV Craft nomination). He recently completed an eight-part mini-series The Widow for Amazon and ITV, which was graded in both SDR and HDR.
Encore director of operations Johnny Whitehead described Rodgers as “a hugely talented and creative grader, as well as a technical innovator.”
Rodgers brings a deep knowledge of color finishing techniques to Deluxe, including the nuances of working on HDR projects. Based in Encore London’s Wardour Street location, Rodgers joins the global team of Deluxe colorists, who out of locations in Los Angeles, New York, Vancouver, Toronto, Madrid and Barcelona are responsible for many of the studio blockbusters, independent film favorites and high-profile episodic series. In addition to final HDR and SDR color, Deluxe’s London facility also provides dailies color (including UHD dailies), online editorial and sound post services.
