Colorist Paul Galati is joining production and post house Optimus. With the move, Optimus will once again be offering in-house color correction.
“We’ve seen the color landscape in Chicago shift significantly over the past few years,” said Optimus EP/managing director Brian Hrastar. “We’ve also been following Paul’s career for awhile, and the timing was right to once again internally integrate color into our finishing workflow.”
With more than a decade of postproduction experience, Galati has focused on color correction for eight years, grading music videos, features and commercials. Most recently, he was senior colorist at Periscope Post & Audio. His career began as an assistant editor at Cutters. He eventually moved over to color at Filmworkers and Company 3, and later created Cinema Light Company. He has worked with such agencies as BBDO, DDB, The Escape Pod, Gyro and Leo Burnett.
