The Colonie launches color grading division, hires Jennifer Gaida
People on the Move
The Colonie has added colorist Jennifer Gaida to its team. Her hiring marks the launch of the Chicago-based company’s color grading division, rounding out the one-stop editing, design, and postproduction boutique’s full-roster of high-end services and talent.
Gaida exited Energy BBDO’s Flare and officially joined The Colonie staff at the beginning of the year. A previous three-year stint at Utopic honed her skills as both a colorist and editor. Her addition to The Colonie’s team of editors, designers, creative directors, animators, producers, visual effects artists and finishers provides clients with an accessible collective of top-tier talent--all under one roof.
Her credits include color grading broadcast commercials and social media campaigns for a mix of national brands, such as Starbucks, Porsche, Revlon, and Pantene. Gaida has also been called on to color grade a variety of independent projects, including the short films Milk Shake and Networking Lunch, as well as several music videos, such as the recently released “Stayed Down” featuring Twista.
Gaida has settled into The Colonie’s new Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve suite and hit the ground running, completing projects for Perrier, Cresco, La Mer, Walmart, HP, and a Toyota campaign out of Burrell Communications.
“In 2020, we plan to continue building The Colonie’s team of out-of-the-box creative thinkers and providing innovative solutions for every size screen while getting the most out of each budget. Our goal is to keep raising the bar and bringing exceptional talent on board. The addition of Jennifer does just that,” said company partner and sr. editor Brian Sepanik.
