Andrew Francis

Supervising Digital Colorist

Technicolor Los Angeles Colorists

Andrew’s career in film began at age 19, when he worked as a runner at VTR, the leading commercial post facility in London’s SoHo. With a love of art dating back to his childhood in South London and his college study in fine arts, Andrew’s inevitable interest in color grading took hold. In 1999, he helped start the first digital intermediate post department at Kodak’s Cinesite (Europe). This afforded him the opportunity to work with pioneering technology from its infancy and to collaborate with the best technicians and filmmakers in the industry, including the late and truly great colorist, Luke Rainey.

After years of freelance experience, including Framestore's early DI house, Andrew moved to Amsterdam to assist a new company, Filmmore, in the inception of its digital intermediate department. With determination and a grueling schedule, Filmmore became a huge success and continues to be the standard in Holland and arguably, continental Europe. In 2009, Andrew assumed an associate colorist's position at EFilm. There, he collaborated with Steven J. Scott, allowing him to work on big-budget Hollywood films. Just shy of a five-year tenure, Andrew relocated to New York to continue as a colorist with the Deluxe/Company 3 brands.

After his tenancy at Deluxe and Company 3, Andrew decided to join startup Sixteen19 to build their new digital intermediate department. With the same recipe of blood, sweat and tears, Andrew helped build this venture from the ground up. Andrew is now looking forward to playing an important role at Technicolor, Los Angeles. Andrew has had the good fortune to work with award-winning cinematographers and directors, helping to further their narratives, with color.
