John Brandon started at Technicolor Vancouver as a Telecine assistant on the first season of Supernatural – and ended his work on the series’ final episodes as lead Dailies Colorist.
In the decade and a half in between, he worked on many of the show’s seasons, gaining technical and trouble-shooting experience on many other projects as well. That experience has made him adept at identifying and solving problems, thinking on his feet to find quick and effective solutions to new and unexpected challenges.
Following Supernatural, John was the Dailies Colorist on Change of Pace, a deeply Canadian film exploring life for a small-town teen in Penticton, British Columbia. Other notable upcoming projects include Under Wraps and Brand New Cherry Flavor, the latter a creatively intense, avant-garde series where Brandon has dealt directly with DIT and production staff as Dailies Operator.
Feature projects of note include Watchmen (2009), as New Media and Telecine Assist; and The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet (2013), where as On-Set Data Management Technician and DIT he had the opportunity to work with his favorite director, Jean-Pierre Jeunet.
John studied film, photography, philosophy and art history in college and university, earning a CEGEP DEC in Liberal Arts, and he runs a successful Patreon-funded podcast and gaming community with friends.
