Post house The Lab Sydney has announced that world-class colourist Marcus Timpson has joined their team direct from Rushes in the UK.
The appointment was the result of an exhaustive worldwide search, according to The Lab. Omnilab Media executive director and head of The Lab Lewis Pullen explained, "We have made some major positive changes and additions at the Lab recently, one of which was the installation of a multi-million dollar Digital Intermediate (DI) infrastructure complete with colour grading theatrette. We have been looking for a top commercials colourist who would further compliment our telecine team for some time, one that had extensive experience with the C-Reality and Spirit telecine chains and could work with our new Baselight colour grading systems. This was a very big ask and I'm pleased to say that Marcus brings all of the above with him to the Lab."
Timpson began his career in the post industry at the London house Soho 601 where he discovered a great passion for telecine. He then joined The Mill where he continued to establish himself as a sought after colourist, until moving to the world renowned and award-winning Rushes telecine team.
Timpson's credits read like a who's who of the TVC world including Dolce & Gabanna, Levis, Nintendo, Playstation, Smirnoff, Stella Artois, Sony, Suzuki, Toyota, Vodafone, VW and Wrigleys. Similarly his work with music artists and music videos include Madonna, U2, Arctic Monkies, Avalanches, Groove Armada and Jamiroquai to name a few.
With a focus on commercials, Timpson will join the Lab's telecine team which is headed up by Dwaine Hyde. The team also includes Vincent Taylor and Head of DI, Al Hansen."
