OkayStudio Adds Alex O’Brien as Junior Colourist

OkayStudio adds to its award winning colour department with the addition of junior colourist Alex O’Brien. Alex joins with a wealth of experience having previously worked at Company3, Black Kite and The Mill. 

Alex’s comments, “As soon as I met Nikolaj and Josh earlier this year, I knew I wanted to work with OkayStudio. What really stood out to me during our initial conversations were the ethos and passion within the studio and obviously the work they're putting out is excellent. I'm really looking forward to working closely with Ruth [Wardell, colourist] and continuing to develop as a colourist.” 

Nikolaj Belzer, founder and MD of OkayStudio, “OkayStudio has forged a reputation for developing the best up and coming talent and Alex is someone we’ve been following for quite a while now. Not only have they built up an incredible amount of experience working alongside some of the best colourists in the business, but they’ve naturally taken on leadership roles in the assisting departments. Alex has slowly but surely put out an impressive slate of work, especially for a colourist that young. We knew there was an immense amount of talent, great taste, and superb technical knowledge but upon meeting Alex it became clear that comes with a personality beaming with curiosity, a hugely creative mind and an incredible work ethic. They have a great level of empathy and are a true team player, which shows in the way they approach the colour grade as part of the filmmaking process - a core value of how we like to work at OkayStudio. ‘Excited’ is probably too small a word to describe how we feel about this latest addition to the OkayColour team. ” 

Josh Sanders, executive producer at OkayStudio, comments, “We are highly selective when bringing new talent into the team and it’s testament to Alex’s ability as a colourist that he fell onto our collective radar. With our demand and client base growing, we needed someone hungry and ready to make a name for themselves. After meeting Alex for the first time, we knew we had found a rising star bursting with passion and ambition. With an impressive portfolio of work already behind him, Alex has the potential to achieve great things.’’
