Meet The Members
I am a colorist living in central KY. I am a Film Production major from Asbury University, and I have experience coloring numerous short films, music videos, and documentaries. I have lived my whole life in North Africa, and I got into doing colorist work from cinematography and editing.
Graduated in Architecture, Analog and Digital Photography afterwards, I've begun grading in 2014. Over the last few years I've been passionately working as colourist in Vietnam, Russia, Switzerland and Italy on feature films, commercials, documentaries and Tv Series.
I am a colorist based in Montreal. I used to be a DIT on major production shooting here. I am also co-owner of a post-house.

Hello! My name is Iheb Arfaoui. More Than five years of experience as Video Editor & Colorist.
I am a independent colorist with 3 years of experience in Los Angeles. The bulk of my portfolio is distributed features, although I sometimes have opportunities in TV, internet and short form projects. I enjoy learning new color techniques and finding new ways to work more efficiently. My strengths are correcting and grading difficult footage. I learned under the mentorship of Josh Tessier, former technicolor colorist. I also help produce projects under a sister company, Turbo Panda Productions.
