Meet The Colourist: Simon Astbury, Head of Colour, Digital Domain Shanghai

“Be a geek about your industry, cameras, lighting, lenses. Watch movies, ads and everything that’s good. Study art and artists, if only to have common points of reference. Remember that the grading part is only a portion of what makes a good colourist: you’re the host, therapist, barman and ringmaster.

Originally from England, Simon Astbury has developed a love for colour grading through the years and has worked in a wide range of genres, from Oscar-winning films to iconic ad campaigns and pop promos. During this time he has worked with people like Jack Cardiff, Roger Pratt, Tony Kaye, Paul WS Anderson and many more. Today Simon is the Head of Colour at Digital Domain in Shanghai.
