The Mill Chicago Expands Colour Department
August 7, 2018 by Screenmag
Oisin O’Driscoll joins Chicago’s expanding colour team from The Mill London where he crafted a diverse body of work since joining in 2014. O’Driscoll has become known for his bold, cutting edge style and he has formed lasting relationships with some of the industry’s hottest talents. He is genuinely passionate about the content of the films he works on and brings an unmatched sense of energy into everything he does, thus making him the perfect addition to the existing team.
Some of his most noteworthy work includes Radiohead’s ‘I Promise’, directed by Michael Marczak, Nike Korea’s ‘Run It’, directed by We Are From LA and, most recently, O’Driscoll graded Adidas’ epic ‘The Answer’ campaign for the 2018 FIFA World Cup directed by Manu Cossu out of Iconoclast.
Another key creative highlight for O’Driscoll was grading the BAFTA award-winning, ‘Home’, a powerful 20-minute short film to address the refugee crisis, working with Somesuch and BBH London.
O’Driscoll joins the colour team in Chicago which includes Mikey Pehanich, a native Chicagoan, who has been with The Mill for over five years and is an established colourist in the Midwest market. Pehanich’s portfolio has grown in recent years with work for Allstate, Samsung, Marriott and Buick on his reel. He is an exceptionally gifted creative with a true zeal for his craft. Pehanich and O’Driscoll are set to make a hugely talented and dedicated creative team and will seamlessly cater to all aspects of the market.
Carl Phillips, Managing Director of The Mill’s Chicago studio adds, ‘We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Oisin into the fold to work alongside Mikey. I worked with Oisin in London and he is a truly exceptional talent. The addition of such a stellar creative artist allows us to further strengthen our world-class offering for Colour. These are exciting times for Mill Chicago.’
