The Mill, a Technicolor Creative Studio, has announced the addition of Katie Dymmock (Colorist, London), Kenya Agunloye (Producer, New York), and Elodie Ichter (Senior Colorist, New York).
As the global color network continues to expand, the three will focus on growth opportunities and the development of The Mill’s color offering. They will be part of the existing international team of colorists’ mission of “bringing creative visions to life.”
Katie Dymmock is an award-winning colorist who has spent the previous 4 years forging her craft at Coffee & TV. In that time, she has quickly established herself as one of the industry’s exciting new talents, winning ‘Best new Colorist’ at the Kinsale Shark awards. With a background in Photography and a degree in Visual Effects, Katie’s love of image manipulation led her to the world of grading where she strives for outstanding use of color in storytelling. Renowned for her prowess in fashion and beauty grading, her diverse portfolio of work extends to iconic brands such as Adidas, Dior, Lacoste, Nike, Monlcer, Mercedes, Sky and Charlotte Tilbury.
Mill London colorists, Philip Hambi and Peter Oppersdroff, are thrilled to welcome Katie to the team. Phil is particularly impressed with Katie’s craft: “It’s incredibly exciting to have someone join the team with so much drive and enthusiasm to achieve great things. Her diverse skill set, mature palette and nuanced touch will really complement what we already have going on and help us achieve our ambitions here at the Mill.” Peter is also looking forward to Katie joining the team: “Creativity and collaboration are the foundations on which this department is built & Katie fits into that philosophy perfectly. We relished the challenge of reigniting the Color spark at The Mill together.”
