Grade and Colour

This is one of EGG’s greatest strengths- and we look at it as an exercise in manipulating time and space, through the use of colour.

From matching different takes and angles trying to make things feel as though they are shot at the same time on the same day, to applying a look and making the story clearer.

EGG takes the brief or creative input from the DoP, director, producer and uses state of the art technology and decades of experience to deliver the best version of the material, all the while mindful of the myriad of technical implications of the decisions being made.

Working in DaVici Resolve with advanced control panelusing the state of the art, Netflix and Amazon Studios, approved, Sony BVM X300 4K monitor, allied to our 4K Projector, our suite gives directors and producers using our colour suite a cinematic experience, whatever their content.

The Colour Grading department has worked with every conceivable camera format and delivered countless broadcast TV, Theatrical Feature and adverts projects- in SD, HD, 2K, UHD and 4k.

Our technical infrastructure allied to a 5Gb/s internet connection means that, if you can’t come to the facility you can still do remote grade in real time at EGG. As times and budgets change, this is a service that has been a huge success for our clients based overseas.

Nik is originally from Greece and before coming to Ireland he worked with a wide range of award- winning Directors and DoP's including Theodoros Angelopoulos, Yorgos Lanthimos and Tayfun Pirselimoglu.

Looking to expand his skillset Nik moved to Bollywood. As well as working as a colourist, he acted as a workflow consultant- helping a major studio move from being a Film Lab into the Digital Age, training colourists and introducing colour management at every step of the production chain.

Joining EGG in 2013, Nik is an integral part of every picture project that enters the building- even if they don’t go to Grade. From camera tests, to input into workflows, to the stock in trade of a Colourist and all the way through the delivery of Digital Cinema Prints, Nik brings his years of high- end Workflow, Grade and Delivery experience to bear.
