NEW YORK—As part of its ongoing effort to grow its resources for motion
picture finishing, Post Factory NY, a SIM Group company, has hired Colin Davis
as DI Producer. Davis, who arrives from a similar position with Company 3, New
York, will oversee feature film and documentary projects undergoing editorial
conforming, color grading and other finishing services. He will also be
involved in developing the facility’s workflow procedures and service offering.
In his first project for Post Factory NY, Davis oversaw final color grading and
deliverables for the upcoming Lionsgate release American Ultra.

“Colin’s arrival is indicative of our commitment to taking
our finishing services to the next level,” said Post Factory NY Senior Vice President of Operations Kim Spikes. “We’ve been
very successful in servicing feature projects through the off-line phase; now
we want to carry those projects through the end of post production.” Spikes
added that Post Factory NY plans to make further improvements to its technical
infrastructure and expects to make more staff additions, including colorists
and conforming editors with feature experience.
Davis had been a DI Producer at Company 3 for the past
five years, with credits including The
Secret Life of Walter Mitty
, Foxcatcher
and Spike Lee’s Oldboy, among
others
He produced DI services for Me
and Earl and the Dying Girl
, winner of the Grand Jury Prize and Audience
Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, as well as the documentary Brooklyn Castle, an Audience Award-winner
at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival.
In discussing his move to Post Factory, Davis said he
was attracted by the opportunity to help build a department to serve the needs
of Hollywood studios and New York’s fast growing film industry. “We’re looking
to ramp up in order to accommodate more studio releases and other feature
projects,” he said. “More feature work is coming to New York and we want to
take advantage of it.”
