In a bid to expand its digital color services for commercials, music videos, and long-form content, Pleasant Post has partnered with freelance colorist Tristan Kneschke. After collaborating exclusively with Kneschke for years on a multitude of projects - including recent campaigns for Royal Caribbean, Lenovo and GM - Pleasant Post is bringing him in on a more formal basis to offer its clients a cost-effective color correction solution to complement its full menu of postproduction services.
Working on DaVinci's Resolve hardware and software solution and a state-of-the-art OLED mastering monitor, Kneschke will deliver high-end color work of the caliber that clients have come to expect from much higher-end equipment. "We're lucky to be partnering with an artist as talented as Tristan. Between his skills as a colorist and our competitive rate structure, we're offering an obvious solution for clients who are budget-conscious yet still demand quality, perfection and speed when doing their final color grade," stated Pleasant Post EP Sarah Roebuck.
Kneschke, who is also an offline editor, brings a long history working with top-tier clients, with spots for Pepsi, Trojan Condoms, Cheerios, Citibank, Converse, Budweiser, Louis Vuitton, Nike, Microsoft Zune, and Google to his credit. He has worked with a slew of top-flight agencies including Crispin Porter + Bogusky, McCann Erickson, JWT, Dentsu, Laird+Partners, Digitas and Vice.
"Pleasant Post has always been a forward-thinking company, and as color correction became more affordable, we immediately understood the value of providing the service for our clients," noted Kneschke. "I'm psyched that I'm working on much better creative than ever before."
