Hint Brings Nice Shoes To Kansas City

March 3, 2016 | By

LR-HINT_PRKansas City-based post house Hint has partnered with New York-based Nice Shoes to connect colorists in New York, Chicago and Minneapolis with artists and creatives in Kansas City via Nice Shoes’ Remote Grading service.

“The area that Hint covers is impressive,” said Nice Shoes executive producer Tara Holmes. “Beyond Kansas City and other cities within the bi-state region of Kansas and Missouri, they have clients in San Francisco, Washington DC, Des Moines, Omaha and Lincoln. They’re producing a variety of fantastic work with top agencies and brands, and we’re excited to be a part of it.”

Kansas City clients will have the ability to collaborate with Nice Shoes colorists Phil Choe, Gene Curley, Sal Malfitano, Lenny Mastrandrea, Oscar Oboza, Chris Ryan, Lez Rudge and Ron Sudul as if they were working in the studio with them.

“Technology has made it possible, and we believe that the needs of our clients will be better served if they can have quality color grading and other finishing services right here in KC, without the costs and disruption of traveling,” said Hint CEO Teri Rogers. “Now, the artists at Nice Shoes will become an integrated part of their total post production experience with the benefits of lower costs and a broader talent pool.”

“When we launched this service, it was to meet the needs of clients who previously would travel to New York to work with us,” explained Nice Shoes managing director Justin Pandolfino. “We’ve built a great foothold with that starting point, but now we have the exciting opportunity to collaborate with those clients as well as with new ones. This partnership is not just about convenience, but about uniting talent that has never worked together before, which I hope will spark new creativity between both companies.”
