Pleasant Post has partnered with freelance colorist Tristan Kneschke in order to expand its digital color services for commercials, music videos, and long-form content. 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 system to complement its other postproduction services.
Working on Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve color correction system and a state-of-the-art OLED mastering monitor, Kneschke will deliver the high-end color work that clients have come to expect from other, much higher-end equipment. “We’re lucky to be partnering with an artist as talented as Tristan,” Pleasant Post EP Sarah Roebuck said. “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.”
Kneschke, who is also an offline editor, brings a long history working with top-tier clients, including spots for Pepsi, Trojan, Cheerios, Citibank, Converse, Budweiser, Louis Vuitton, Nike, Microsoft Zune, and Google. 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,” Kneschke said. “I’m psyched that I’m working on much better creative than ever before.”
