Postproduction company Cinelicious has welcomed senior colorist Lynette Duensing. She recently returned from a year working abroad in Shanghai. She will be based out of Cinelicious Santa Monica for commercial projects and will lend her eye for grading to long-form work via Cinelicious Hollywood.
“Lynette is a premier talent with incredible experience and an unwavering passion for creating beautiful motion media,” Cinelicious founder Paul Korver said. “This comes through in every project and collaboration, and we are thrilled to have her as a cornerstone of Cinelicious.”
“When considering a move back to the U.S. and my return to Los Angeles, I wanted to find a company I could truly call home,” Duensing said. “Paul and I immediately connected though our shared love of film and a mutual goal of creating the best environment to bring our clients’ work to life, whatever the format. Under Paul’s direction, Cinelicious has become just that place and I am pleased to be a part of the company’s commitment to crafting compelling visuals.”
Most recently senior colorist at Technicolor-SFG in Shanghai, Duensing gained an international perspective and expanded her client base to include directors and agencies from around the world. During her time in Shanghai, she contributed to commercials and branded projects for Chrysler, Fiat, Infiniti, Land Rover, Buick, Ikea, L’Oreal, Nike, Coca-Cola, Sprite, HTC, Motorola, HP, Minute Maid, Kraft Foods, Johnnie Walker and McDonalds.

Some of her commercial credits include projects for Chevrolet, Proctor and Gamble, Nintendo, XBOX, KFC, Budweiser, MillerCoors and Wrigley, as well as Super Bowl spots for Bud Light, Frito Lay, Toyota, Bayer and Go Daddy.
