Tim Kartiala

Tim began his career at the Post Group in Hollywood. He quickly became adept in the art of transferring and coloring both film and file-based projects.  Tim was a sought after dailies colorist, hand-picked to join the Universal team.  Seeing his gift for timing, Tim’s clients pushed for him to be moved up. StudioPost responded by putting Tim through Lustre training, and rewarding him with a chair as a Final Colorist.

Tim’s experience in production brings valuable insight and point of view, enhancing his ability to work with Directors, Producers and DP’s, bringing their vision to life on the screen.
