Gareth Spensley has coloured some of the UK’s biggest name episodic dramas including Doctor Who, The Durrells, and the critically acclaimed Killing Eve and Bodyguard.
He joins from Molinare where he established a reputation as a versatile colourist across episodic television and feature films.
He has also applied his talents to an impressive range of features. He recently colored Florian Zeller’s critically acclaimed debut The Father and Wes Anderson’s eagerly anticipated The French Dispatch.
