When Jenny Montgomery isn’t assisting the top-level colorists at Company 3, she’s building a stunning reel of work as a colorist in her own right, including Nike’s compelling “Invent Yourself” campaign, spots for Olay Whips and music videos for breaking artists, such as Carlie Hanson.
Jenny has always been deeply involved in the visual arts since her teen years growing up in the small community of Michigan City, Indiana, and she continues to be an avid photographer in what little spare time she has. After earning her BA in Photography from Chicago’s Columbia College, Jenny realized her dream of living in New York, first helping to curate work at the J. Cacciola Gallery and then to Company 3, where she developed her technical expertise and aesthetic sensibilities.
Her work includes the beautiful and kinetic “Will Finds a Way” spot for Under Armour, which stars Dwaine Johnson and focusses on multiple sporting events; Nike’s evocative “Re-invent Yourself” commercials and music videos for young artists such as Parquet Courts and Carlie Hanson. She also colored powerful films, including writer/director Mariama Diallo’s provocative “Hair Wolf” (which won the Jury Award for short fiction film at this year’s Sundance Film Festival) and feature, Flames, directed by Zefrey Throwell and Josephine Decker, which premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.
Jenny always finds satisfaction working with women filmmakers, including Diallo and Decker, cinematographers Charlotte Hornsby and Autumn Eakin, the directing duo known as Similar but Different — Dani Girdwood and Charlotte Fassler – and many more. Living in New York and working with such talent is everything she’d ever dreamed. “It’s magical,” she muses.
