Jill Bogdanowicz was among the very first people to use digital finishing tools to color A-list theatrically-released films. The highly in-demand colorist has since been a major name in digital color grading for features, commercials and television programming. Jill worked at many of the top post houses in the industry prior to joining Company 3 in 2014 and she has brought her unique talent to major projects for filmmakers such as Clint Eastwood, Wes Anderson, Alex Proyas and many others. Jill brings her unique vision and considerable technical prowess to every job — studio tentpole features, solid and successful commercial campaigns and popular television series alike.
Jill’s recent commercial work includes strong spots for major clients, including Target’s holiday campaigns and RE/MAX realty and a series of memorable humorous spots for the Dish Network. Her feature coloring can be seen in movies such as the splashy, romantic musical Mama Mia! Here We Go Again, the action/thriller John Wick: Chapter 2, the fun, escapist Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows and the female re-imagining of a classic comedy, Ghostbusters: Answer the Call. And her superlative work on television projects can be found on Netflix’s family drama, Bloodline, the clever science fiction series, Altered Carbon (also Netflix) and ABC’s spy series Agent Carter, concerning a strong female protagonist.
Jill comes from a family of imaging experts — her father spent his career as a top-level scientist at Eastman Kodak’s Rochester, NY headquarters and her sister is also a successful digital colorist. Jill majored in Art and minored in Physics at the State University of New York, Geneseo. She also paints large format oils and watercolors, which she has exhibited at a number of high-profile galleries.
Jill is delighted to see more women in the industry joining her at the highest levels of color grading as well as the increase in the number of female filmmakers shooting and directing the projects she’s coloring. Recent examples include cinematographers Michelle Lawler and Bérénice Eveno and directors Adria Tennor and Carolina Costa.
