Laura is a Baselight colourist, with a background in on-line editing using Avid Symphony.

Laura’s love for colour grading began at a young age when she first was introduced to photo editing using Adobe Photoshop. The passion continued into University when she discovered Apple Color and undertook a dissertation on Post Production Techniques, focusing heavily on colour grading. The resulting short film created as part of her final year project won Laura an award at her University’s graduate exhibition, judged by industry professionals. From there, Laura was invited to come to London for work experience at ENVY Post Production by one such judge, and subsequently began her career in the television industry.

Laura worked her way through the ranks at ENVY between 2009-2016 and left as an experienced on-line editor and colourist. She then spent the following few years at a smaller post house continuing her work with a variety of clients on a broad spectrum of content including broadcast television in the entertainment, documentary and factual genres, commercials, short films and music videos. Laura has since embarked on a freelance venture to build on and improve her skills, as well as to expand her portfolio of work.

Laura is passionate about what she does. Her combination of technical knowledge, creativity and drive mean that she will always go the extra mile to achieve the best possible results for clients. Laura is happy working autonomously, but is also a great collaborator and believes some of the best results are achieved when working closely with clients. Laura thrives under pressure and loves a challenge, because she tends to learn something new along the way; which adds to her ever growing experience.
