Orla O’Brien – colourist

At Blueberry we are very privileged to meet talented people who inspire us on a weekly basis. This week the spotlight is on colourist, Orla O’Brien.

After studying Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins, Orla started her career at the award winning VFX Post House, Framestore. During her time there Orla assisted the technical director and became camera equipment supervisor before discovering her passion for colour grading. She then moved into the DI department where she worked on a number of Hollywood blockbusters including; ‘The Last King of Scotland’. ‘Batman’, ‘Doomsday’ and ‘Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day’.

Orla is very skilled in an array of grading platforms including Telecine scanning, Baselight, Apple Colour and Davinci resolve. Recent clients include Salt TV, R/GA and lots of work with Kream. Recent colourist credits include Costa, Honda, EE, TFL, Royal Mail and Natwest to name just a few. 

After working in Dublin based post house Egg for four years, Orla moved back to London and decided to use her experience to take the leap into the world of freelance. We think she’s brilliant, talented in the art of playing with colour and tones, to create mood and texture in visual images. We believe she’s an alchemist in training…
