The Mill Announces Expansion of Remote Grading Network


Last Updated: October 1, 2015 7:19 pm GMT
(October 1, 2015) The Mill is delighted to announce the continued expansion of its award-winning colour grading offering by adding Atlanta and Kansas City to its network and welcomes Industry & Co and 19 Below, respectively.

Our colourists are regarded amongst the best in the business, and through our growing remote network our clients can be connected to all of them. Offering services through virtual outposts like Industry & Co and 19 Below enables clients to set the look
of a grade in one studio and finish it in another as if the colourist is in the same room. This means agencies, directors and directors of photography can work in real-time, remote grading anywhere in the world and allowing our clients the choice and flexibility to handpick the artist and colourist they want.

In addition to colour, the capabilities we offer through our remote partners includes 2D, design and editorial, allowing us to collaborate on large campaigns across multiple studios or simply connect an artist in one location to any Mill suite, project room or remote partner worldwide with a complete remote connection.

The Mill remote network is set up with state-of-the-art monitors that are identically calibrated, run via a dedicated Internet feed and seamlessly stream HD-perfect pictures from grading suites and project rooms.

Jared Yeater, managing director of The Mill in Chicago, comments, “Essentially every service we offer can somehow take advantage of the remote connection we’ve installed. Most notably is colour, where sessions can be held with any of our award-winning colourists from across all of our offices. But likewise, we can do sessions and interact in real-time on projects that involve finishing, large scale VFX, or design utilizing the same setup.”

Thatcher Peterson, executive producer of colour at The Mill in Los Angeles explains, “In expanding our capabilities in Kansas City and Atlanta we’re able to further build and strengthen our client relationships by offering our services across a larger network. We sought to partner with companies that have a strong presence in their communities and generate top-quality content with unmatched services valued by clients. We’ve found those partners in Industry & Co and 19 Below and look forward to many collaborations ahead.”

Our network spans:

London, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago and also across Europe in France (Paris), Germany (Berlin, Düsseldorf, Hamburg), Norway (Oslo) and Portugal (Lisbon), and across the US in Atlanta, Austin, Kansas City, Miami, Portland and Virginia.
