BURBANK, California (December 7, 2022) — FotoKem has announced that two talented final colorists, Jesús Borrego and Ara Thomassian, have joined FotoKem’s Keep Me Posted (KMP).
Los Angeles native Borrego grew up loving art and photography, originally setting his sights on a career in music recording. After earning his degree in Sound Engineering, he made the shift to post production, handling film dailies at Technicolor Hollywood. While there, he became a color assistant, and learned the craft of color grading from senior colorists. Most recently, Borrego has worked as a colorist at Warner Bros. and Light Iron/Panavision. His recent credits include numerous features for Blumhouse (The Visitor, There’s Something Wrong with The Children, and Unseen), and episodic tv such as Crypt TV’s Stereoscope and Sacrifice for BET+. His previous credits include Bosch: Legacy (associate colorist) and Halt and Catch Fire (pre-colorist).
Thomassian has over a decade of experience in color grading and is a member of the Colorist Society International. His recent credits include the documentaries Women in the Front Seat and Zero Gravity, with additional color credits spanning such diverse titles as Empire, Bosch, Next, American Horror Story, What We Do in the Shadows, and the Deadwood movie.
Borrego and Thomassian join a roster of talented artists, producers and technologists based at KMP in Burbank. The FotoKem family of companies includes Keep Me Posted, L.A. Studios, Margarita Mix Hollywood, and Margarita Mix Santa Monica. Headquartered in Burbank, FotoKem also has facilities in Atlanta and New Orleans.
