Mark Gethin

Colorist Reel

Multi award-winning colorist Mark Gethin has been an instrumental creative force at MPC for nearly 15 years, originally in London and then as part of the team that founded the Los Angeles studio in 2008. As US Creative Director, he leads MPC’s color grading teams in Los Angeles and New York, working via a dedicated digital infrastructure that allows real-time remote viewing in HD. He is a longtime collaborator with directors John Hillcoat and Adam Berg, as well as cinematographers Linus Sandgren and Greig Fraser, to name a few.

Mark has set the look and feel of many exquisite commercials, films and TV series—from iconic spots for Stella Artois and Sony Paint, directed by Jonathan Glazer, to Halo 3 “The Life” directed by Rupert Sanders. Among his more recent highlights are the VW commercial “America,” directed by Benito Montorio, Samsung “Ostrich,” directed by Matthijs Van Heijningen and HP Studios’ “The Wolf” series with Christian Slater, directed and shot by Lance Acord. Mark has graded well over 30 Super Bowl spots since being stateside, including Coca-Cola “America The Multicultural” by John Hillcoat, which was shown during the big game in 2014 and again this year. Recent feature work includes Mike Mills’ 20th Century Women and John Hillcoat’s Triple 9.
