What I Do
Luke Ross is a professional freelance colourist based in Wellington, New Zealand. He graduated from the New Zealand Broadcasting School in 2018 and travelled to the United Kingdom where he spent two years working on Baselight as a Colourist Assistant. He worked on independent feature films and television drama at Lipsync Post in London, built a successful YouTube channel \’lukerosspost\’ and worked on AppleTV+ and Netflix docu-series at Films@59 in Bristol.
