Kali Bateman and Emily Reid: A Partnership in Colour – The Color Timer Podcast

September 16, 2023

Discover Senior Colorist Kali Bateman's dynamic partnership with her former Assistant, Emily Reid, on this The Color Timer Podcast episode.


The relationship between Colorist and Color Assist and their new venture, ‘ The Colour Suite’.

I worked with Kali Bateman many years ago in Australia, and I jumped at the opportunity to speak with both her and Emily about the relationship between the Colorist and Color Assistant, as well as their new venture The Colour Suite. (Yes, that’s how Color is spelled in other parts of the world!)

“I get upset when I see Color Assists go in and do a conform, and then get ushered away as soon as the action starts.”

  • Music! Music fills the void of the empty gaps in talking. I get it though. Sometimes there are clients that are just an absolute zap of energy and any conversations.

    Well done ladies! All the best! Next time I’m over in QLD I’ll pop in and say hi!
