Colorist Paul Harrison: Winning Awards on both sides of the Atlantic

December 7, 2023

Season 1 of The Color Timer Podcast wraps: We chat with Paul Harrison, a colorist renowned for his award-winning short-form work and films.


Experience is the key, but you need persistence to reach that 10,000 hours!

Paul Harrison’s professional journey has covered just about every corner of the industry that could possibly be painted 18% gray. Currently, Paul is the Senior Colorist and Partner at Residence Pictures and has completed the visually stunning The Killing Kind (Paramount +) and The Gallows Pole (BBC).

From humble beginnings as an on-set runner, to learning the dark arts of telecine with a Pandora Pogle, to honing the look of top-notch brands like Guinness, Levi’s, and BMW; Paul shares his insights and his inspiration.

One of the world’s top colorists, Paul Harrison has been continually ranked amongst the top three finishing artists in the UK throughout his career, frequently topping the Televisual Best Colorist polls as well as winning successive BTAA awards for best colorist.

Chatting with Paul feels like chatting with an old friend, he quickly puts you at ease and I would imagine that this is something that would make those long hours in a color session so much easier.

That’s it, this is the last episode of season one. How was it? Do you think there should be a season two? If so, let me know; if not, then absolutely let me know!! It’s been a blast, and I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed making it.
