Jack McGinity is a highly versatile senior colourist working broadly across advertising, narrative, music and fashion. Nike, Louis Vuitton, Mercedes, Virgin Media, ASOS, Sainsbury’s, Balenciaga and Calvin Klein all feature in his varied commercial portfolio. Throughout every grade, he prioritises enhancing the message and emotion of the work. He does this dressed completely in black because he feels it makes him look more arty and he can also disappear on Zoom calls if needed.
As well as appearing on streaming sites such as Netflix, Amazon and Mubi, Jack’s narrative work is regularly awarded at global film festivals, including European Short Film Festival, BFI, Iris, London Short Film Festival, and more, with a notable project being Dawn Shadforth’s BIFA-winning ‘The Big Day’. Last year he was nominated for Best Colour Grading at the UKMVAs.
Jack’s jovial yet professional nature explains his huge number of long-standing relationships with directors including Raine Allen-Miller and Sophie Muller. He has also graded work by esteemed DoPs such as Robbie Ryan, Daniel Landin and Ben Fordesman. When not grading, he enjoys kebab rating and researching the medicinal wonders of bananas. Go figure!
