The Chicago-based editing, design, and postproduction boutique's The Colonie has added colorist Jennifer Gaida to its staff. Gaida recently worked for Energy BBDO’s Flare and officially joined The Colonie staff at the beginning of the year. She also previously worked at Utopic as both a colorist and editor.
Her credits include color grading broadcast commercials and social media campaigns for a mix of national brands, such as Starbucks, Porsche, Revlon, and Pantene. Gaida has also been called on to color grade a variety of independent projects, including the short films, Milk Shake and Networking Lunch, as well as several music videos, such as the recently released Stayed Down featuring Twista.
