Pete provides a level of creativity, craftsmanship and collaboration that can be learned only through years of experience.
Pete has worked with a myriad of color correction systems including every permutation of DaVinci since its inception. His Current tools of choice are a completely portable DaVinci Resolve system including state of the art monitoring and control surface.
Technology supplies his tools, while Pete supplies exclusive talent.
Pete has worked with hundreds of clients on thousands of projects.
Before opening his own shop, “Color By Pete”, he was a colorist at Editel Chicago working on national and international advertising accounts until becoming a partner in Skyview Film and Video where he continued to hone his craft working with A-list clients from Chicago, the Midwest, and, indeed, the world.
After 10 years at Skyview, Pete moved to The Filmworkers Club where he continued to work on advertising accounts as well as feature films, documentaries, archival films and music videos.
