Veteran colorist Mike Sowa has joined Burbank-based post house and film lab Fotokem.
Over a 25-year career, he has collected a string of credits on films including The Jungle Book, Kubo and the Two Strings, Oblivion, Home of the Brave and Orson Welles’ soon-to-be-released Netflix film The Other Side of the Wind.
Sowa joins Fotokem after a stint at Technicolor. Earlier, he worked at facilities including Modern VideoFilm, Universal High Def Center and Laser Pacific. Sowa is a four-time HPA Award nominee and an associate member of the American Society of Cinematographers.
“I look forward to being part of an outstanding group of colorists and one of the most dedicated and knowledgeable technical teams in the industry,” Sowa said Wednesday in a statement.
Added Fotokem chief strategy officer Mike Brodersen: “We are delighted to have Mike as part of our creative services group. His reputation as an artist and collaborator speaks for itself; his mix of personal and technical expertise will fit right into our talented team.”
Sowa joins a Fotokem talent roster that includes Alastor Arnold, David Cole, Mark Griffith, George Koran, Kostas Theodosiou and Walter Volpatto.
