NO.8 IN COLOUR WITH ALEX GREGORY.
10 August 2021

No.8 have announced grading whizz Alex Gregory as their new head of colour.

Gregory's arrival completes the launch of No.8 Colour - the next step towards world domination for managing director Barny Wright. Or the chance to work alongside a grading maestro, at least.

"From the moment we wanted to launch No.8 Colour, Alex was always top of our list," Wright says. "We have been fans of his work for a while and from the first meeting we knew he was the perfect fit."


I'm really excited about the plans we have in store for the colour team over the next few months and beyond.

 ”

Wright adds: "Alex has an insane level of enthusiasm and passion for the work and his ambition to build something special at No.8 really blew us away. He is also a really nice guy, no ego, and a real collaborator - all values that are a must for us at No.8."

New head of colour Gregory says: "No.8 are in a unique position in the industry. They have a fantastic team in place and are already working on some of the best and most exciting projects around.

"This new position offers me a chance to build a colour department from the ground up. I'm really excited about the plans we have in store for the colour team over the next few months and beyond."
