Shanna Maurizi began her art career in a black and white darkroom as a teenager, and has been experimenting with images ever since. After earning an MFA in Film she apprenticed in the edit suite and was introduced to color grading at Modern Video Film and VideoArts in San Francisco. In the wake of the dot com crash she relocated to Los Angeles and then to New York where she began color work for broadcast, grading for VH1, Animal Planet, MTV, Discovery, the History Channel as well as documentaries and features for theatrical release.
Shanna’s work as a colorist is consistently informed by her visual art career and an engagement with the language of images. She brings nearly two decades of experience with photochemical processes and color theory as well as a depth of technical expertise to the color suite. Her rigorous creative approach has led to rewarding collaborations with many directors, creatives and cinematographers as she has steadily grown her skills and client base in NYC.
