Utilizing a strong eye for story-centric visual aesthetics, Tashi combines both technical and artistic strengths to enhance feature films, commercials, short form, and episodic productions.
 
In today’s fast-paced post-production environment colorists need a rich understanding of visual effects and motion picture imaging science to produce creative results quickly and effectively.
