Colorist Reel 2019 - Sally Shamas
Play Video


I'm a lebanese-german, Berlin based digital colorist.  You usually find me HBB_Clr_Studio in my  dark room in Neukölln, working on commercials, documentaries, features, short films, art film installations or music videos.

Parallel to my studies in computer engineering, I started working as an editor in 2006 in Beirut for 4 years. I was the first trained digital image technician (D.I.T.) in Beirut on the RED camera in 2010 where i also worked as a camera operator (first and second camera assistant).

In 2011, fascinated by the dark room, i got initiated as a colorist by 4 wonderful international colorists from various backgrounds, (argentinian colorist Nano Morantes, french colorist Aurelie Laumont, taiwanese colorist Diane Kuo and lebanese colorist Shirine Sinno consecutively. Watching them work, i learned to have an open approach to colors and gained quiet an inside on the many aspects of getting a grading job done. I graded projects on Assimilate Scratch and Autodesk Lustre  for different agencies like Leo Burnett, Grey worldwide etc..

In the last years, I've had the pleasure of working with many talented film makers in countries throughout Europe and the Middle East. See the sections 'selected work' and 'other projects' for an overview.
