COLOUR GRADING & FINISHING EAST LONDON
At Wash, we handle grading, finishing and playouts. We pride ourselves on using state of the art equipment, modern workflows and talented operators.
Suite 1 has 4K HDR capability with comfortable seating for several people.
It is equipped with a full DaVinci Resolve advanced panel set up with grade one OLED monitoring. The client screen is 4K HDR 65 inch and is OLED for the maximum contrast ratio and accuracy. We use Genelec speakers so that clients can experience the finished article in fantastic sound quality.
Suite 2 has grade one monitoring with Autodesk Flame, DaVinci Resolve and Tangent Element panels. The grading monitor is fully calibrated and the suite is suitable for both grading and online flame finishing. Audio is provided by Genelec monitor speakers.
Both suites are available for hire with and without a colourist/operator.
For clients we have fast Wi-Fi, food and drink on-site and a separate working space.
Wash is located in Hackney Downs Studios, an old printworks near Dalston. It's a very creative space with a cafe and restaurant called Autumn Yard. Plus, a great pub on the corner for a jar after work.

Having a background in fine arts, Belgin has always been interested in working with colours, so transitioning from physical paint to a digital medium was a natural progression. She has graded many award winning short films, documentaries, music videos and commercials for clients such as Dove, Mothercare, Firetrap, Suzuki, Desperados & Paddy Power. Belgin enjoys very much the collaborative process of grading in order to create visually striking images.
