Commercial and feature colorist Siggy Ferstl joined Company 3 Los Angeles in 2008. He began learning his craft in his native Australia and quickly found success at home with his natural creative talent combined with his technical skill. This skill allowed him to work throughout Southeast Asia before accepting an offer to work in London in the mid ’90s. His experience living and working in these three key regions, with varied cultures, has given him a unique perspective on a wide variety of attitudes about art, the collaborative process and coloring styles in these different markets.
Since arriving at Company 3, his talents have been quickly recognized by US creatives and by the HPA (Hollywood Post Alliance). Ferstl has now won more HPA Awards than any other artist for his innovative color work that brings a truly cinematic sensibility to every project. Ferstl has recently colored major spots for clients including Nike, Mercedes Benz, Cadillac, Dodge and many others. His extensive feature credits include blockbusters such as The Hangover Part III and the second through fourth installments of the blockbuster Underworld series. He also collaborated with fellow Company 3 colorists on Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Ferstl is a technical innovator, constantly developing new approaches to color grading to maximize with the always-evolving toolset.
