Boogie Studio - Gary Chuntz is one of Toronto’s leading commercial and feature film colorists, whose credits include Jean Marc Vallée’s recent Toronto International Film Festival success, Café De Flore.
Originally from London, England, Chuntz started out working in a film lab before moving to South Africa where he began his career as a colorist in the early 80’s.
In 1988, Chuntz moved back to London and flourished as a senior colorist at the Moving Picture Company, emerging as a prominent commercials artist and consultant to directors and cinematographers. Several years later he settled in Toronto, where he continued to grow his worldwide commercial client base through his work at Command Post/Toybox. Chuntz then took his expertise and co-founded Toronto’s first commercial color correction boutique, Notch. A prominent client list includes Ford, VW, Budweiser, Molson, Canon, Hyundai and Pepsi, to name just a few.
Most recently, Chuntz worked in the Commercials Division of Technicolor Montreal.
"I still remember Gary in his white lab coat with his cyan, magenta, and yellow filters looking at negatives," said internationally renowned cinematographer Steve Gordon, who first worked with Chuntz in South Africa. "When I reconnected with Gary in Toronto, technology was changing and I was so pleased to have someone I knew I could totally rely on."
"There are people who are technically brilliant, and there are people who are creative," continued Gordon. "Seldom do you find both of those strengths in the same person, but Gary is one of them."
“We’re delighted to have Gary join our team,” said Benoit Martel, co-founder of Boogie Studio. “He’s very professional, very fast, and always a pleasure to work with. Most importantly, Gary brings great ideas to the table, so he’s a great asset to the clients.”
With over 20 years as a world-class colorist, Gary Chuntz has won numerous awards, including International Monitor Awards, Bessies and the Bob Man Award for achievement in the film industry. Chuntz will join Boogie Studio in November of this year.
