Tony Osborne


A highly experienced colourist, Tony works across a number of genres: from drama and biopic, through fashion and food, to natural history and historical documentaries, as well as animation and commercials.

He started his career in the BBC in London where he spent ten years gaining experience in editing and telecine operation. He left to pursue a freelance career in Soho and Bristol.

After joining Films at 59, he was involved in some of the UK’s first HD productions for broadcasters such as the BBC, HBO and NHK. He is now fully involved in 2K/4K TV and Theatrical release colour work.

Tony was the colourist of choice for the flagship BBC series HIDDEN KINGDOMS in 2013 and WONDERS OF THE MONSOON in 2014 which have been highly acclaimed for their visuals.

Tony believes that by meeting Producers, Directors & DoPs early in a production, the style, look and feel can evolve and contribute to the emotion and meaning of a finished film. Tony was awarded a 2016 RTS award for Best Grade for Oxford Scientific Films’ Secret Life of Twins
