Joe Finley

As colorist on “Game of Thrones,” Joe is highly sought after for his work. He came to Sim’s Chainsaw over two years ago, with over 20 years of experience in features and episodic television. Joe started working on the show while at his last job at Modern Videofilm. Joe’s career began at Laser Pacific, and was a senior colorist at Modern for almost two decades. His credits there comprise over 100 feature films, including “The Descendants,” “3:10 to Yuma” and “Walk the Line.” A four-time HPA Award nominee, he won the HPA Award for Color Grading in the TV category in 2012 for the “Game of Thrones” episode “The Prince of Winterfell.” Joe sees an opportunity to help grow scripted television at Sim, and would like to seek out more high-end scripted television shows. Saying that the best part of his job is “collaborating with other creative people,” Joe knows that there has never been a better time to work in scripted television. “Creative people enjoy more freedom in television today,” he concludes. “A lot of great cinematographers and directors are moving to TV today because they want that freedom.”
