Specializing in the art of color correction and grading, Grade is a post-production video/film color suite serving the Kansas City market and beyond.
Color correction and grading is often a final process in the creation of a video/film. Grade was created to make that final step for color treatment powerful and painless. Grade's color suite utilizes the full version of Black Magic's DaVinci Resolve. This is the same software being used for many high end commercials and Hollywood films on the market today. Steps are continually being taken to build upon coloring techniques as well as technical upgrades to deliver a professional and polished product.

Some still grabs from color work performed on pieces for THRIVEGulu from the talented crew at Sometimes Studios. Powerful stories from those who have had to forge through true human suffering.
Always cooking up good stuff in the color suite. Reminds me of this spot colored for BicMedia and delicious food from the Kansas City Steak Company!
Stills from a fun spot I got to color for Garmin!

Stills from some color work I had the pleasure to do for mtvidyo from DoP Christopher Commons.

As I approach the summit of this mountain in my life I am reminded of an amazing spot I colored for Garmin and the breathtaking view! It is one of my favorites!
As an update, I still continue in the battle against Hodgkins Lymphoma. It is an aggressive cancer that has required an aggressive chemotherapy treatment plan that I started shortly after I was diagnosed last fall.
To date, I have successfully completed 10 of 12 treatments spanning a timeframe of 6 months. 6 weeks after my 12th treatment they will perform a PET scan to detect if any tumors remain. The doctors feel confident in my body’s reaction to treatment so far and by mid April we should know if the results will be cancer free. I’m deeply hopeful for that day!
The doctors are confident because at the 2 month scan I they could only detect 1 small remainder of a tumor in comparison to the 10+ large tumors we found before I began treatment.
I am very grateful to all those who support me in this struggle. Chemotherapy has been very taxing physically, financially, and emotionally but appears to be working effectively! I’m blessed to continue to be able to work and for the trust others have in allowing me to bring my passion and love for color to many great projects.
Thank you all for the kindness and love shown. They truly have blessed and strengthened me in the struggle of the day to day.
Stills from an awesome piece I had the blessing of working on last year for the talented Austin Walsh Studio
Thinking about this warmer spot I colored that is filled with adventures in Thailand instead of the negative windchill going on outside! Great work from my friends Landon and Drew at Sometimes Studio.
Though I won’t be to a barber any time soon I can still think back to these Sprint spots I got to color there!
All this beautiful snow lately had me thinking back on an ITC spot I colored for Drake Cooper

I know things have been quiet on the page, and I have a lot of great projects to update you on. Right now, I’m fighting for my life against stage 3 lymphoma cancer.
Unfortunately, my health coverage denied assistance to help me pay for cancer and I am left facing a great amount of medical bills. Some friend in the film industry started a GoFundMe. If there are any of you willing to help donate or share it all really helps.
