From the start, the company’s focus has always been to be respected as the best boutique facility in the UK. Formerly at MPC as a Colourist and Senior Online Editor, Thomas Urbye has industry-leading knowledge of digital intermediate & high definition post production. His filmography includes over thirty high-end feature films and television drama series.

In January 2010 and July 2012 he was included in Broadcast magazine’s ‘Hot 100 People in the Broadcast Industry’, at number two in the ‘Craft’ section, and in March 2010 he was voted by his peers and industry professionals as one of the Top 25 Colourists in the UK in Televisual magazine, the highest ranking from an independent boutique facility. For television he has graded critically acclaimed drama series ‘Quirke’, ‘Top Boy 1 & 2′, ‘South Riding’, ‘The Fades’, ‘Criminal Justice’ (series 2), ‘Dead Set’, ‘Desperate Romantics’, and ‘Whitechapel 3′, as well as high-end documentaries for the BBC, ITV and Channel 5. He has also graded multiple commercials for brands such as Nike, Fiat, Peugeot, Jaguar, Reebok and Mercedes.


Mark Maltby is a senior online editor and colourist, supervising his team of assistants from first conform right through to delivery. With a keen eye and technical knowledge, Mark is able to make sure that projects are ready for the final grade and that the final finish is of the highest standard.

Dan Marbrook is a producer and work-flow expert who previously managed the post production facilities at Virgin. Having worked with The Look since 2010 he has brought his expertise in facility management and also acted as the facilities main producer. Dan not only has the client skills, but the technical understanding of both picture finishing and VFX, to make sure that each project that comes into the facility is handled the right way for that particular job.
