On-line/Colorist: David Allen has enjoyed working on such groundbreaking HD projects as “Discovery Eco-Challenge” – shot in Patagonia with 20 Sony HD cameras. He finished numerous films and broadcast programs on one of the first Sony linear HD suites in the country. Clients included NOVA, Discovery, and National Geographic.
In 2004, colorist Dave Allen opened a Final Cut Pro/Avid Media Composer suite, continuing a 25-year relationship with Boston’s filmmaking community as the color expert of choice. His suite currently includes a Kona HD-video card, Media Composer Soft, SDI Mojo, and, in the coming months, an Avid Adrenaline HD. With this configuration Dave can handle projects ranging from DV to HD, in both Avid and Final Cut. Dave also works as an offline editor on many projects, including the highly praised PBS cooking show, "Simply Ming." He and his wife, Julia Dixon Eddy (also an editor), live in Framingham, MA.
