Heather Hay is a Senior Colourist with over 18 years of experience colouring film, advertising and television.
Her eye for picture and colour was first cultivated when she completed a degree at the prestigious Brooks Institute of Photography. The skills learnt in photography translated into colouring film, and helped her get her foot in the door at Avenue Edit in Los Angeles. From there, her career catapulted when the company moved her to Chicago, where she worked with high profile agencies like Leo Burnett, Foote Cone and Belding, and Ogilvy (to name just a few). She was then approached to work at Frame, Set and Match in Australia and quickly became a favourite on the Australian film & Television scene.
In Sydney, Heather worked with agencies MC Saatchi, Clemenger BBDO and JWT, and worked with international clients such as Westfield, Sunglass Hut, and Jim Beam. She worked on feature films Not Suitable For Children and Griff The Invisible, and also worked with directors like Golden Globe nominee Joel Edgerton.
After 7 years in Australia, she was asked to work in Mexico City with Cinema 305. Her work has again crossed mediums of film, TV and advertising – including features such as La Niña de la Mina, music videos for Natalia Lafourcade, and TVCs for high profile clients such as Nissan, AT&T, Samsung, Pizza Hut and Coca Cola as well.
Heather has fallen in love with Mexico City and its culture, and it's an honour to now call Mexico home.
