SJ ROGERS SMITH
SJ has been working in the New York City post production community since 2007. The University of Kansas graduate began her career as an editor and motion graphics artist with CBS News. At Technicolor-PostWorks (2008-2017), Smith expanded her skill set to encompass editorial finishing, color grading, and visual effects. After departing Technicolor-PostWorks, she spent two years in commercial visual effects, specializing in beauty work and creative look integration. She has applied her talents to projects ranging from Netflix, documentaries, independent features and commercials. Notable long format projects include The Big Sick, Strong Island, The Americans, The Jinx, and feature doc “Ailey” premiering at Sundance 2021.
She loves collaborating with directors to bring new life to their images. Harnessing a wide skill set, SJ often finds unconventional solutions to elevate a director’s vision and execute them effortlessly.
A student of the latest post technologies, she enjoys both the variety of her work and the opportunity to use post-production tools in creative and innovative ways. She is currently a Senior Colorist at Final Frame in New York.
DIRECTOR, "PRAY AWAY"
"SJ is a dream creative collaborator and true professional. As a director, the best colleagues are fellow artists who really listen to your vision, while also bringing their full artistic selves to the table. That's when the magic happens, and that's exactly what happened when working with SJ. She's smart as hell, intuitive, an incredible problem solver, and efficient with time without ever making you feel rushed. She really is at the top of her craft. By day two I'd already requested SJ color the rest of my movies for all eternity.
Hire this colorist! You won't regret it."
DIRECTOR / WRITER of "BRUCE!!!!" & "EKLYPSE"
I've worked on multiple projects with SJ from a feature that had a national theatrical release to a project I shot 20 years ago om miniDV and wanted to revive, and each time she manages to take the projects to levels I didn't imagine and offer and execute creative ideas within my vision that I never would've thought of. If you're lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with her, DO IT!
