​DANIEL ORENTLICHER

Founder & Colorist

Daniel fell in love with color early on while earning his BFA in Media Production at Emerson College. He started his color career as an intern at Technicolor Hollywood. Shortly after, he moved back to his hometown of New York, initially working as a freelance colorist. During that time, he was a color assist at Color Collective, where he worked on numerous commercials both national and international, as well as award winning feature films including Moonlight, If Beale Street Could Talk, and Gloria Bell.

At the start of 2018, he opened his own color house, Color Nest, in New York City, where he splits his time between feature films and commercials. His recent work includes Academy Award Nominee, Traffic Stop, SXSW Audience Award winner, The Light of the Moon, BFI London Best Film Nominee, Lingua Franca, and assorted commercial work including the MoMA, Google, Volkswagen, Johnson & Johnson, Marriott, the NFL, and Estée Lauder. 

When Daniel is not in his color suite, you can find him outside playing ultimate frisbee, writing screenplays, and paying too much for popcorn at his local movie theater.
