Ntropic has added colorist Ayumi Ashley to its NY talent roster. She rounds out capabilities at a studio that can take on varied aspects of content creation.
Having been raised in several countries with multilingual parents—both classical musicians—Ashley was surrounded by arts and culture from a young age. While attending the Academy of Art in San Francisco, she forged the university’s first colorist track, putting changes in place which remain in the motion picture and TV department curriculum to this day.
Even before graduation, Ashley began to work as a high-demand independent artist. She eventually co-founded Mission Film and Design where she worked directly with Silicon Valley giants such as Google, Dropbox and Facebook—as well as with leading advertising agencies such as BBDO, Goodby, Silverstein & Partners and Y&R to service brands.
Following her career in San Francisco, Ashley’s creative spirit and desire to take on the East Coast market brought her to New York where she now heads Ntropic’s color division.
