My name is Zach Smothers and I am a Colorist whose big interest is 1950s-60s sitcoms. Many of my projects showcase examples of fine-detail color grading using rotoscoping and motion tracking. My work has been featured on popular websites including CNETThe Nerdist, A.V. ClubExycasinosBoingBoing, The LAD Bible, Dangerous Minds, iHorror, Devour and Reddit.
