Sonia Abellán Avilés


Although his first approach to the world of the image was through graphic design, he soon realized that what really attracts him is the moving image. He worked in different production and audiovisual postproduction positions and was, gradually, approaching the work of the colorist, until he decided to specialize in color grading.

He is currently working at the studio El Colorado, where he has participated in the color retouch of projects for film and television such as Villaviciosa de lado , Morir , The notebook of Sara or the series Pulsaciones and has also given color to documentaries, to the program Wild Frank , short films such as Piscina and countless advertisements advertising
