"We have an amazing team here at Four Walls and I'm really looking forward to getting started and working alongside the talented bunch at Cut+ Run on our first projects together.

“We are delighted to have Jon join the team," added Andy Brown. "Having such a talented colourist to lead our new Baselight suite is going to make a massive difference to us and our clients.”
