Creative studio Nice Shoes has expanded its Toronto location, adding colorist Yulia Bulashenko.
She brings over seven years of experience as a freelance colorist, working worldwide across on projects with such top global clients as Nike, Volkswagen, MTV, Toyota, Diesel, Uniqlo, Uber, Adidas and Zara, among numerous others.
Her passion for cinema and photography is mirrored by a will to master the latest techniques in digital filmmaking results in work that blends technical perfection with beauty and art.
Her dynamic approach has elevated work across commercials, music videos, fashion, and feature films. Notable projects include Sia and Diplo’s (LSD) music video for “Audio,” “Sound and Vision” a tribute to the late singer David Bowie directed by CANADA for whom she has been a colorist of choice for the past 5 years; and feature films The Girl From The Song and Gold.

“Joining Nice Shoes gives me the opportunity to work with new clients, take on different types of projects, and collaborate with a number of talented teammates is really exciting for me as an artist,” says Bulashenko. “I’m looking forward to bringing my vision to a new market and continuing to expand my craft into new genres.”
Bulashenko began her career as a fashion photographer, organically transitioning into creating fashion films. Through handling all of the post-production on her own film projects, she discovered a passion for the nuanced art of color.
After building relationships with a number of collaborators, she began taking on projects as a freelance colourist, working with clients in Spain and the UK and quickly establishing herself as a sought-after talent for exquisite color grading on a wide range of projects throughout Europe, Mexico, Qatar, and India.
Managing director Justin Pandolfino adds, “We’re excited to announce Yulia as the first of a number of new signings as we enter our fourth year in the Toronto market. Bringing her onboard is part of our ongoing efforts to unite the best talent from around the world to deliver stunning design, animation, VFX, VR/AR, editorial, color grading, and finishing for our clients.”
Bulashenko is available immediately and will be based out of Nice Shoes’ Toronto studio, while also available remotely via Nice Shoes’s New York, Boston, Chicago, and Minneapolis spaces.
Reel 360 wishes Yulia the best of luck.
