The third of six boys from the farm town of Exeter, Ontario, Clinton's love affair with all things artistic began with an intense interest in storytelling which quickly expanded into the realm of film. Early on,  Clinton learned the place of a clever tongue, a witty comment and a warm sense of humour. As an independent and creative individual with high principles and deep personal integrity, he focused most of his studies on early cinema and the syntactic principles of film as a student of The University of Western Ontario's Film Studies program. After finishing a post graduate diploma in Post Production from Humber College, he launched himself into the post production world. Colour was a perfect match with its technical inclination and powerful ability to influence storytelling. With almost 5 years experience assisting and grading, Clinton made the jump into the Colourist's chair.
